I am struggling with channel selection on my access points. I am using a Balance One Core with the AP Controller enabled. I am managing 2 AP One AX and 3 AP One Mini AC with the controller.
In the AP settings, I have two configurations (one for mesh, and one for non-mesh). Inside those configs, I have enabled specific channels for each (they are supposed to be exclusive). I am having issues with non-eligible channels being used on both 2.4 and 5 Ghz. I will use the 2.4 Ghz as my example
Available channels in the configs
Meshed config - 1, 2, 10, and 11
non-mesh config - 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9
My non-mesh are currently using channels 6 and 7 (which is expected), but the mesh APs are all using channel 3. Is there something in the mesh that specifies what channels can be used? Does that completely override the settings that I have explicitly set? I have tried rebooting multiple times, but they always seem to land back on channel 3. I have tried rebooting only the two non-wired APs, and then I tried rebooting the wired AP only. Nothing changed.
