G'day all,
From what I have read in the forums here, I thought that setting the specified channels in the Radio Profile would assigned the max negative value to other channels so they would not be ever selected, but that doesn't seem to be happening. I have 01-06-11 selected in my radio profile, but instead ACSP seems to be working with channels 1, 5, 9 and 13. 
Here is the relevant screenshots... what am I missing?
Does the country code of the AP have anything to do with ACSP?

Hi Malcolm,

Based on your G'Day, I assume you are in Australia ;-)

I would suggest that you set your channel plan to "Europe" as the region rather than the USA. Unless your AP is in FCC mode (US) then it would default to a 4-channel plan with the setting that you have.



Can you let us know what HM version and HiveOS version you are running as well?

Kind Regards,
Gary Smith
