Hopefully this is just due to my lack of knowledge, but when channels are set to auto, does an AP and the clients connected to that AP get assigned different channels? I was assuming that whatever channel was assigned to the AP, the clients would be on the same channel. What I'm seeing in my office is on our AP map the channel assigned to the AP is different than when I look at the list of clients connected to that AP, for most of the APs. For instance, the map shows AP1 on channel 40, but the clients connected to AP1 are on channel 44. AP2 on the map shows as being assigned channel 149, but the clients connected to AP2 are on channel 153. AP3 on the map shows it as being on channel 161 and the clients connected to AP3 are on 161, except for one client that shows as being on channel 36. AP4 on the map shows as being assigned channel 36 and the clients connected to AP4 are also on channel 36. We're not experiencing any issues, I'm just wondering if that's the way it works, or should the clients connected to any AP be on the same channel as the AP.
