can I remove a channel in the Regulatory Domain profile without disrupting the network?


Hi,

 

We have an issue with clientbridges on our wireless network.
These clients do not support channel 124.

This causes a clientbridge not to associate with an AP that runs on channel 124.

 

We have the following channels enabled on our wireless lan:
   country-code NL
   valid-11g-channel 1,6,11
   valid-11a-channel 36,40,44,52,60,100,108,116,124,132
   valid-11a-40mhz-channel-pair 36-40,44-48,52-56,60-64,100-104,108-112,116-120,124-128,132-136
We run on version AOS-W 6.1.2.4
 
My question:
I would like to disable channel 124 in our Regulatory Domain profile, what will happen then?
Will ARM take care of that by changing the channels in a smooth way?
Or will all or only the concerning AP's do a reboot, so causing clients disconnecting to the network?

Do I also have to disable 40mHz-channel-pair 124-128?
The clientbridge does not support 802.11a-HT

Generally if it is one channel in many, removing it won't cause much disruption.  The other APs will not reset.  In my experience this sort of change is non-disruptive even to clients connected to that AP, though they may loose one or two pings.

 

Best to remove the channel pair as well.


If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.
