    Hi,
    I just got AP-635. Installed it as part of my existing IAP-network. Problem is that 6 GHz led does not come on. 2.4 and 5 GHz leds have light. What setup is needed to get 6 Ghz radio working?

    Did you check your radio profiles and ARM settings?

    What's the configured country of operation? Currently, the AP-635 will enable 6GHz only in a handful of countries. As more become available, this will be enabled through updates of the DRT file.

    ok,
    that is the problem.
    DRT file is missing lot of EU-countries, it should include all of them. Adding Finland would fix my problem. When can you do that, please?

    We can only add countries that have opened up the band. While the ruling is EU-wide, phasing it in does not happen at the same pace for all countries. When we released our most recent DRT file a couple of weeks ago, 6GHz was not yet open for business in Finland. I'm not sure what the timing is for that to change (should be soon).

    ok, I tested and after changing country from FI to SE and installed latest DRT (Check for New Version -button does not retrieve the latest and installing file directly fails on 635, had to install it from webserver), I have now 6 GHz light lit up.

    Get the latest DRT (82616 at the moment of writing). For many countries, you will need at least DRT version 82446.

    Germany should work with that DRT version for 6GHz. Not sure what you mean by Zone, as that is a feature to enable SSIDs only on specific APs. If you improperly configured that, it may be that the SSID is not enabled on the AP. Your regulatory-domain should be set to the country that you are in.

    You could check the AP log, if there is a reason for the AP to not enable the 6GHz radio. Do you have enough power for the AP? In 802.3af (standard PoE, orange or red status led) the AP may not come up, or have the 6GHz radio disabled.

    do you have WPA3 on? That is mandatory for 6 Ghz.
