Hi

Put those AP’s in a separate AP-group and disable the 2.4 radio for that AP-group. Be careful not to change the default group

Using two different AP groups is the easiest way to accomplish this. Once AP group would have the 2.4GHz radio disabled, and the other group would have it enabled.

 

You could possibly use airmatch freeze to set specific radios to disabled, but the different AP groups are typically easier to troubleshoot.

How to Disable 2.4GHz in AOS 8.

Select the AP Group that you want to turn off 2.4GHZ. Then Select  Radio Tab. Change the 2.4GHz radio to Mode :am-monitor or Spectrum-mode if you have the licenses.

Hi

 

If you set the radio to AM or SM, the radio isn't off. For example with AM the radio can be on to perform the AM functions. You also might need licenses to do so.

Better step AFAIK:

 

1. Activate the advanced profiles under the 'GUI' user

2. Go to the AP group

3. Select the profiles on the right

4. Select RF Management

5. Select 2.4GHz Radio

6. Unselect Radio enable (be carefull that it isn't the default radio profile)

7. Submit

8. Pending Changes.

If you start using AM functions on 2.4GHz, the AM will use 2.4 GHz channels!

 

 

 


Why is the customer not using 2.4GHz? If they don't use it, what is the point of setting an AP to AM on 2.4GHz?

But. Enough said.
