eero pro wifi 6 units all on same band
i have 4 eero pro wifi 6 units
in a large house. they all seem to be on wifi channel 1 along with the rest of the neighborhood. while channel 6 and 11 are wide open..
why is that? why arent the units spread across channels.. seems like they are creating their own channel crowding
sorry channel 1 not 0
i should also mention ALl these eeros backhauls are hardwired to the main switch.. non of the backchannels are wireless
the article u just sent me states
DFS is on eero Pro; not eero Pro 6
so i think that explains the issue, no?
Unfortunately James is misunderstanding DFS with the question you are asking.
eeros all have to use the same channels so they can communicate with one another wirelessly. Automatic Channel Selection (ACS) is what determines which channels to use across the two or three radios on your eeros in your network. You and your neighbours networks are probably picking channel 1 due to non-wifi interference being detected on channel 6 and 11.
Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) is a feature that allows the 5Ghz radios to use channels shared with Weather Radars. 3rd generation eeros recently got support to use DFS channels in some regions. DFS is likely unrelated to the question you are asking.
