Hi,

Using the console app running on the CYW954907AEVAL1F evaluation kit, I'm trying to configure an AP on channel 38 (5Ghz band) with a 40Mhz bandwidth using the following command :

 

 

start_ap WW101WPA open DUMMY_KEY 38 40 no_wps 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

 

 

Everything seems to be correcty setup :

 But using a laptop with wifi 802.11ac/n, I see the AP is on channel 36 !

Any idea ? I've tried following commands without any success too :

 

 

 

stop_ap
set_preferred_association_band 1
wifi_powersave 0
wl down
sleep 100
wl nmode 1
wl mimo_bw_cap 1
sleep 100
wl up
sleep 100
start_ap WW101WPA open DUMMY_KEY 38 40 no_wps 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

Hi,

Thanks for the update. Please check "wl chanspec" command as well after initializing your device as AP on channel 38 with 40 MHz bandwidth. 

Thanks
