    I commented only today, after my first use of it, that it placed my AP on channel 1, which already had 3 strong AP's on it. It did not use channel 11, for example, which had only one weak AP. Anyone else?

    It does seem to favor channel 1 every time... Channel 3 here has no APs and has historically been the strongest to use in my house...

    I use channel 13, it's always been my lucky number, especially on fridays (no, i am not kidding you). :)
    I'm prolly gonna test Victek's mod on the next test build.

    It has selected Channel 1, which is the best channel for my location.

    Let's say it has chosen a channel. When will it choose another channel again?

    Btw I find that this feature is very unstable.

    For example, I use this for my 2 routers connected via WDS. Although in the beginning they settled on a channel, after a while it wasn't connected anymore.

    I find it fairly useless. It placed my router on channel 6, which already has 5-6 other AP's on it. I normally use channel 10 with no problems.

    Strongly recommended to fix a channel when you play WDS ... the association is made by MAC .. but the radio noise could be different on each place, so, I expect problem for sure. Mine is mainly at channel one but if I switch ON another router closer then shifts to channel 6 and 11 .. I think it follows ETSI recommendation ..

    Seems to be working fine here. Mostly changes between 1 and 11. I have not seen it switch to 6 yet.
