Not using channel 12 and 13 on WLC

Answered Question
Feb 15th, 2007

Hi,

We have a WLC setup, and we dont want to let the auto RF use the channel 12 and 13, because some of the devices on our network do not support these channels.

Is there a way to do this, or do I have to change the country code to US, because I think 12 and 13 are not used there?

Thank you

I have this problem too.

Hello Steven ;-)

It's explained in details in the RRM white paper

Check http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/114/rrm.html

"....

The list of channels used by the DCA algorithm, for both channel

monitoring and assignment, can be altered in WLC code version 4.0 or

later. For example, in the U.S., by default the DCA algorithm uses only

the 11b/g channels of 1, 6, and 11. In order to add channels 4 and 8,

and remove channel 6 from this DCA list, these commands must be input in

the controller CLI:

(Cisco Controller) >config advanced 802.11b channel add 4

(Cisco Controller) >config advanced 802.11b channel add 8

(Cisco Controller) >config advanced 802.11b channel delete 6
