Trying to Change RF Channel on APs on NCS

Answered Question

Hi,


I'm looking to make a few adjustments to out wireless network and need to change the RF channels on a few APs.


I've logged on to NCS went into the AP, an 1142N,  then the Radio 802.11 b/g/n and changed the RF channel under custom.


Once I pressed the save button the channel reverts back to its original channel. I've also tried this on a 1242AG the same thing happens.



I then went to the controller and tried to change the RF channel there and it took the change. I pressed apply logged out went back to NCS


made the change under custom and again it reverted back after I pressed the save button. I went back into the controller and the channel had also


reverted back even thought it gave the impression it took the changel.



Any ideas ?

If you make the change from the WLC, buy clicking on the AP and configure.  Make sure that you set it to custom and then set your channel and hit apply.... don't go back to NCS to verify right away.  You might need to wait for NCS to see the change.  I would go an review the 802.11b/g/n on the wireless tab and make sure your channel is set and not globally overridden.
