Well, the on-going saga continues.

I have an R600 that for some reason disassociates clients giving 'reason 8' that i found in the web UI log.

Could someone tell me what reason 8 is please?

Also, could someone maybe explain what the AP classes as 'interference'?

I am confused as to why the AP all of a sudden starts to SmartSelect to find a clearer 5G channel when there no other rogue 5G networks anywhere nearby.

Plus, the 2.4G network is perfectly stable and that has plenty of reason to hop about as there quite a fair few nearby networks.

The way Channel Fly works is that it is always trying to find the best channel to deliver throughput to the client by using predictive capacity management.

You can alter the mean time between channel changes using this cli command:

set channelfly wlan0 mtbc 500

In my opinion I would turn off Channel Fly is it can be destructive in nature to certain clients; I have a home network which is all Ruckus, and I don't use Channel Fly as my Sky Box does not like it.
