I wish it did :) Already set to 1800 which I don't think I've ever changed so I assume that is the default.


How about set to 86400?

In 1.00(AAKL.28)C0 Sideband control doesn't work. Can't use Wifi Auto channel if any of your devices doesn't support channels 12-13.

Its never recommended to use Auto anyway, especially on 2.4Ghz.  Due to the lack of consistency in devices in the UK supporting 12-13, you want to stick to channels 1, 6 and 11 to avoid clashing with multiple channels.  Auto has a nasty habit of picking other channels, causing crosstalk that other devices can't see. 

WiFi relies on being able to SEE when any APs you are on the same channel as are transmitting, you need to be on EXACTLY the same channel for that to work, otherwise its just seen as noise and impairs performance.  Not an issue if you have a clear channel to yourself, but that's only going to happen if you live in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors on 2.4Ghz and increasing rare even on 5Ghz.

Agree with Alex. Some kit can list the channels allowed by auto; but if not then you’re possibly being very unfair to your neighbours, straddling two or even three standard channels (if you’re greedy, on 40 MHz twin channel). Using a four channel (1, 5, 9, 13) pattern is quite a reasonable idea in a congested area but all neighbours have to agree on it and many wouldn’t have a clue, so politically challenging, so best to stick to the standard 1, 6, 11.
