Radar Detection 5GHz WiFi.
« on: June 26, 2016, 07:25:20 PM »

My Motorola AP0622 access point has Radar Detection for the WiFi, trying to set it up I found it had turned off the 5GHz WiFi radio part as it had detected 'Radar'  >:D.

I live next to the flight path to East Midlands Airport ( 7 miles away ) and we get planes coming along the field at the back of us or taking a short cut they come over us .
So I would think this is where my access point has picked up the radar signal.

Is the any easy way I can see these detection's or pick the radar up ?.
I have a set of 8 fixed IP's From my Eclipse isp.
BT ADSL2 (G992.3) line>HG612 set as a Modem, Bridge, WAN not Bound to LAN1 or 2 >Smoothwall (Hardware Firewall and routing) > Ethernet LAN, DMZ,WiFI LAN and Spare LAN .

It ought to shift channel, rather than turn it off - that's what my Xclaim does. Some access points do turn the radio off (for a while) if they're configured with a specific channel - if that's true, try letting the AP choose the channel automatically.

I'm also pretty sure the radar involved is either weather radar, or some limited forms of military radar that are reducing, rather than civilian radar.

Especially around page 20
