Thus said: https://en.avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-7590/knowledge-base/publication/show/1349_Status-message-Radar-detection-DFS-wait-time-triggered-by-channel-assignments-5-GHz-temporarily-unavailable/ it's maybe just a question of technical challenge or not.

 

However, the Fritz did and it's operating nicely in the vincinity - for the other 1.8 million inhabitants of the city as well (including intl. airport with it's weather radar). I fear now I have to chase away the neighbors from one of my only 4 channels by putting the GWN7160 RF power (unfairly) to the max, hoping they will hopping away. smile





Nope, English isn't my mother tongue. But that's why I'm here. smile

Sorry that I've not respond for quite a while.  Was very busy at work this week.

 

Thank you all for looking into this.  Having nine 20MHz 5/5.8 GHZ channels is not bad, but not ideal.

 

Need to resist temptation... ah...

Finally got around to doing a brief walk test to check out signal strength distance. It's completely dropping off at about 50m for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Less than I expected (it's broadcasting on high power) but still pretty good. I ran a cable up the leading edge of the underside of my stairs then across to the AP. Not a particularly good photo but gives an idea of the unobtrusiveness of the AP once it's mounted. To give a better idea of size it's about 20cm diameter and has a mounted depth of about 5cm.
