Question

What's the behavior in the DCS function? Why does it select the same channel with all nearby APs?

Answer

DCS is to select a channel with minimized interference for usage.

And DCS will scan 3 times for the initial scan to make sure the result is optimized.

Each DCS scan time will be shifted to make sure not all the APs are doing DCS scan at the same time.

DCS will not stop Wi-Fi service during scanning. But when the channel changes, Wi-Fi service will be interrupted.

When ‘DCS client aware’ is enabled, DCS will ignore the scanning result and not change the channel when there are clients connecting to the radio.
