RUTX11 - DFS channel change


I have a question regarding RUTX11 detecting DFS range usage and automatically changing channels.

How does the Access Point inform connected hosts about the channel change when it detects an event from the DFS range and switches channels from outside the range?
Does it send a response indicating which channel is next and how?


When an Access Point detects a radar signal on a DFS channel and decides to switch channels, it follows a standard procedure to inform connected clients. The AP sends out a Channel Switch Announcement (CSA) frame, which includes the new channel number and the time remaining before the switch occurs.
More information can be found on this Wikipedia article:

Hope this helps!
