DFS question

My Asus Merlin router is set to auto channel and uses channel 108 to broadcast 5ghz wifi.
I can connect without problems with my other devices including android phones and an ipad.

On my Slate the router is grayed out with a dfs label.

Why cannot Slate use this channel when my other devices connects without problem?

I’m located in sweden if that matters.


Did you select “Sweden” on advanced admin menue for WIFI ?
This will configure the contry releated channel configuration. That should be including country releated channels, WiFi power and DFI releated things.


That’s because the slate doesn’t have DFS certification, So we filter the DFS channel.

This is such a significant limitation making this device unsuitable for 5G travel repeater as most hotels use DFS. Very disappointed

It can be the only 50% of wifi speed is releated the follow bug report:

will beryl have dfs certification?
otherwise I have to find other solution.

In Slate go to Luci>network>wireless and choose the Country Code US in Advanced…you have channel 108. Make repeater from Luci/ in Network>Wireless and click Scan in 5Ghz or 2,4Ghz and make Join. Choose a name for Interface and Save. If you make from UI you have greyed DFS channels.

Sorry. No DFS support in the UI.

Any plans to have the device certified for DFS?
