This FAQ guides you through configuring the BandFlex feature on supported Zyxel access points (APs), allowing them to operate on different frequency bands (5 GHz or 6 GHz) in addition to 2.4GHz to meet specific network requirements.

Configuration Steps:

  • Go to Configure > Access point > Radio settings.
  • Scroll down to find the AP list table and click on the "BandFlex" option
  • A table displaying your supported APs will appear. Locate and select the desired AP to access its specific BandFlex settings.
  • Within the AP's BandFlex settings, select either the 5GHz or 6GHz band, depending on your network needs.

5GHz setting

6GHz setting

  • Click Update

Note:

  • Setting the AP to operate on the 6GHz band enables Wi-Fi 6E capabilities. However, devices that do not support Wi-Fi 6E will only be able to connect to the AP’s 2.4GHz band.

Supported Models:

  • At the time of this writing, the models that support BandFlex include NWA220AX-6E and WAX620D-6E.
  • For environments requiring simultaneous use of 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands within a single AP, we recommend the WAX640S-6E, a Tri-Band Wi-Fi 6E AP.
