    Thanks for the hint. Never concerned this section before. But unfortunately the user manual doesn't describe what the definition of rogue or friendly APs caused to. At the end the WLAN clients (Notebooks, Mobile Phones) are in charge to connect to an AP. How the USG change its behaviour in case of rouge APs in the vicinity?
    In our big office building where many different companies are situated, a lot of other WLAN SSIDs are to be seen when scanning for it. But should I mark all of them as rogue and own APs as friendly? What the USG will do with this information?

    Further I've changed the DCS deployment from 3 channel deployment to four channel deployment (although we got only 2 APs). But since then the APs are using different channels 5 and 9 and not longer the same channel 6 for both APs.

    Hi @USG_User ,

    Here is our suggestion about radio setting,
    you may choose all 2.4 channel into DCS list,
    disable DCS client aware, and DCS schedule at 03:00 everyday.
    (when are less network applications or less clients connect.) 


    For 5G radio profile, we would suggest you 5G channel selection method choose auto,
    AP will automatically add all channels in the DCS list.


    About rouge AP and friendly AP is designed for monitor mode. 
    Our AP can use a dedicated radio to scan wireless environment.
    Once a radio is configured in monitor mode, it can’t be used for wireless data transmission service.

    Thank you.

    Thanks a lot for your support and suggestions, Silvia. Highly appreciated.

    We give your DCS settings with manual activation of all possible channels a try.

    ... and we forget the rouge/friendly AP settings, since we do not operate an AP (or one radio) in monitor mode.
