Let us know how to improve below document on:

DFS is a spectrum-sharing mechanism that allows wireless LANs (WLANs) to coexist with radar systems. The main benefit of using DFS is to increase the number of Wi-Fi channels by allowing to use UNII-2 channels. UNII-2 standard contains 52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 128, 132, 136 and 140 channels.

You can enable this feature on ONT’s web page:

After that, device gains access to UNII-2 channels, which can be set manually or automatically.

When DFS is enabled, 5GHz signal is unavailable for connection. Device starts channel availability check process, which would take 1-10 minutes depending on the country. For this reason, DFS channels are not immediately available.

You can also enable DFS by XML:
