DFS channels will not connect



While I was last troubleshooting my musicflow problems I noticed that they were all hanging out connected to one of 2 accesspoints on the 5GHz network, even one 2 rooms over where the signal was terrible (unifi admin showed them at -80ish)

Anyway, after much messing about, it seems that the musicflow devices will not connect to any channels that are in the range of 52 thru 144. As soon as I stick an AP onto 36 to 48 or else at the upper end of the band, the musicflows connect to it and work fine.

This really needs to be solved as now that 802.11ac is a thing, with its 80MHz channels (and 160MHz coming) then using the whole band over multiple AP's is more important than ever.
