Just did a channel scan and noticed it putting my nodes channels 3 & 8 - Any reason for not using the standard non-overlapping 1,6 & 11?
I appreciate 3 & 8 won't be overlapping themselves, but 3 will be overlapping the neighbours on 1 & 6 and 8 overlappying 6 & 11.
Just seems to go against standard practises.

With the Velop Mesh-System, the main idea is to have seamless Internet connectivity throughout your household. The channel finder feature selects the best wireless frequency based on the location of that particular node.
How's the Velop wireless connection working out for you?

We definitely appreciate the insight. The Velops channel finder feature picks the channel that it feels will benefit you in both connectivity and coverage.

This has to be the worst deflection of the day. Perhaps you could just answer the question?
Linksys even references channel overlap by stating "The recommended channels for the 2.4 GHz network are 1, 6, 9 and 11 since they are considered non-overlapping channels. For the 5 GHz network, channels 36, 40, 44 and 48 are recommended to less likely encounter interference."
