How to change the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radio channel of the Cloudtrax network

If you have an existing Wi-Fi network that use only one 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel, you can improve the tracking performance of Accuware Wi-Fi Location Monitor by configuring the Open mesh network to operate on the same radio channel as the existing Wi-Fi network. Setting the same radio channel for the two networks will provide the system with more data to estimate the station positions, thus improving accuracy. If you do not know the channel number of your Wi-Fi network, please consult with your network administrator or take a look at this page.

To set the radio channel of your Open Mesh network:

  1. Access the Cloudtrax dashboard at this URL.
  2. Click on Configure > Radio.
  3. Change the Channel (2.4GHz) according to the radio channel of the already existing WLAN.
  4. Press the button Save changes in the top center of the page to confirm the changes.

The change will be propagated in few minutes.
