Does the IdentiFi Wireless Controller allow for setting a the 40 MHz intolerant bit to only allow 20 MHz channels (2.4 Radio)?

I believe there are two scenarios where our AP will step down to 20 Mhz mode.

  1. During intial bootup, the ap will scan whether 40 mhz channel is clear.  If it detects any interference from other ap’s, it will step down to 20 mhz.

  2. The processing of the fat intolerant bit only occurs during the association request from a client or a mgmt. command frame from the client.
