Linksys routers that support Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS)

Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) is a spectrum-sharing mechanism that allows wireless LANs (WLANs) to coexist with radar systems.  It automatically selects a frequency that does not interfere with certain radar systems while operating in the 5 GHz band.

NOTE:  If a radar is detected on the router’s operating channel, the router may lose Wi-Fi connectivity as it switches to an unoccupied DFS channel.  This is more likely to happen if you live within 20 miles (35 km) of an airport.
