Any way to switch off wifi auto channel selection on RAX120?

I recently bought a RAX120 and despite manually selecting a channel on the 5ghz band in router settings I've noticed the router changes the chosen 5ghz channel to a different channel later on. 'Smart connect' is switched off. So I'm guessing the router is using auto channel selection despite no such setting showing in settings? Any way to switch this off?
Cheers

What channel did you set it to ? If you used a DFS channel the router will switch if it detects radar on the channel.

I’m using channel 48, so a non DFS channel.

Yes I am. Could that be the reason?
Quite possibly. 48/160 covers channels 36 to 64, 50% of which are DFS channels. You'd have to change to 80 MHz bandwidth to avoid using DFS.
