LM19, CPU:AMD5 2400G, ASUS ROG Strix B450-I motherboard, looks like an integrated Intel shipset for LAN and Wifi,
its not specified in the documentation I can find.
lspci shows :-

The WIFI is seeing all the networks around , including mine , and that is connected on the LAN.
the wifi is now set up as a Hotspot.
My phone can see it , so its transmitting OK , as its reporting other networks the receiver looks OK, and that would indicate the correct modules are loaded and working.
But if I try to connect my phone all I can see on the phone is "authenticating"

The s/w has decided to put my hot spot on Ch2, when the top end of the band is clear.
Is there anyway of changing the channel its using ? , I'd like to move it up to 5GHz as well, the boards wifi adaptor is capable of both bands.
Especially as I can transmit 150W in to high gain antennas on 2.3GHz, so any local wifi on 2.4 GHz gets hammered by high signal levels
putting the wifi on a clear channel would eliminate co-channel or adjacent channel blocking.
