Hey I'm trying to configure my Raspberry Pi to connect to my router on channel 8 (2.447G). The WiFi network adapter I have for my Pi seems to be stuck on channel 1.

iwlist scan only lists the one ap near me on channel 1, my router is on 8. iwlist frequency lists all 14 channels as available and that its current is 1.

I've tried iwconfig wlan0 freq 2.447G. It completes but running iwconfig still shows frequency at 2.412G

I'm using a Realtek 8188CUS adapter.

Any ideas?
