Looks great, just got a new Y720 but the WiFi manager shows nothing on 2.4Ghz and on 5Ghz (which is the band I am currently connected) I get 5seconds of display showing the 2 channels in use, then it goes blank for 5seconds, this repeats.

 

I have similiar function on my Android devices and I have local channels I configured as well as neighbor 2.4Ghz channels in use which all display on Andriod but no display in Killer Wifi Manager
