I have just tested it using the command iwconfig wlan0 channel [number] and I wasn't able to change the channel. I'm afraid that feature is not supported just as the output message shows. I believe changing the channel/frequency has to be done in your router. I found these two following sites that you might find interesting:

This is interesting. whats strange is that i just downloaded the source from Edison - Software Downloads and when i look in:
edison-src/broadcom_cws/wlan/driver_bcm43x/wl_cfg80211.c i see this in the wl_cfg80211_add_virtual_iface function :
and looking at the add_monitor_if it is basically calling a function named: dhd_add_monitor and I cant see how this is implemented.
The switch statement in your message is in the wl_cfg80211_add_virtual_iface function.
Does this mean the board supports monitor mode but the functionality has not yet been implemented?
Have i misunderstood what the code is doing? Any info you have is extremely helpful
Sorry for the delay in my response. The monitor mode functionality isn't currently supported. Check this other thread, it might be interesting for you: Monitor Mode on Inten Edison.
