Getting ready to enable Auto Tx Power Ctrl (ATPC) for AP3605. What value do I need for Auto Tx Power Ctrl Adjust? Is this the range up or down it can go or does the min max values set that? Also how does it determine when it needs to adjust power? Any info is appreciated.

Hello Thomas,

A typical setting would be to set the Max to the highest setting in the config and Min to the lowest setting (in dBm). The system will automatically try and adjust in that range. It does so by sending packets in the air with a name defined in the RF Domain field. Each access point hears that packet and can determine how to automatically adjust the transmit power of an ap.

I'm still confused. What should the   "Auto Tx Power Ctrl Adjust" be set to? Do I just leave it at 0?

You don't need to use the Control Adjust, that can stay at 0.

Is it ok for all APs to be defined with the same RF domain?

Typically it would a name chosen based on location.
Example: Building X, Building Y
