I’ve been seeing many instances where APs are on the same channel as their neighboring AP with RSSI in the 60s or 70s. I’m looking for steps to take to prevent this that don’t require manual channel plans, as I have too many APs to manage in that manner (wish this wasn’t the case).
In this one example I’m trying to figure out why the two radios are showing drastically different channel costs. full disclosure, not really sure what these numbers mean or how they’re calculated so any info or resources are greatly appreciated.
Also of note, these Radio Profiles are set to auto power selection with max power of 14dB. There are 50+ APs at the site (apx every other room), yet every AP is running at power 14. none have adjusted power down at all. Is this typical? My understanding is that even if Co-channel and adjacent channel interference are minimized, RF should still be kept to minimum power necessary to avoid general interference.
