Question

mesh shortcut. how to line up AP ?


hi all,
I have 3 AP, ap6562 running WING 5.9.2.3. AP1 is wired and VC, others are in mesh. all 3 are in line
AP2 link to AP1
AP3 link to AP2
everything's fine, wifi is efficient. But sometimes something happen and then AP3 link to AP1, and then signal is bad quality, clients disconnect, throughput fall down dramatically.
is there any way I can bind AP3 to AP2 definitively ?
thank you for your tips and directions.

Hi Dominix,

You will need to configure a preferred neighbor.

The below article will explain in a little more detail how to do it if you are unfamiliar.

Of course,the first one isn't working just because it's linked from the other side. 😉

Sorry about that i sent the wrong link.
It is the same as the one Ronald sent.
OK, it understand what it does, but when I apply this method, whether from the controler or directly on the AP, it just freeze the AP. unplug is needed. there might be a bug.
