ap7522 'force" standard on SSID

Hello guys,

 

Is there a way to “force” the access points to operate on only one specific 802.11 standard for a given SSID?

For instance, our wireless network consists of 4 SSIDs. The access points operate on the 2.4 GHz band only. Any device connected to any of the first three SSIDs would use the 802.11n standard on the 2.4Ghz band. However, if we connect to the fourth SSID, using any device, they would use the 802.11g standard. We tested this using smartphones, windows 10 laptops and mobile handheld devices.

Also, we are using access points model AP7522, managed by a RFS4000 controller, running 5.9.1.2-006R firmware version.

Thank you!

Hi,

You can configure data rates under SSID settings, here is an example in both CLI and GUI:

 

VX9000-Primary(config-wlan-New-Event)~#data-rates
2.4GHz  5GHz
VX9000-Primary(config-wlan-New-Event)~#data-rates 2.4GHz
b-only   bg       bgn      default  g-only   gn       custom
VX9000-Primary(config-wlan-New-Event)~#data-rates 2.4GHz g-only
VX9000-Primary(config-wlan-New-Event)~#commit write
[ok]

Thanks a lot for your reply, and sorry for the late answer.

We have a HUGE problem with the access points interfering with one another. Too many of them installed in a relatively small area, and, at this point, setting the correct transmit power is pretty much guesswork.

 

Thanks again!
