Default Transmit and Basic Rates for A dn G

I was playing with the different rates wanting to limit traffic to just "g" and "a" and no "b" but would now like to set it back to the defaults but dummy me didn't write it down. Can someone send me a screen shot just tell me what the default setting should be?

Thanks Much!

Re: Default Transmit and Basic Rates for A dn G

From the CLI:

802.11a Basic Rates 6 12 24
802.11a Transmit Rates 6 9 12 18 24 36 48 54
802.11g Basic Rates 1 2
802.11g Transmit Rates 1 2 5 6 9 11 12 18 24 36 48 54

BTW - unless you are editing the default SSID (or you have deleted it), you can do a "show wlan ssid-profile default" to get this info.

Removing lower data rates

What is the recommended practice for removing lower (1 and 2 Mb) data rates on the 802.11g radios in order so as not to have clients connecting at those slower speeds and eating up airtime. Assuming that your AP density is such that clients should be able to connect at the higher rates.

The practice




The practice is that the basic rates are a subset of the transmit rates. If you only want to allow speeds 9 and up, you would select only the transmit rates of 9 and up, and the basic rates of 9 and 11. Once in a while, you will run into a client (an older client) that expects to have the basic rates of 1 and 2 in place, otherwise it will not connect.
