I am looking at a screen in the GUI of Top Talkers. What is the difference between "Valid" and "Interfering"?
I have a consultant that I wanted to make sure he was getting enough BW, and I changed his tag from "Interfering" to "Valid".

There is some clients that aruba tags as interfering.
Today found one of this clients and it was a laptop, that event being loged correctly to the network couldn't get an IP.
Why some clients are tagged as interfering?

With the Intrusion Detection/Protection feature, you can "Protect Valid Stations" which keeps "Valid" clients from roaming to "Interfering" access points. This is good if you have a business, or a school and you don't want any of your laptops roaming to neighboring access points. If a client authenticates with a captive portal, it is still considered interfering. It is assumed that if a client connects to your network with encryption, it is, more often than not, one of your clients. Guests who connect to your network, by that definition are NOT one of your clients, and will not be prevented from connecting to neighboring access points if you have the feature "Protect Valid Stations" turned on.
