Temporal Diversity and Maximum Retries using CLI
When clients are not responding to 802.11 packets, IAPs can attempt only 2 hardware retries. Starting Instant 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206, a new parameter called Temporal Diversity(disabled by default) is introduced to attempt more number of retries. When this knob is enabled, IAPs can additionally perform software retires after 2 failed attempts of hardware retries. The max-retries parameter indicates the maximum number of software attempts the IAP performs when clients are not responding to 802.11 packets. By default, the IAP attempts a maximum of eight retries when clients are not responding to 802.11 packets with temporal diversity enabled.
Configuration is only supported from CLI and can be configured under SSID profile.
