Local probe request threshold

Hi,

I have a question about ArubaOS 3.3 for IAP. 

While I'm configurationg a new network (using advanced option at the first step of wizard) I can set a parameter "Local probe request threshold". If I'll put there "15", the clients should not be able to connect  to the network if signal level at client is less then 15 dBm?

Re: Local probe request threshold

This is only effective if you hidden the SSID , since some devices will still attach to the AP since its broadcasting the SSID (beacons)

Thank you

Also based on Aruba best practices you should set this up to a value of 25 to get better results

This is a good article:

Re: Local probe request threshold

Ok, so I'd like to query about next: how can I automatically disconnect clients,which have low parameter "signal/SNR"?

 

Re: Local probe request threshold

 

You won't be able to do that.

 

Question is what are you trying to accomplish ?

 

If you disconnect clients that way the wireless connection experience may will not be a good one.

Thank you
