Force EIRP and Channel for 802.11a .

Hi everyone,

 

For a site survey, we want to be able to force a Channel and a signal force.

 

It work perfectly for me with the 802.11g in those section :

 

RF Management

   802.11g radio profile

      Transmit EIRP : 15 (Exemple)

      Channel : 10 (Exemple)

 

RF Management

   802.11g radio profile

      Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) Profile

         Assignement : Disable

 

Then 1-2 minutes after, in the dash board, I can see that the Channel et EIRP are force.

 

But when I do the same for 802.11a (in the 802.11a radio profile of course), it doesn't work. The value that I want is :

 

EIRP : 15

Channel :140

 

Anyone have an idea on that ?

 

Thanks.

Is channel 140 allowed on your regulatory domain for that access point?

Hello,

 

I was just wondering how the transmit EIRP in the radio profile and Min/Max Tx EIRP settings relate?  For example - Does the Transmit EIRP setting in the radio profile takes precedence over the Min/Max Tx EIRP setting in the ARM profile?  When would you use the setting in the radio profile?

 

Thanks in advance.

The TX EIRP in the radio profile is used when:

 

- The Access point is fresh out the box and just contacted the controller (this will be the initial power)

- The ARM setting is to None.
