Hi,

I have 10 APs (105 model) in virtual controller enviroment.On a virtual controller dashboard i found many time that some APs showed high channel utilization and at that time users of same APs cannot access intranet/internet resources.I have attached image herewith.

You can try:

- Turning on "Broadcast Filter All" on all of your SSIDs
- Using fewer SSIDs
- Turning down the maximum transmit power in the ARM profile.

On that same screen, you can try changing your 2.4 ghz transmit rate to 11 and see if it helps.

Re: AP 105 high channel utilization

Yes. That is separate from the ARM maximum transmit power that I mentioned before.

How many access points do you have and what type?

Re: AP 105 high channel utilization

You can try also increasing the 5ghz minimum rate, as well, but you should have less issues on the 5ghz and should not have to do that usually.

Re: AP 105 high channel utilization

If those steps do not help, in addition, you can set the ARM minimum and maximum transmit power both to 12 and see if it helps:

You would then need to check to make sure you don't have any coverage holes after that.
