Interference

Hi,

station A is on channel 36 associated to an AP A and station B associated to AP B 

if station A hear station B on at -82dBm,it will wait ?

 

How does station A understand station B is sending and receiving data ? 

Thanks

Re: Interference

Wi-Fi using something called carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (or CSMA/CA for short) to try to avoid more than one client "speaking" at a time.
