I have a network where the AP locations are designed for 2.4G. Therefore there are quite a few areas with poor 5G coverage.
I try to make my clients guided back to the 2.4G channels in these locations.Would you advise me how to set up a rule / config telling the AP-s if the 5G probes with the client show very low quality (say the signal of the 5G channel at the client side is lower than -70dBm) THEN try to guide the client to the stronger 2.4G radio? I have done quite a bit of testing (combination of Band steering, Client Match, RSSI levels, separate Radio Power Levels for 2.4 and 5G etc.)What I managed to achieve so far was the following: * clients moving to the good reception areas are switching over to 5G nicely. (Making the 2.4 less crowded.)* clients moving to the low reception areas (of the same AP) sticking to the 5G radio even if they hardly able to get any packets (ping times in the range 1000-2500) so that they have poor reception * if the user manually turns off-on the radio (or changes AP) the client is picking up the 2.4G wisely but not automaticallyThe system is on Instant 8.6.xxxx level and I wish to use one single SSID.
