    I am running 8.10. When I look at wi-fi clients from signal quality' perspective I see that majority of my clients are in the SNR range of 21-35. Which is 'Fair' quality. I was expecting most of my clients to be in SNR 36 + range. 

    But when I look at clients from 'Health' perspective most of the are in 'Good' category. 

    Is this something I should look at to fix or is it normal? The SNR is bothering me and I am thinking the majority should be in Green SNR range. What needs to be checked/fixed? What is the 'Unknown' in the SNR.

    If you aren't having performance issues, don't bother.  If you are, you'll want to do an active survey of the location to determine the RF coverage/density and make any necessary design changes.

    Hello there.

    • The SNR value is signal-to-noise ratio., mean the signal level (in dBm) minus the noise level (in dBm).
    • SNR value in range of 21-35 mean your client will be okey, have about 2 to 4 wifi bar in the wifi icon (below 25 wil be lag).
    • I think this is normal, but you can improve it by : 
      • Move the AP far from other Wifi system AP.
      • Move the AP far from television, refrigerator, or other electronic devices.
      • Use the Band steering funtion to automatically connects your devices to the 5Ghz signal because 2.4ghz signal is easy to be interfered.
