Band-steering parameter in client-match.

I need help to understand better the two band-steering parameters in client-match.

Re: Band-steering parameter in client-match.

Hi Victor, 

 

Thank you. Then how reducing the paramter Band steering g-max signal
(dbm) from -45 dbm to -10 dbm Prevents users from getting
stuck on 2.4G Hz in HD environment ? .
