Configuring 5 GHz for Backbone on Aruba IAP 274

Hi All,

 

This is first time for me to configuring IAP 274 for Backbone between Building A and B. 

I already configured and the connection is running well, but why my highest speed only 300 Mbps ? thats mean the connection running on 2.4 GHz right ? so what should i do to force the connection become 5 GHz on IAP 274 ???

 

Kindly need your help.

 

Thank you in advance

How far apart are the access points?

Where are you getting the 300M number from?  You can only mesh on 5ghz using instant, so you are using 5ghz.

I used PRTG software for testing . And I got it.
How can I make sure the connection on 5GHz ???

For 120 meters that performance is good.  There are many other factors like reflections, distance, possible interference that would reduce throughput.  Instant ONLY uses 5ghz for mesh, so there is nothing to check.

You can log in to the CLI (your two mesh IAPs) and from each side run 'show ap mesh link' and post the ouput here.
