Re: How to correctly configure airtime fairness

Ok from I understand we can have 3 SSID being broadcasted but what it matters is how many users we have connecting at the same time, in addition to what type of connection (n/a/b/g). If we have a mixed of clients then it make sense to allow more time for n clients to transmit so b clients does not starve air time from other users. I was just wondering if we can tell the access point to listen more to clients connecting to a specific SSID than Guest. If we have 10 clients connecting to the Access Point which 3 are only guest and 7 are corporate clients, then I wanted the Access Point to allow corporate clients to transmit and hold the connection to guest only after corporate clients finish transmitting sort of priority queuing in the air. If I restrict the bandwidth for the guest role would it help to prevent guest users for consuming more air time than corporate users?

Theoretically, yes.

 

You are still restricted to the aggregate throughput, however.
