I have an AP17 pointing directly at a Ring floodlight camera that's approximately 50 feet away. For a week the client connected to the AP with an RSSI of -50 to -54db.
I noticed the Ring was not transmitting video again. Reviewing its connection on the Aruba app, I now see it's connecting to an AP22 that's on the opposite side of my house, (another 30+ feet) with multiple walls between the AP and the Ring.
AP17 is now transmitting at "low" power, and the AP22 at "very high". We need to either be able to ban clients from an AP, or allow power levels on APs to be controlled.
Finally, why am I having to disable 802.11ax in order for clients to maintain stable connections?!? If 802.11ax is enabled, clients such as my Google Minis randomly disconnect. The app and portal say they are connected, but devices don't get an IP from my DHCP server.
ZERO issues with this when I ran UniFi APs. Support was nearly useless helping troubleshoot this. They had me remove and readopt my APs, create new SSIDs, not use VLAN. It was my tinkering the discovered disabling 802.11ax eliminated the issue.
What is the point of buying 802.11ax APs if I have to disable WPA3 and WiFi 6 protocols?
Still have issues with devices not roaming to a closer AP and it appears to be a power level issue. AP17, pointed away from the house will grab a device as it roams into range when I return home. The clients won't roam to closer APs that are indoors, with multiple walls between the client and the AP17. The AP is broadcasting at "high" or "very high"
We need to have the ability adjust power levels or RSSI levels to push clients to appropriate APs.
