Re: NV2 sync issues and solutions

To me, the whole point would be to manage the airtime, so multiple frequencies, but a big boss decided who gets which time slot overall.

Hi there I would like some clarification please. I was trained that when you setup WDS, and you have the 2 AP's close to one another, they would not be interference for one another, but 'boost' the signal. So noise becomes signal, if I understand it correctly. My question is, does this apply to Caps...

Re: Virtual AP and NV2

Hi

Its quite simple really. We have a site with multiple sectors, and multiple SSID's. So if one sector fails, you can simply add the Virtual AP with the SSID, and the IP to OSPF, and everybody runs again. You then have ample time to go and replace the faulty unit, withou affecting your customers.
