How does RB client choose between various hidden EAP access points

Wed Apr 20, 2016 9:26 am


I have several Ubiquiti NanoStation M5 setup in AP mode, EAP, and hidden SSID. The RB912s are setup as clients, and they are free to connect to any M5.

I'm seeing some RBs connecting to the best M5 based on their location, but then another RB right next to them will connect to an M5 on the other side of the network. Signal to the "good" M5 is around -70dBm, whereas to the "bad" one is -88dBm.

Since there are no beacons with SSID information, my question is on what logic does the RB follow to connect? Does it choose the first signal it finds, regardless of RSSI?
