My goal is I think fairly strait forward:
- CRS328-24P-4S+ (current stable firmware 6.48)
- 2 x Audience as CAP (current stable firmware 6.48)
- Enumerate channels:
- 2.4Ghz: 20Mhz channels 1,6,11 no extensions
- 5Ghz: 80Mhz channels 5180,5260,5500,5580,5660,5745 with Ceee extension
- Single SSID, handoff between CAPs (potentially I need to add a rule for signal strength to push clients off?)
- Steering towards 5Ghz if possible (Ubiquiti called this "band steering")
- CAP auto provision and auto select non-conflicting channels
I have everything working in the setup except that the audience CAPs select the same exact channels each time they boot up, they do not re-select non-conflicting channels after 1 hour. I'd certainly like to auto provision if I can because I may in the future add another CAP. This is in a large home far away from other homes so the spectrum is clear.
Realizing that the advice is often times to do an actual spectrum plan, I'm curious about doing manual assignment of channel sets to each CAP as well (this would be a good thing to have explained). I had found this gist which looks like it would be useful if you were going to manually assign channels to each CAP.
This is my current configuration:
Since this is my first real post on the forums it would also be nice if someone could point out anything that I might not be asking that I should be asking.
