Hi, I am wondering how you guys setup 5 and 2G wifi over CAPsMAN. What works best?
As I saw, there are two or three possible options, but both have some negatives:
1. 5G and 2G with same SSID name and some people also reduce 2G transmit power -7dBi below 5G transmit power to force device choose 5G if it have 5G wifi NIC
Problem, some devices (samsung TV, some laptops) just dont want choose 5G even if 2G transmit power is low. And you can not lower 2G power trasmit too much as some 2G clients loosing signal after ...
So it works for new devices, but some still have problem to prefer 5G over 2G.
2. have different SSID for 2G and 5G like network and network 5G or network FAST and connect just to 5G
Problem, you have two network - you have to both save into all devices. If you save only 5G and 5G went down, device donest connect automatically to 2G - as you have to setup another SSID again (if you dont save both from the begining)
3. In CAPsMAN access list, select for device interface of closes 5G CAP
Problem, roaming is gone, device connect only to this CAP. When CAP interface dynamic (as best practise) it disapear after you re-provision CAP.
Create Interface list and add all 5G interfaces into this list? same problem, it will remove CAP from interface list after you re-provision CAP
Plus you bound client to 5G only again as in 2 scenario.
So how to do it best?
Thanks for ideas.
