I just deployed a few AP1242 in my office environment.
I've set them to use the same SSID and encryption (WPA2).
I would like to know can I set load balancing on the APs? E.g. there are 30 users at the office and I installed 2 APs in the area, is there anyway the AP will auto loan balance between themselves, taking 15 users each?
There really is no load balancing feature with Autonomous AP's. But you can use this;
To allow only so many users to associate to an AP at one time you can use the max-Associations command.
This example shows how to:
Name an SSID
Configure the SSID for RADIUS accounting
Set the maximum number of client devices that can associate using this SSID to 15
Assign the SSID to a VLAN
AP# configure terminal
AP(config)# interface dot11radio 0
AP(config-if)# ssid batman
AP(config-ssid)# accounting accounting-method-list
AP(config-ssid)# max-associations 15
AP(config-ssid)# vlan 3762
From this doc;
To find out how many users are associated to an AP, this example shows how to display all client devices associated with the access point:
AP# show dot11 associations client
Hope this helps!
