Forcing Mesh AP to join a particular parent

Answered Question
Aug 3rd, 2009

Hi there;

I have a setup of 10 1522 APs (4 RAPs and 6 MAPs). Two of them (One RAP and one MAP) are placed bit away from the remaining ones. The two remote APs function correctly as desired (the remote MAP selects nearest RAP as parent) but when the RAP looses its ethernet connection due to wired network failure; the MAP joins a remote RAP with very low SNR and stays at it even when the desired RAP comes up again.

Is there any way we can set a priority that the MAP joins intended RAP as soon as it comes alive again?

Thanks,

I have this problem too.

The 1520's don't currently support background scanning. The result of this is the condition you described. Bug CSCsw28993 was filed to have background scanning added to the 1520's.
