We are deploying a new wireless network for guest users of private lounges at airports, using a 5508 WLC and 3501 AP’s. The SSID uses open L2 authentication with a web auth passthrough login splash page.
We require preventing people outside these private areas to connect to the SSID, and we would like to do so by only allowing clients to connect if they exceeed the minimum RSSI guaranteed in the private areas (i.e. prevent connections below a certain level, such as -70dB). We tried to configure this by settings several parameters, for example the “Minimum RSSI” under “Client Roaming” without achieving the desired effect.
Can a minimum RSSI be set up so clients would not connect unless they receive the minimum specified signal level? If so, can anyone please advise how to set this up?
Many thanks in advance for your expert advise…
