We have set up 6 WAP321 and the goal is to deploy W-LAN throughout the whole building.
The setup for now is as follows
- Each access point is connected with the same switch through LAN
- Each AP has the same SSID
- No wireless security (= WAP2 disabled), we have a proxy server which does authentication
- Each AP has a static IP
- Each AP has a fixed, non overlapping channel (wireless frequency) assigned
The APs are NOT set up as a cluster.
Is there any advantage regarding signal quality, handovers, speed, bandwidth ... if we combine the APs into a single cluster (Single Point Setup)?
Or is the only advantage that it simplifies the management of the APs?
