Re: point client to specific access point

You can use MAC address ACLs to block or allow association to the access point.

AP(config)#access-list access-list-number

{deny | permit} source [source-wildcard]

AP(config)#dot11 association access-list access-list-number

Re: point client to specific access point

Hi BBxie,

thanks for reply, your reply very helpful.

here with another question which i am in doubt.

now, i am sitting in the room and inside the room only 1 Access Point which 3 - 5 meters away for me. but i dont understand why i cant associate to this access point , my laptop always surf by another access point which out of the room and either further than the ap in the room.

what do you think ? anyone can explain to me ... your reply will be highly appreciated.

regards,

Jackal

Re: point client to specific access point

there's many possibilities,you should provide more detailed information about your environment, for example: AP model/firmware version, laptop model/OS/wirless card driver, parameters configured in the AP and laptop.

Typically there're some possible reasons:

1. laptop wirless driver bug or compatibility issue with AP

2. No matter what reasons, if your laptop had already associated to the outside AP(for example, inside AP powered up later; there's some time, the inside AP lost connection to laptop), if the outside AP's signal had not dropped to a very poor strength level(roaming threshold), your laptop will not roam to a better signal inside AP

if you only want to associate to one AP such as performing a site survey, then change the ssid.

when you do this perform a site survey to fix problem 2
