2 APs in 1 location


I am at a site using wireless IP phones. I need to have 2 APs in 1 location. I have tried to set 2 APs with different channels but same signal strength. This did not work well cause when the wireless phone comes into an area where the signal strengths of the 2 APs are close, it just bounce between the 2 APs and thus the phone conversation lost.

I've also tried to have different signal strength for these 2 APs. Still the same situation occurs.

How can I configure the 2 APs such that they can co-exist together & thus support more users?

Re: 2 APs in 1 location

Try positioning the APs further apart. If you need to cover an area with 2 APs, it's better to have them on either side of the area.

If they're further apart, the strength at a client should differ enough to prevent most association flapping.

Have you tried setting up one AP as the root and one as a Repeater?
