Hidden Node - RTS/CTS Question

How do you enable or start using RTS/CTS. The layout of my network is long hallways with rooms on either side with AP's in hall and Nodes in the rooms off the hallway. I am sure I am running into the Hidden node problem but don't know how to enable my clients and/or AP's to start using RTS/CTS.

The Clients are Dell True Mobile and CB21AG and the AP's are 1200's. For some reason I remember there was a setting in the older cisco cards but don't seem to find it in the latest CB21AG software.

Any information on going this way would be great.

Re: Hidden Node - RTS/CTS Question

Set the RTS Threshold on the AP.... as per Cisco's documentation

RTS Threshold

This setting determines the packet size at which the device issues a request to send (RTS) before sending the packet. A low RTS Threshold setting can be useful in areas where many client devices are associating with the access point or in areas where the clients are far apart and can detect only the access point and not each other.
