Anybody have any idea about these two little queries?
Firstly, using an AP350 carrier test. On my test (both 11.23 and 11.10 code) the right hand chart measures the noise in negative dbm. I'm guessing less is better (i.e. more stars in the chart is better). What confuses me is that the following link shows the noise as a percentage in the chart. Anybody know if you have to change a setting to get the percent value, and if you do, is 100% bad and -10% good?
Secondly, a client associated to an AP is "timed out due to inactivity", I guess after a certain amount of time when no data (unicast only perhaps?) is passed from it. Does anybody know what this timeout is, and if you can manipulate it? In addition, has anybody seen problems with LEAP as a direct result of this timeout? (e.g. of message : "2002/10/07 16:55:40 (Info): Deauthenticating [XXX]XXXXXXXXXXXX, reason "Inactivity")
I'm probably not explaining myself very well. If I look at the carrier tests (all codes look the same), the left chart shows "carrier busy" as a percentage which is fine. The right chart shows "noise" as a negative dbm reading, but the if you look at the URL I listed before, the chart shows the "noise" as a negative percentage. I suspect this is just a documentation error on Cisco's part, but does anybody know for sure?
On the timeout thing, I don't think changing the beaconing settings will help, as the client cards are in constant awake mode.
