Overlapping channels

Hi, if I am using overlapping channels, AP 1 using channel 11, AP 2 using channel 12, near to each other, do I get interference? If that's the case, how can they perform load balancing? Tks.

Re: Overlapping channels

If you are using channels that are close to each other, then you can get interference if the APs are in radio range of each other. You should try to use channels 1, 6, and 11 where possible, as these channels do not overlap. As far as load balancing and communication between APs, Aironet access points do not communicate with each other across the RF, they use the Ethernet connection for that.
