I have a problem whereby a particular wireless client is choosing to associate with the root bridge rather than with a nearer non-root AP which has a much stronger signal. As a result, the client is experiencing dropouts due to the poor signal to the root.
This is apparently a problem with the specific client (which is integrated into a vehicle telemetry system) and the vendor is entirely unhelpful with the issue.
Is there a way to block client association by MAC address (or some other means) on a 350 bridge? I need to do this to prevent the dodgy client from associating with the root bridge.
In your network setup, I can see no wireless clients are needed to be associated to the 350 bridge and all wireless clients needs to be associated to the 1400AP. If this is correct, why dont you modify the role of 350 bridge?.
I meant why dont you modify the root bridge with client association role of 350 bridge to non-client asspciation role?. I think this is possible in 350 bridge. You can configure your 350 bridge in "Bridge-only" mode which will not allow any clients to associate to it.
For this, the 350 bridge should be in non-root bridge mode.
Unfortunately I don't think I can change the role of the 350 because it needs to be the root - it is in a high location, on the wired network and number of other bridges need to associate with it.
A root without client association mode would be ideal, but this doesn't exist. Actually, what would be ideal would be for the client card vendor to fix their hardware/drivers, but it seems that isn't going to happen.
