When is a rogue an issue?

I have a WLC managed by WCS in an Arena Environment. During events we frequently notice rogue AP's which I believe may be causing interference with our devices. How can I tell if a rogue is an issue of concern because I usually look at the amount of dBi it puts out, if they are at -70, -80, or -90 dBi then I consider them a non-issue. Am I correct in my assesment, do I need to be concerned about a rogue if it drops to -60, -50, or even -40 dBi or am I looking at this all wrong?


Re: When is a rogue an issue?

The rouge AP timeout settings sets after how many minutes it would generate an alert message if a rouge AP is detected. If you change this setting to 0,you would not see the alert messages on the logs.A cleaner implementation of rogue client suppression would send a targeted de-authentication & then prevent future associations from that client.

Re: When is a rogue an issue?

Under the WLC | Wireless| 802.11b/g Global Parameters (802.11a too) | Auto RF Dynamic Channel Assignment Algorithm

do you have "Avoid Foreign AP Interference" checked or not?

Disabling it will make RRM ignore the interference. Read the help file under WLC web gui for more details
