WLC4400 controller and AP power level


I have a warehouse with 16 AP1252,standard antennas. They are controlled by 2 x 4402 controllers.

AT this moment only 13 clients are coonnected.

All AP's are at power level 1 and i have to some spots with poor connection.

I have tryed to ajust the Coverage Threshold values. Now they are -60db and Min Failed Client Count per AP set to 1.

All AP's are still at powerlevel 1.

How do i get some more "aggressive" power settings ?

What does the "Coverage exception level per AP" parameter do?

Re: WLC4400 controller and AP power level

You are already at maximum tx power. If you have poor coverage when you walk around certain areas, then most likely you will need to add ap's or move the current ap's around. You can try to change the antennas to a higher gain to see if that give you the extra coverage. You also have to look at what the client can transmit at so you don't get one way communication.
