On a large site sometimes it may be needed to limit certain wired Access Points to only the 5ghz band if the 2.4ghz band has interference from external wi-fi networks. This guide shows how to control the wi-fi bands used with wired (non mesh) multi Access Point setups.
Ensure that Group-wide SSID settings are enabled within Incontrol:
In the below example, for a large site with four Access Points, we want to configure only AP East to use only the 5ghz wi-fi band :
Tags used for the above configuration :
- All dual band SSID profiles have Device Selection=All , except #star , which is Access point East.
- All 5ghz only SSID profiles are tagged only with #star (Access point East)
