Nominal max for wifi is usually around 100m, but you'll never achieve that in practice. Coverage areas really depend on your environment and client use cases.

Yup, it's not particularly helpful to know this information as it is so environmentally specific.

Hello Dee,

You can use the free planning tool in the hivemanager to see if you have enough coverage (which is an estimate), or if  you can do a onsite survey with a tool like airmagnet, Ekahau..etc..
Every environment is different, the're no fixed values with the minimum and maximum coverage for an AP121.

With regards,
