Is there a way to increase the wireless signal strength through Aerohive Hive Manager?
There is a wall between the offices and people don't get a good signal. It is an AP121(HiveOS 6.1r6c.1794)and when I look at the wireless signal bar on the user's laptop, it shows only 1-2 bars.
If there is a way in Aerohive Hive Manager, what is the recommended signal and where should I go and adjust it?
Don't forget that it takes two to tango here - the client needs to talk back to the AP too.
You also want this to be at a 'healthy' data rate rather than scraping around at the lowest data rates that are offered.
You do need to consider capacity rather than just coverage, what rate over range is achievable in the environment.
Did you have a predictive site survey and a subsequent passive survey done to design the deployment?
I understand your points.
there are 5 users in 2 offices but there is only one AP in that area which is actully in another room.
the users have to get the signal from the AP but there are walls and walls. on the laptops, the wireless adapters are set for the best but when I see the signal bars are only a couple so they have to use a cable normally and now they want me to do something about it.
I don't think the data rate is low or it is somehow set at the lowerst data rates because when they go to the office where the AP is. The issue is gone. no problem to use.
1. there was a site survey before me but I think it was done poorly
2. have not done the predictive site survey on my own. plz, recommend me one program that I can use if you know any.
3. the power(dBm) of AP is set at auto I think I will chnage it to 20(highest). and see if it is better.
