We're in the process of installing a WLAN for use with Ekahau B4 tags for messaging and general location tracking. I'm looking for some people that had experience with these things for some info on any configuration parameters I should be careful about. I have also written to Ekahau.
I have found an older best practice guide from Ruckus but it is old and there might be some newer recommendations. http://goo.gl/QLeFPd
What I would like to know is:
- We will use channels 1, 6 & 11 only but should I disable background scanning. I was thinking on living it on, but not use CF
- We will use B4 are 11bgn, but b is getting deprecated and I'm wondering if disabling 11b completely is a good idea?
- If disabling 11b isn't a good idea can higher basic rates be implemented? For example can the lowest rate be 5.5Mbps instead of 1 or 2Mbps?
- Anything else to look for?
