signal coverage not over -30 dBm

  • Updated 1 month ago
We have a VSZ with AP310 in all locations.
In 1 location I have poor WiFi and I also see that all AP310 have no more than -30 dBm.
At other locations with also AP310 I easily achieve the -60 dBm.

The locations concern primary schools and no details.
Truly disturbing factors.

Does anyone know how I can change the dBm?

Hi Sander,

Please can you add more detail.

-30dBm RSSI is an extremely high signal level.  The closer to 0dBm when using negative figures = a stronger signal.  E.g. -70dBm is a weaker RSSI than -60dBm. -50dBm is a stronger RSSI than -55dbM.

I recommend you check the AP TX power configuration in the SZ, as this can be reduced by over 10dB. Bear in mind that each 3dB is half or double the TX power.  E.g. 13dB is twice the power of 10dB.

Thanks,
Darrel.

Hi Sander,

Edit the AP Zone or AP group or specific AP to check/modify it's TX power.

By default all APs run with full TX power.
