Question

What Are the Antenna Correction and Power Level Settings on the WS5000 for?

Answer

The WS5000 witch has an option for changing the power level and Antenna Correction for an AP (access point or access port).
By turning the power down, the range of the AP can be limited.  This is useful if there are many AP’s in an area that has high traffic.  By lowering the power, multiple AP’s can be placed near each other with little or no interference.  
The Antenna Correction can be used if the AP has an external antenna.  If the DBI for the external antenna is put in then the power level for the AP will be automatically adjusted.
