Article ID: 32917679

Symptom

Changing the Access Port dBm setting through the Wireless Switch Policy does not work. Changes made to the Access Port dBm setting through the Wireless Switch Policy do not take affect. The dBm setting on Access Ports that have already been adopted does not change when the dBm is adjusted through the Wireless Switch Policy.

Facts

WS5000

Resolution

Changes made to the Access Port dBm setting through the Wireless Switch Policy will not affect Access Ports that have already been adopted by the switch.  The adjusted Wireless Switch Policy dBm setting will only be applied to Access Ports that are adopted after the dBm level has been adjusted.

To configure the dBm level through the Wireless Switch Policy
  1. Select Modify>Wireless Switch>Existing Policy through the WS5000 GUI.
  2. Select the Wireless Switch Policy you wish to edit.  Four tabs representing each Access Port type (802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11a, 802.11FH) will be displayed.
  3. Select the tab for the desired Access Port and adjust the dBm to the desired level.
  4. Click Save to apply the setting. 
  5. Any Access Ports adopted after this will have the new adjusted dBm level.
