Automatic AP Upgrade The automatic AP upgrade features is enabled by default. It allows an AP’s firmware to be automatically upgraded by the controller when the AP joins the WLAN. An AP cannot provide service (and consequently be part of the WLAN) if its firmware is at a different level than that of the controller. […]
Configure Gain for External Antennas The total power that an AP produces must not exceed 30dbi; this number includes any antenna gain. Therefore, if an antenna produces 2dbi, the radio can produce 28dbi. FortiWLC (SD) automatically sets antenna gain; in the case of an AP400, it assumes an antenna with 5dbi and therefore sets the […]
When APs are in a Virtualization All APs on the same channel in a Virtualization must have the same setting for these values: RF-Mode Channel Width N-only Mode Channel and MIMO mode
Had my surgery….didn’t go to well…
Supported Modes of Operation for APs AP332/AP400/AP832 and AP1000 with two radios can have both set to 5.0 GHz, but both radios cannot be set to 2.4 GHz. If you want to use both radios on 2.4 GHz, put the radios on separate channels. AP1000 radios default to the following bands: AP Model Radio 1 […]
Replacing Access Points You can replace APs in one of the following conditions: If you have a faulty AP, you can replace that with a new AP of the same model as the faulty AP. Migrate from an older AP model to a newer AP model. Before Replacing Access Points The following are important points […]
Roaming Across Controllers (RAC) Clients can roam between access points connected to two different controllers in same subnet or different subnets. FortiWLC (SD) allows you to specify static or dynamic roaming. Things to consider before enabling RAC IP PREFIX validation has to be OFF in the RAC enabled ESS profile. RAC can be enabled on […]
Decided to make a video discussing my lack of videos and the things we have coming down the pipe. Pretty stoked about them and excited to get you guys some fresh content. Keep an eye out for more videos as I am making them a priority now.
