Limiting the number of clients

You might want to prevent overloading of your access point by limiting the number of clients who can associate with it at the same time. Limits can be applied per SSID, per AP, or per radio.

To limit the number of clients per SSID – GUI

  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > SSID and edit your SSID.
  2. Turn on Maximum Clients and enter the maximum number of clients in Limit Concurrent WiFi Clients.

To limit the number of clients per AP- CLI

Edit the wtp-profile (FortiAP profile), like this:

config wireless-controller wtp-profile edit “FAP221C-default” set max-clients 30

end

To limit the number of clients per radio – CLI

Edit the wtp-profile (FortiAP profile), like this:

config wireless-controller wtp-profile edit “FAP221C-default” config radio-1 set max-clients 10

end config radio-2 set max-clients 30

end

end
