Pick an AP to associate with

Postby Guest » Fri Oct 26, 2001 10:09 am

Being able to pick which AP on the list to associate with (instead of automatically associating with the strongest one) from the GUI would greatly ease the admin's task of tracking down or identifying those APs with lower signal strength.

Thanks, John

If you're trying to find the AP, then use the 'directional capabilities' of your machine and watch the SNR number in NetStumbler. Your laptop probably picks the signal up much stronger in the direction that the antenna is pointing (I don't think this is as much a directional antenna as it is that the laptops blocks the signal...just my guess). Then you can rotate yourself till the SNR gets higher then more toward the signal....if it continues to get higher, you're moving the right direction.
