Yes. It can provide 802.3af power to a device form its secondary LAN port, so long as the included PoE injector is used to power up the EnStationAC.

Saving and applying settings is a 3-step procedure:

1. Click on SAVE after making the settings changes.

 

2. Click on the CHANGES button located at the top portion of the graphical user interface (GUI) which will take you to a list of the settings changes.

 

3. Click on the APPLY button to finally save the settings.

 

This allows consolidation of changes to be applied on the AP, minimizing downtime.

All EnGenius Electron and Neutron Series Dual-Band access points.

RSSI Threshold allows the AP to kick a wireless client when it goes below the set RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) value. This prevents a common issue wherein a client device is still connected on an AP further away, displaying low signal status, even when the device is closer to another AP.

E.g. RSSI Threshold set to -75 dBm. When the client's RSSI drops to -76 dBm as it moves further away from the connected AP, the AP will kick the client to allow it to connect to another AP with better signal quality.

Layer 2 Isolation prevents communication between wired and wireless clients in the network. 

This prevents communication between wireless or wired subscribers even when they are on the same subnet.

When an installation of a wireless point to point bridge is designed and installed, it is generally thought that line of sight is required, but there is also a requirement for clearance of what is known as the Fresnel Zone. Mount the antennas/APs 4-8 ft. above roof/trees between the locations.

The band steering feature encourages dual-band-capable clients to stay on the 5 GHz band on dual-band APs. This ability frees up resources on the 2.4 GHz band for single-band clients.

Dual-band capable wireless clients may see even greater bandwidth improvements because the band steering feature automatically selects between 80MHz, 40 MHz or 20 MHz channels in 802.11n networks.

Band steering should work with and without local probe response enabled. The Access Point has the logic to "hide" from 5GHz-capable clients that are asking to connect on the 2.4GHz band. However, if local probe responses are disabled, allowing persistent 2.4GHz clients to associate on 2.4GHz bands even after being identified as 5GHz may not work.

Essentially this is where the access point hears a request from a client device to associate on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, and steers the client by responding only to the 5GHz association request and not the 2.4 GHz request. It reduces co-channel interference and frees up 2.4GHz, creating a better overall distribution of users for bandwidth availability.

  • Prefer-5GHz
  • Force-5GHz
  • Band Balance
