Wireless Access Point too close?
Posted on 2014-01-15
This probably is an easy question. I just want to know If you have 2 AP's close together about 12 feet's apart, which of the access points will reduces the transmission power?
All access points are Cisco LAP and are control by a Cisco wireless controller. The reason I am asking is because, in the office we have one AP that does not cover the entire room do to a very thick wall that separate the room(beam). I am scare to put another AP on the other side of the room which is only 12 feet's away, because it might be too close, and the other AP might reduce the power transmission affecting the "good side ".
For the the record, the good side receives 5 signal bars and the bad side, which is about 12 feets only get 2 bars.
What do you experts adivce?
