Effects of disabling 802.11b data rates

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question. If I disable the 802.11b data rates on my access point the cell would obviously shrink somewhat. Can this loss be overcome by increasing the power on the AP either manually or letting an auto algorithm kick in like RRM? Does anyone know how much more power I would need roughly? Understand this would depend on the environment.

Thanks

Disabling the 802.11b data-rates is recommended nowadays. You won't really see much of a difference in reality. Just let TPC and RRM do its thing.
