Band steering questions

Recommended Posts

If the AP is set to "Force 5GHz", dual band clients will be able to connect to the 5GHz signal only. But when set to "Prefer 5GHz" a certain threshold will be set and if the  if the 5GHz signal meets or exceeds the set threshold, the client will connect to the 5GHz band.

Pls also take note that band steering only defines the action when a wireless client first associates with the AP, and the wireless client must be in both 2.4G & 5G coverage zone when authenticating with the AP for the band steering algorithm to take effect.

Mike's description is different from what I saw in 

Which one is correct?
