I want to use bandsteering on my MR42 to make fully use of the 5GHz band.
But I find it too aggressive when compared to my other AP, which steers the clients to 5GHz only when the signal is good enough. The MR42 steers the clients to 5GHz independent of the signal strength, which results in a lot of disconnects and bad Wi-Fi experience.
Quote from the knowledge-base: Band steering also functions completely irrespective of the strength of the signal. Even if the signal strength on the 5GHz band is much weaker than on the 2.4GHz band, the AP will only respond to probe requests on the 5GHz band (as long as the client has been seen on that band in the last 60 seconds).
I understand that this is a choice of Meraki so to change this choice would (maybe) too much to ask. Is there a workaround or am I stuck with the option ''Dual Band Operation''?
