Client Management

The band steering settings for Wi-Fi networks can be found under Wireless LAN > Client Management.

Active profile
Here you select the profile with the settings for the band-steering module.
Steering is based on the load on the medium and the interference detected on the current channel and is preferably performed with 802.11v. If the client does not support 802.11v, steering is induced by deliberately disassociating the client. Steering can be performed before association and, if necessary, once the client is already associated. This is the recommended profile.
No steering is performed. The client decides independently which frequency band to use.
Steering is performed before the client associates by deliberately withholding probe responses. Regardless of the load, the 5 GHz band is always preferred.
