Scanning intervals can be configured on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios independently.
- Run a background scan on the 2.4 GHz radio every [ ]: Select this
check box enter the time interval (1~65535 seconds, default is 20) that you want to set between
- Run a background scan on the 5 GHz radio every [ ]: Select this check
box enter the time interval (1~65535 seconds, default is 20) that you want to set between each
Note: If you want to disable Background Scanning, clear the check box; this should result in a
minor increase in AP performance, but removes the detection of rogue APs. You can also decrease
the scan frequency, as less frequent scanning improves overall AP performance.
Note: You can also disable Background Scanning on a per-WLAN basis from the Dashboard >
Wi-Fi Networks screen. To disable scanning for a particular WLAN, click the
Edit link next to the WLAN for which you want to disable scanning, open
Advanced Options, select the Radio Control tab,
and click the check box next to Disable Background Scanning.
To see whether Background Scanning is enabled or disabled for a particular WLAN, click the
click here link at the bottom of the page.
