Band Balancing

Band balancing attempts to balance the client load on radios by distributing clients between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. This feature is disabled by default. To balance the number of clients connecting to the two radios on an AP, the AP encourages dual-band clients to connect to the 5 GHz band when the configured percentage threshold is reached.

To enable Band Balancing, select the check box next to Percent of clients on 2.4 GHz radio, and enter a value in the % field, which denotes the threshold above which dual-band clients will be encouraged to connect to the 5 GHz radio rather than the 2.4 GHz radio.

Note: When enabled globally here, this feature will be applied to all WLANs by default. To disable Band Balancing for a specific WLAN, edit the Radio Control Settings for the WLAN using the WLAN Advanced Options.
