Model: EAP245  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 2.21.0

Hey there,

 

just wanna ask, if there is a setting, where I can prevent certain client from connecting to a specific access point.

 

I don't know why, but some clients always do connect to an accesspoint that is far away, even if there is an accesspoint that is in very near distance.

Result is a very weak connection speed.

 

I know this feature from many of my old access points, that I can prevent clients from connecting with it.

 

The only setting I found on omada controller or EAP245 itself is to prevent clients (MAC addresses) from connecting to SSIDs

@HKBlizzard,

 

you could set a RSSI Threshold in an EAP's configuration menu (under »Advanced« → »Load Balancing«) to avoid clients with a weak signal to connect to an EAP.

 

OTOH to restrict access for specific clients to a certain EAP you can add an unqiue SSID and use this for the clients in question.

@R1D2 

 

thanks for the tip. The trick with the RSSI Threshold solved the problem for me.

But what I don't understand is, why the device didn't connect to the more powerfull EAP by itself.

 

Now the device (Ring video doorbell 3) has an RSSI of -57dBm whereas it had an RSSI of -70dBm when it was connected to the other (wrong one) EAP.

That's something only the manufacturer of the doorbell can answer.
