I'm curious about the results in the image below.
Two customers on the sector currently having intermittent troubles. Results of eDetect match up, with two units whose MACs end in :2B and :D3 being them. (:E1 is affected too, but only gets used a few minutes a day on average)
How can the SM see an interfering signal at 29dB STRONGER than its AP, and still function at all, let alone MCS-12?? Is it not usually seeing anything from the wifi router except beacons or something?
While the unit is at MCS12 when screenshot was taken, it does fluctuate constantly - but rarely below MCS-9, at least in the 'Monitor->Wireless' view.
The 'fix' is in progress as I type, we're reaching out to those two customers and advising them that their own router is interfering, and that getting it on channel 6 or 11 will fix their problems. (and their neighbors!) (already confirmed that 'belkin.e9e' is owned by customer at :2B, am confident that 'belkin.3fd' and other MACs with that SSID [two Nintendo MACs come up sometimes with that name] are located at :D3 customer's premises)
Separately, I wanted to suggest that it would be really useful if we got names along with 'Device MAC'.
Finally, wanted to ask what meaning the MCS holds for the AP itself, last in the list in this screenshot? Is that just a transient snapshot of what uplink MCS was in play at the moment it updated, for whatever SM was transmitting at that moment?
