Specify Wireless AP Channel Frequencies

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

When you deploy multiple wireless access points (APs) at a single geographical site, you must configure wireless APs that have overlapping signals to use unique channel frequencies to reduce interference between wireless APs.

  1. Determine whether there are any wireless networks owned by other organizations in the same building. Find both the placement and the assigned channel frequencies of wireless APs owned by other organizations.

  2. Identify overlapping wireless signals on adjacent floors within your own organization.

  3. After identifying overlapping coverage areas outside and within your organization, assign channel frequencies for your wireless APs. This ensures that any two wireless APs with overlapping coverage are assigned different channel frequencies.
