MAX Transit Cat-18 Band Steering from 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz


I am reading in several post that it should be possible to force clients towards the 5GHz when connecting to the AP.
I was reading the pepwave-max-user-manual-8.1.0.pdf and I could not find any hint about this?
How is it configured?
Can I assign the same SSID to both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz and have the client automatically connect to the 5GHz version or do I need 2 separate SSIDs?

A screenshot of the steering configuration would be great


Here you go…it’s in the SSID configuration.

The way it works is… when a Client tries to associate to 2.4 it’s denied… then the Client tries to associate via 5 and is allowed, as you will find out, denying clients isn’t always the most reliable mechanism for moving them to 5ghz… that’s why it’s called steering and not locking :wink: lol.

Thanks! That was really nicely hidden under Help :slight_smile:

My bad, I have found the right place

Out of curiosity, what firmware version are you upgraded to?
I am looking at the live demo that runs 8.0.1 build 4368 and the Band Steering is not available

Sounds like you figured it out, but I’m on 8.1.0
