Associated AP

This visualization shows to which APs the client was associated during an active survey. As you move along the path, the client adapter typically roams to the AP that provides the strongest signal within your WLAN.

It is important to remember that some adapters allow for adjustment of roaming thresholds; these roaming settings might affect the roaming behavior and, therefore, this visualization. For example, consider two APs located 20 meters away from each other with the signal level ranging from -30 dBm next to the APs to -70 dBm in the middle of the distance between the APs. As you walk from the first to the second AP, some clients will roam as soon as they pass the middle point, while others will not roam until they are only a few meters away from the second AP. For the same reason, the Associated AP visualization is heavily dependent upon the walkabout path and its direction. Walking from the first to the second AP might produce a picture that would be different from the one produced by walking in the opposite direction.
