    Hello detectives!

    Did you know AP’s behavior when enable Load Balancing?

    APs with Load Balancing enabled send out broadcast packets every ten seconds to announce their loading status and detect if there are other APs with Load Balancing enabled in the environment.

    For Example, when we deploy two APs in the same room with Load Balancing enabled, while one of them (AP-1) is overloaded. Through the broadcast packet, it will know that the other AP (AP-2) is under loaded.

    Once an overloaded AP detects an under-loaded AP in the environment, it will disconnect wireless devices that exceed the threshold one by one, until its client number equals to the threshold.

    Keep up the investigation,
