for fine tuning of the wifi is it possible to extract from the system the signal strengths that each ap report that they see from and to each other?

likewise can the power levels of each individual ap be adjusted?

    Hi @accurro,
    The power level of each AP can be configured individual by clicking the AP in Access point> Configure> Radio settings.

    thanks - needed some more detail as took a bit of time to actually find this setting - for anyone else also looking:

    Access Point > Configure > Radio >>  the main page just does power for all the APs - roll to bottom of page and select the AP you want from the list and then click the small edit on the top left.

    thanks for the power setting bit but is the first part of the question asked possible?

    Hi @accurro
    Sorry for missing the question. Currently, there's no AP detecting setting on the NCC to show the other APs' information. However, you may try to use below command via remote to the AP for checking. 
    Router> _debug wireless_dbg wlanconfig wlan-2-1 list ap
    The wlan-2-1 means wlan-5GHz-SSID1, if you want to use 2.4GHz in SSID1, you can enter
    Router> _debug wireless_dbg wlanconfig wlan-1-1 list ap

    Although it can be checked via the command, it's recommended to scan the environment in station view, and you may use WiFi scan tool, like Winfi (windows OS) or AirPort (iOS).
    Thanks.
