Configures transmission parameters for probe response frames sent by the access point in response to probe requests received from clients.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i, AP510e, AP560i, AP560h


probe-response [ac-strict|rate|retry|rssi-threshold]
probe-response ac-strict
probe-response retry
probe-response rate [follow-probe-request|highest-basic|lowest-basic]
probe-response rssi-threshold <-128--40>


probe-response ac-strict
probe-response ac-strict Strictly restricts sending of probe-response frames to 802.11ac capable wireless clients. When enabled, the radio will only respond to probe-request frames received from 802.11ac capable clients.
probe-response retry
probe-response retry Enables retransmission of probe-response frames if no acknowledgment is received from the client. This option is enabled by default.
probe-response rate [follow-probe-request|highest-basic|lowest-basic]
probe-response rate Configures the rates used for transmission of probe response frames. The tx-rate options available for transmitting probe response frames are: follow-probe-request, highest-basic, lowest-basic.
follow-probe-request Transmits probe responses at the same rate as the received request (default setting)
highest-basic Uses the highest configured basic rate
lowest-basic Uses the lowest configured basic rate
probe-response rssi-threshold <-128--40>
probe-response rssi-threshold <-128--40> Ignores probe request from client if the received signal strength is less than the RSSI threshold specified here

<-128--40> – Specify a value from -128 - -40.
