Configuring ClientLink (Beamforming)

Configuring ClientLink (Beamforming)

Cisco ClientLink uses advanced signal processing techniques and multiple transmit paths to optimize the signal received by 802.11 a/g/n clients in the downlink direction without feedback. By default, ClientLink is disabled. You can see ClientLink general status through the show network command: ap dot11 {24ghz | 5ghz}.

You can enable ClientLink for all APs, with the global configuration command ap dot11 {24ghz | 5ghz} beamforming. Use the "no" form of the command to disable ClientLink:

ap dot11 5ghz shutdown

ap dot11 5ghz beamforming

no ap dot11 5ghz shutdown

These commands enable ClientLink globally; then, it disables ClientLink on a specific AP radio:

ap dot11 5ghz shutdown

ap dot11 5ghz beamforming

no ap dot11 5ghz shutdown

ap name 3602a dot11 5ghz shutdown

ap name 3602a no dot11 5ghz beamforming

ap name 3602a no dot11 5ghz shutdown

Show commands:

show ap dot11 5ghz network | include Beamforming

Legacy Tx Beamforming setting : Enabled

show ap name 3602a config dot11 5ghz | include Beamforming

Legacy Tx Beamforming Setting : Disabled
