Why is the association rate displayed on the STA low

7

The possible causes for the low association rate displayed on the STA include:

- If the STA is far away from the AP, signals are weak, and the negotiated association rate of the STA is low.

- If the 802.11n APs use WEP or TKIP encryption, the association rate of STAs may only be 54 Mbit/s (that is the rate of 802.11b/g). Because WEP and TKIP are not defined in the 802.11n protocol, the STA associates with the AP in 802.11g mode if TKIP encryption is used.

- If the network adapter supporting only the 802.11b/g mode is associated with the 802.11n AP, the maximum associated rate is 54 Mbit/s. Alternatively, the radio type configured on the 802.11n AP is in 802.11b/g mode, so the AP supports only the radios in 802.11b/g mode.

Try the following methods to resolve the problem:

1. Place the STA closer to the AP.

2. Change the encryption mode to CCMP in the security profile.

Why is the association rate displayed on wireless terminals low
- This is because wireless terminals are far away from APs. As a result, radio signals are weak. In this case, the association rate that is negotiated by the wireless terminals is low. Specifically, the signal transmission rate of 802.11g APs includes 54

What STA information can be displayed on a WLAN device
1. Number of STAs associated with an AP For V200R005, run the display station assoc-num command. For V200R006, run the display station ap-id xx command. 2. STA information For V200R005, run the display station assoc-info sta sta-mac command. For V200R006, run the display station sta-mac sta-mac command. The display contents vary depending on versions. The following uses V200R005C10 as an example: display station assoc-info sta d420-6df4-f37e Station mac-address : d420-6df4-f37e //STA mac Station ip-address : 0.0.0.0 //STA IP Station gateway : 0.0.0.0 Associated SSID : jsldoc //SSID Station online time(ddd:hh:mm:ss) : 000:00:04:20 //Online time The upstream SNR(dB) : 30.0 The upstream aggregate receive power(dBm) : -79.0 Station connect rate(Mbps) : 23 //Rate Station connect channel : 1 //Channel Station inactivity time(ddd:hh:mm:ss) : 000:00:00:00 ......
