Zone director vs unleashed

New Contributor


I am running 7 ruckus r510 in my house on unleashed. I have a zone director 1200 lying idle with me. Is there any performance difference if the Aps are run on unleashed vs on zonedirector.  All aps are hardwired to a POE switch.

I am not liking the range of the r510. My clients mostly iPhone remain on the 5ghz channel and disconnect when far from the ap but don’t move to the 2.4ghz. I created a separate 2.4 ghz ssid but don’t see much range difference on that either.

Could range performance improve if running a ZD or deciding which channel to connect before disconnecting when moving out of range.

I hope I can get a reply from you or someone from ruckus. Thank you
