In a old thread (that I only noticed recently) it was mentioned that each SSID uses 2.3% of bandwidth. Not seen that figure mentioned before.
I use a lot of SSIDs (12) to segregate, assign and control different groups of school laptops. If this is correct I would try to use far fewer.
Any comments about the BW implications per SSID or other reasons for/against numerous SSIDs welcome. Thanks.
Ah. Good thinking..
But do you need/want to increase the bss-minrate as well?
What's the lowest 11b speed vs the lowest non-11b speed?
How much of a speed gain can you expect from ditching 11b support and is the speed gain directly related to the minimum "PHY" rates or ...
How much overhead is there that's strictly related to the 11b protocol itself? (as opposed to the PHY rate?)
