In ZD on the Dashboard, each meshed AP shows signal strength to/from the source AP. But it's not clear which number is which. I see also the little radiowave symbols go up and down, but is the up meaning uplink, which would mean signal strength from the meshed AP?
Thanks for the reply!
You are right it's a FROM/TO relationship, as when I hover over the little arrows, a small popup says as much.
My guess is exactly the opposite - the 7762 has external omni antennas, so I would think the signal FROM the 7762 is a tad stronger at the receiving end (WEAVER) than from WEAVER to the 7762.
It would be nice if Ruckus can clarify this. That 5% on MAINTENANCE SHOP concerns me, but without knowing what I'm seeing, it's hard to try to fix it.
Integrated adaptive antennas usually have higher gain than the attached omni as they can focus the energy not spread it out like omni. That's probably why you are seeing lower signal on the downlink than up.
another reason why there is this imbalance is also the fact that link is not reciprocal (not the same in both directions).
