I meant, When you enable application visibility under WLAN advanced configuration, you get an extra combo ==apply policy group== and I was wondering if you have this one.
I have the same version you are running but is a ZD 1100.
There is no a short answer for that. Many factor will influence in how the signal behaves even in open area.
But as an alternative you can check our support site data sheets of every AP to have a better idea
The short answer would be no. However if you are using it (the hotspot) as a test, why don't you set up the option unrestricted clients along with After user is authenticated option to the login portal where the user can click ok button to navigate?...
