I have a problem with the concentration of clients in one of the LAP in a floor. There are about 34 clients connecting on radio a/n and about 12 on b/g/n.
Even though there are two access points the client distribution seems to be not happening well. Could it be because of the distance between the two access points? They are one at eeach end of the corridor.
I was planning to install one in between the two. Will this solve the issue?
That should help. They are not connecting to the other maybe due to weak signal. So if you provide another AP make sure it's signal can reach either end to help with client load.

Client dictatesroaming. From ap 1 what is the signal in dBm of ap 2 and the other way around.
As for load balance. Does really work. Most client dont abide by reason code 17 ..

Thanks , but is this going to cause any interruption to the traffic?
The problem is since we have a single WLAN that we use for all our users, I am not sure if it is a good idea to enable it like that.
Can this be tested first on a few access points only through some commands?
thanks for your help
Try and get adjacent AP's on the same WLC so that the roaming is smoother. Also, if the AP' are in close proximity to each other you could increase the mandatory data rate to shrink your cell size. Again, that depends on the density of your deployment, but it would help distribute your client load.
Don't enable aggressive load balancing.... you need to add another AP because you probably have a poor signal from one or the other.
