We are currently deploying some Chromebooks and we are facing some connectivity issues on main administrative sites.
Contrary to production areas where low data-rates are enable to cover warehouses and wide spaces. In admin building we have disabled the low data-rates to improve WiFi efficiency.
By using AP2702 in sniffer mode (+5520 running 126.96.36.199) I have been able to highlight that even if low data-rates are disabled and not in the supported data-rares send in the beacon frame Chromebooks are still trying to use those low data-rates to associate to the network. Android, Apple and Windows devices only use data-rates advertise by the Access Point.
It create a bad user experiences, Users are able to see the network not not to connect to it as the Chromebook tell them that the network is "out of range".
Google certified that we are the only customer complaining about this issue.
Is there someone else who is able to see the same behaviour?
Thank you in advance for your help
