A technician is troubleshooting a slow WLAN that consists of 802.11b and 802.11g devices . A new 802.11n/ac dual-band router has been deployed on the network to replace the old 802.11g router. What can the technician do to address the slow wireless speed?
- Change the SSID.
- Configure devices to use a different channel.
- Split the wireless traffic between the 802.11n 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band.
- Update the firmware on the new router.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Splitting the wireless traffic between the 802.11n 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band will allow for the 802.11n to use the two bands as two separate wireless networks to help manage the traffic, thus improving wireless performance.
