Installing and configuring an access point (AP) is generally a straightforward affair. Plug in the unit, establish some basic configuration settings, and you are ready.
However, your environment might require you to tweak more settings for optimal performance. For example, in an effort to conserve laptop battery power, you might reconfigure transceivers to operate less frequently. You might also find the need to manually set radio channels or adjust the size of frames that are broadcast and received. Cisco APs provide a way to manage these settings.
