How Do I Set a Proper Interval for Sending Beacon Frames?
Solution

The AP sends Beacon frames at intervals, notifying a STA of the WLAN. The AP also notifies the STA that AP data will be sent to the STA based on the DTIM in Beacon frames.

When the interval at which Beacon frames are sent is set to 1000 ms, mobile device save more power. However, packets are buffered on the AP and are not sent to STAs immediately. As a result, there is a delay in sending ping packets and some packets are lost. It is recommended that the interval be set to 100 ms.

Run the beacon-interval command in the radio profile view to set the interval to 100 ms.
