Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

Compared with the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the 5 GHz frequency band has less interference and more available channels, and provides higher access capability.

Most STAs support both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands and usually associate with the 2.4 GHz radio by default when connecting to the Internet. To connect the STAs to the 5 GHz radio, you must manually select the 5 GHz radio. The band steering function frees you from the manual selection.

After you enable band steering for a specific SSID on the device, the AP preferentially associates the terminals connected to the SSID with the 5 GHz frequency band. After the 5 GHz frequency band is fully loaded, the AP steers the terminals to the 2.4 GHz frequency band.

Configuration Impact

After the band steering function is enabled, it takes a long time for dual-band terminals to associate or roam. You are advised to disable band steering for delay-sensitive services.


If both radios of an AP use the same VAP profile, the band steering function takes effect on both radios as long as the function is enabled for an SSID on one radio of the AP. For example, if band steering is enabled for the SSID huawei on the 2.4 GHz radio but not on the 5 GHz radio, the AP preferentially steers terminals associated with the SSID to the 5 GHz radio.

Single-radio devices do not support the band steering function.
