The following is a quick guide on how to force clients to disconnect from MikroTik access points when their RSSI or signal strength drops below a certain threshold. For this example we will be using wlan1 as our wireless interface and setting our RSSI threshold at -70. Please note that you will need to be either hardwired to the device or connected via a different wireless interface as this will disconnect you when changing the wireless settings temporarily.
- Disable default-authentication on wlan1. This will force authentication through our access list.
set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] default-authentication=no
- Set our Access List Policy to force clients with worse than -70 to disconnect.
/interface wireless access-list
add allow-signal-out-of-range=1s interface=wlan1 signal-range=-70..120
