Limit clients with signal strength on FortiAP



I would like to know if there is a way to set a Signal Strength level so that when a WiFi client reaches that level, it tries to roam on the AP.

Example, I would like whenever the client reaches -66dBm, try to switch to an AP with a better signal, lower than -66dBm.

Is such a configuration possible?

The client will make a roaming decision and it's not trying to choose the best one all the time because that would cause flapping. Instead it hangs on to the original one as long as possible, in other words, it has set itself some worst tolerable limit upon which it will roam and as long as your 200-ft-away AP is good enough, it will not ditch it for a better one  .
