Forcing the Client Adapter to Reassociate
The client adapter will attempt to maintain its association to an access point for as long as it can.
Therefore if you are on a fringe area while conducting a site survey, you may want to reinitialize (or
restart) the client adapter in an attempt to force it to disassociate from the access point to which it is
currently associated and reassociate to another access point.
Follow the steps below to attempt to force the client adapter to disassociate from its current access point
and reassociate to another during a site survey.

The percentage of packets that were transmitted successfully.
The Percent Successful histogram provides a visual interpretation

for the Percent Success Threshold is indicated by the red line.
Percentages greater than or equal to this value are displayed as
green bars; percentages below this value are displayed as yellow
The number of packets that were not transmitted successfully to
the access point.
The number of packets that were not received successfully from
the access point.
The percentage of packets that were retried for transmission.
Refer to the Percent Success Threshold parameter in
Table F-2
for more information.
This value is calculated as follows:
(number of retries x 100) / number of packets sent
If a lot of packets get lost, the number of retries could be
greater than the number of packets sent. Then this field
would show a value greater than 100%.
