1. An access point, comprising:
an interface circuit configured to communicate via wireless communication with one or more electronic devices in a wireless local area network (WLAN) and to communicate via wired communication or wireless communication with one or more second access points in the WLAN, wherein the access point is configured to:
identify at least the first connected electronic device based at least in part on: one or more communication performance metrics associated with at least a subset of the one or more electronic devices; or information included in a packet or frame associated with the first connected electronic device;
determine a weight corresponding to the history of responses; and
selectively provide, addressed to the first connected electronic device, a recommendation based at least in part on: the weight, a history of responses of at least the first connected electronic device to one or more previous recommendations, a communication performance metric of the access point and communication performance metrics of the one or more second access points, wherein the recommendation indicates that the first connected electronic device, which is associated with the access point, transition to a different communication channel;
wherein the history of responses comprises information specifying whether the first connected electronic device accepted, declined or both a previous recommendation in the one or more previous recommendations;
wherein, when the weight is less than a first threshold, the recommendation is selectively provided;
wherein, when the weight is greater than the first threshold and less than a second threshold, the recommendation is selectively provided along with a warning to encourage acceptance of the recommendation; and
wherein, when the weight is greater than the second threshold, the access point disassociates from the first connected electronic device instead of providing the recommendation.
