Re: WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

Unfortunately this setting had no effect whatsoever on my 10 units they all still drop wireless clients. I tested that setting about a week ago.

I do have one question did you set the interface on the switch to 100Mbps or force the AP to operate at 100Mbps from within the AP’s Web Interface?

On the WAP

Re: WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

That is mind blowing. I have tested that setting a week ago and it had no effect I factory reset the test unit and set that setting only and within 5 hours the AP dropped all clients until I rebooted. Now I have implemented all of the settings that was outlined by peter spencer earlier in this forum with the exception of the 100Mbps setting and the APs have been up longer than ever. I am keeping my fingers crossed

WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

Guess I am off to support to see if the beta software will solve the channel jumpping problem.

I have about 20 of these things and around 25% of them will channel hop.  I set them to channel 6 and every few minutes they will jump to channel 2.  They will stay there for about 45 seconds and then jump back to channel 6.  By then I have 20 or 30 users that have lost there connections.

I have one question.   How many users will the WAP4410a support at one time?

WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

I have recently purchased 3 of these units for our offices after chatting with a Cisco Sales Rep online and then having one of them contact me to make the sale.

I installed the units on the 14th of March and have had nothing but problems with them dropping clients until rebooted. I have installed the latest firmware, done factory resets, followed all the different ideas and advise that is posted to try overcome this problem and nothing. The APs have to be rebooted at least twice ever single day.

I have not been able to identify a trigger that causes them to drop the connected clients, it is just random.

Any other ideas or suggestions welcome as my el cheapo Linksys (Cisco) router is out performing these expensive units on every front.

WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

Mike,

 

They are still trying to resolve the lockups, or knock off symptoms some clients are getting. They believe they have found the problem but need more sampling to make sure they have pin pointed the root cause of the problem. Anyone with client drops that can do a man-in the middle capture of the wireless communication would help speed up the resolution time.

To do this you can use NetMon in Windows 7 machines.

Re: WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

Thanks Cindy.... hmm, no Panama on the list.

Am I able to call the US to talk with a Support Engineer or will I get the run around saying I have to deal with someone within my country?

Re: WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

I’m sorry but I could not afford to have these units in production any longer. They have been removed and replaced about a month ago.

Re: WAP4410N - Will these ever work properly?

What did you replace them with Michael?
