We have a problem with our devices not willing to roam to the Cisco AP’s.
This happens on different locations, with different Cisco WAP models and different brands of devices.
Models that we tested:
CISCO WAP 121
CISCO WAP 321
CISCO WAP 571
CISCO WAP 150
All models have the same latest firmware installed.
All configurations where done via the wizard, and ap’s were configured into a cluster.
All the ap’s in a cluster are the same model.
All computers (HP, DELL, ASUS, LENOVO) Apple iphone, ipad were not roaming correctly between access points. Connection drops sometimes. We have also noticed that some computer connect to an access point further down the office while it has almost no signal, while you are sitting next to an AP.
Tests are not when ap’s when only a couple clients are connected, so not overloaded.
Has anyone an idea of what we can check ?
Have you found any answers? I keep striking out. I have one location with 1852s, and my house has 1832s. So far these are the worst APs, regardless of manufacturer, I've ever worked with. I replaced my 1142n with the 1832s and I'm tempted to go back to the 1142n. Everyone always says it's the clients responsibility to switch APs, and that may be, but I've never had a problem on any other APs.
