interference created by nearby AP

Hi All,

We have 2800 AP and we configured 80 MHz. Due to this we are seeing same channel on nearby APs and also we are seeing slowness in network. We changed channel width to 20 MHz and also not seeing same channel on nearby AP except few. We have few query regarding that :-

1) How to check if we still have interference by nearby AP. How to check from WLC

2) Why we still see some AP on same channel . Issue is far better than previous channel Width of 80 MHZ, but still have few APs on same channel. Any specific reason

 

Please help me in above query

Under CleanAir what interference are you seeing in 5.0 Ghz?

Re: interference created by nearby AP

Hi @Leo Laohoo ,

We have added all parameters in interference to detect section.

That's not the answer to the question.
In the controller, Cisco Cleanair > 802.11a/n/ac > Interference Devices.
What are listed there?
How many have a Duty Cycle of >80% and what is their corresponding RSSI values?

Re: interference created by nearby AP

Hi @Leo Laohoo 

Only seeing one device in 5ghz. Attached the screeshot. Duty cycle is 100%

RSSI of 102. That's too far to do any difference.
What happens if you set 40 Mhz channel bond?

What kind of wireless clients are complaining of slow response(s)?  Laptop?  Smartphones?  Tablets?

Wait ... Did you specify 80 Mhz or did you set to "Auto"?

Re: interference created by nearby AP

Hi @Leo Laohoo 

Its set auto on 20 Mhz. Earlier it was 80 Mhz and assignment was auto

Check the 2960X for any line errors &/or Total Output Drops.
