Re: Users are facing dropping issue in guest network

What type of clients are connected? Are they only 2.4Ghz capable? How many of them are connected with 2.4Ghz? 

 

If the clients are dual band capable, still connect on 2.4Ghz, I would look at the RF design and AP power levels.

 

I would also look at the SSID configuration? Have you configured any session timeout & User Idle timeouts?

Use 5.0 Ghz.

I don't really believe that changing the power levels of the AP will help. Unless you have identified that all your APs are using manually set high power. You might have more luck utilising a different channel (1,6 or 11).

 

Switching to 5 GHz will give you a cleaner Airspace to play with as the 2.4 GHz only has 3 non overlapping channels.

 

If you need to stay on 2.4 for some reason then suggest:

Conducting a survey of the area around the AP to see how many other APs you can hear on the same channel.

You could try software like WiFi Explorer or inSSIDer  or Ekahau Site Survey to see how many APs are on the same channel in the area that your AP is located.

I would also investigate if you have a Microwave in the area and try turning it off.

Re: Users are facing dropping issue in guest network

If you are looking at 2.4ghz and TX is at 1, then to me that means you don’t have enough AP’s. Your 5GHz should be around TX of 1-4 I would say and 2.4GHz should be in the lower range closer to 4-8.

If you have other SSID’s and users are facing the same issue, then it’s most likely your AP density. If you have other SSID’s and only guest users are affected, then it’s also a setting on your wlan.

We've already provided a recommendation of turning off 2.4 Ghz to determine if this improve things.

Have this, at least, been done?

Should I change for particular one ap or entire wlan ?

Find an AP with large amount of guest dropping out and then change that.  Make sure your wireless device is connected to that AP as well so you can verify that it's actually happening.

Team all 6 Ap are in channel 1. Now how to decide which should be in 1 6 11.


Good grief!

This is 2.4 Ghz!  How is anyone going to determine if 5.0 Ghz is the solution if no one is going to turn off 2.4 Ghz even for testing?  

So what other information is being held back?
