Hi all

We have approx 15 APs located around site. We have introduced 40+ notebooks recently and noticed slow access with our wireless network.

I understand the recommend amount is roughly 10-20 clients per access point. The less clients connected the better performance per user.

My question is can I change the max associations for each AP to 10 or 20, introduce a few more new AP's and would this mean the client notebook would keep trying until it reaches an AP that will accept associations ? Is this the recommended solution ?

I believe the hard coded limit for associations is 32. But I would never go above 15 per access point as your performance will suffer greatly.

I would add more AP's into your environment to lighten the load. If you were in an LWAPP environment, the controller can handle load balancing for you as well.
