Packet to client, reached max retries

Answered Question

Hi all!

I have a problem what I can't resolve.

I have 5 c861W router, and I configured to use WDS. It works fine.

but in the log I see this messages:

Apr 16 08:47:12: %DOT11-6-ASSOC: Interface Dot11Radio0, Station ****.****.**** Reassociated KEY_MGMT[WPAv2-CP]

Apr 16 08:48:10: %DOT11-6-ROAMED: Station ****.****.**** Roamed to ****.****.****

I tried what guides suggested, I checked the carrier test but all of the channels on 1-10%. I tried to set non overlapping channels as far as i can, and set fragment-threshold to 1024.

I have no idea what is the problem. I thing channels aren't noisy. Not just one client do this, don't think it is a client problem.

Something is missconfigured?

here is a config sample:

interface Dot11Radio0

no ip address

no ip route-cache

encryption vlan 1 mode ciphers tkip

encryption vlan 100 mode ciphers tkip

ssid my_ssid

ssid my_ssid2

channel 2437

fragment-threshold 1024

station-role root

no dot11 extension aironet

!

any idea?

thank you!

I have this problem too.

Thank you!

I think it could resolve my problem.

I'm going to test it.
