WAP4410N stops responding as an access point

I have two WAP4410N's running the firmware. One acting as an Access Point and the other as an WDS repeater. The one configured as an AP stops responding every 20-30 minutes and has to be power cycled. All the indicator lights are ok but doesn't respond to pings or via the web interface.

Any word from Cisco on when we'll see a fix?

These are fairly pricey for consumer grade APs, I'd rather not have to buy another brand to replace them.

Hi Max,

That is exactly what was happening to me until I moved the APs away from sources of heat (it seems they were overheating). To figure out if this is the same problem for you either move the APs to a different (cooler) location or blow a fan at them for a couple of days to see if performance improves. I know that this sounds crazy but it worked for me!

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the tip. I will play around with placement, though currently the AP is in a temp controlled server room but I will see if I can maybe get it closer to a supply vent.
