3 level building with 6 AP's. I'am 15 feet away from the nearest AP and keep losing signal with my 7925's. Wireless laptops are showing low connectivity bars. I will stand under or less then 3 feet and keep losing connectivity. All AP's are connected to a 3650 POE switch. Never had any problems like this until we upgraded AP's and controller. More recently the controller. We went from a 2006 series to a 2100 series. I have tried muliplte phones and laptops on all AP's. Please advise.

Check the power output on the APs. Ive seen where after upgrading RRM wasnt right and sent all aps to a power of  0...


Go wireless->>click 802.11b or A under radios and look at power level... what is it set to ?

Can you provide more details on the setup?


Band Selections? Data Rates Enabled? Transmit Powers? Authentication Method? Encryption Types?


Thanks

thanks for the rating ... I suppose that was your issue? Odd, cause i had the same issue and it put all my APs on the same channel too ...

I really do not know what the issue was. I changed some settings based on your questions you were asking and reset them. They worked all day today. However they just seem to intermittently stop working after a few days. I looked at the logs and it shows thousands of errors. I'am not a wireless guy so i do not know what to look for.

I also changed all the AP's Channel to 11 and it seems to be broadcasting better now.

What is the nature of the error messages? can you post them ...


Having all your APs on the same channel is not advisable. You should only use channels 1,6,11 and keep like channels spaced appropriately. Having them all on the same channel causes co-channel interference.
