Wireless Coverage problem

Unanswered Question
Sep 1st, 2010

Hi All,

                I have 1 WLAN controller 2112 and 10 APs 1242G with external antennas and I’m facing a problem in the coverage, as while standing directly under any AP (about 4 meters far) without any obstacles in-between the signal received at the hand held device is good and when moving little a bit away the signal decreases to fair and poor while by using a cheap stand alone Linksys AP in the same place the signal in the hand held is excellent which is normal due to the small distance.


·         The antennas are two dipole antennas in each AP with Omni directional radiation pattern.

·         The antennas are oriented vertically and perpendicular to the AP body.

So anyone has any reasons or solution for this situation ?, maybe there are some settings in the controller can make the AP optimized for coverage distance or something like this, please advise.

I have this problem too.

The 4941 is for 2.4 Ghz.  As you know, there are only three non-overlapping channels on this frequency.

What's the coverage like on the 5.0Ghz?
