I have about 10 Cisco 1200s. They are spaced out pretty well throughout my building. There does not seem to be that many dead spots that I have noticed. My question is about clients accessing the APs. We have nearly 175 computers on a one time. Each access point seems to have 65-80 clients assosiated with them all the time. Is there something I can do to tune them to drop inactive connections or something?
It seems like they start to perform badly after they get so many clients on them. I have read that the 1200s should only have up to 50 connections at one time, and that the AP will only go as fast as the slowest pc connected. I have set each of them to require 18Mbps and disable lower speeds. I have also made sure the channels are set to 1,3,11. We are using authentication on the APs with 3 SSIDs
Any tips would be great!
