A client contacted me for assistance with their wireless network. They had just purchased three WAP121 wireless access points and upon setting them up discovered the devices provided extremely slow access to the Internet. They have cable Internet service from Comcast and when attached to Ethernet or an older wireless router, speedtest.net shows download speed of 30Mbps. But when connected to any one of the three WAP121 devices they get less than 1 Mbps down.
Upon reviewing the settings with Cisco tier 1 support nothing seems amiss. The issue persists even when the AP is transported to another site. I am awaiting contact from tier 2.
Anyone else seeing this kind of behavior?
YES! After reviewing this forum, and testing on my own. Update Firmware, and Turn off 'N' - Just broadcast 802.11b/g networks. I have Comcast with two WAP121, and had SAME issues. This fixed it instantly.
Don't know why, and don't care at this point.
