1041n Access Point Performance

Unanswered Question
Aug 25th, 2012
User Badges:

I purchased a new ap1041n access point. It's the first Cisco I've tried to configure in a long time. I'm trying to get the 802.11n working but it seems to be stuck in 802.11G since I can only get it to go up to 36mb. The radio says its running in mixed mode and I can't figure out if that means b/g or b/g/n. I ran the Express Setup and it didn't seem to help me. I'm hoping it's an easy fix. I posted the config below, if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

For 802.11n, use either OPEN authentication or WPA2/AES or PSK.

Ok, after I enabled wpa2 what do I need to do in order to enable 802.11n?

Test it using a KNOWN 802.11n-capable wireless NIC.


Do NOT use smartphones or tablets.  Use a laptop.

Ok, on my Dell Precision with an Intel 5100 agn wireless nic the link speed tops out at 72mbps and I checked on a different laptop with an N wireless nic and it also topped out at 72mb and that's sitting right next to the access point.



Edit: Ok the Intel 5100 is apparently just crap, I set it to 20mhz only instead of auto and now it's connecting at 144mbps which is closer to what I expected. My understanding is that I can't get the full 300mbps without a MIMO card.

Check the link below, see if you are running the latest wi-fi NIC card drivers.
