I've been having an annoying problem with the Access Point 350. It all started last summer while I was away on holidays and the access point actually wasn't used.
Anyway, when I came back the throughput was suddenly much less than it was before - around 30Kb/s. The clients are 350 PCCards. I've reset all settings to their defaults, but it didn't do much.
Specifically, using the aironet client utility if I send test packets at 11 or 5Mbps none of the packets make it through. With 1 or 2 Mbps, all packets make it trough.
I've tried running clients under Linux, used two different notebooks, but no difference. I've tested the client with a different access point and the troughput was way higher. Took my problematic access point to another place (half a town away) and no improvement of throughput.
I've tried several vxworks firmware upgrades, but it didn't make a difference. Neither with the IOS software.
What improves the throughput is when I set the data rates on the access point to 1&2Mbps Require and 5&11Mbps Enable. This raises the throughput to 50kb/s.
Basically, I have run out of ideas of what else I can try / test / change to make it work as normal. I was very impressed with the product at the beginning, but now I'm beginning to think it was a bad investment, what with the price back then about 2x anything else with same specs.
Did anyone have a similar problem? Any solutions / hints? I'm desperate.
