801.11n clients running at 7mbps

I have several clients that conect up on 802.11n that are running at 7mbps. Cisco seems to think that it is because the clients are running a single spatial. Why would a client connect to N if it has only one antenna when it could be faster with just 802.11 a/b/g?

It seems you have configured both G and N on the same 2.4 radio which is degrading the performance.

you shpuld be searching for some access point which only support N radio. Configuring both b/g/N or a/N on the same radio or channel degrades the performance eve if the client is only N.

How would you only have N turned on without a or g?

Re: 801.11n clients running at 7mbps

Its what the client and the AP negotiates as.  Clients will always try to connect to 802.11n rather than a/g.  Thats just how client devices seem to work.  You can disable 802.11n, but if your client isn't negotiating properly or is negotiating at a lower data rate, you will still be running low.

Thanks,

Scott
