877w wireless throughput

Hi All,

Newly installed 877w into my new residence. I'm getting pretty poor WLAN transfer speeds between local hosts ( < 1000KB/s ). I'm wondering what sort of speed I should excpect with a carrier busy result like this:

#sh dot11 car bu

Frequency Carrier Busy %

--------- --------------

2412 100

2417 100

2422 100

2427 100

2432 100

2437 100

2442 100

2447 100

2452 100

2457 100

2462 100

2467 100

2472 100

Aside of lining my house with lead, is there anything I can do to help the situation? I only use the wireless indoors, never have a need for it outside.

.. or

Could it be a fault with the radio in the gear? Or an IOS problem? I'm currently running (C870-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), 12.4(11)XJ3.

Thanks in advance :)

Re: 877w wireless throughput

Hi,

Could be hardware.

Try use your laptop and free tool i.e. Netstumbler for wireless monitoring.

Or use free Linux Distro BackTrack 3 (boot from cd or usb key) - there is plenty wireless monitoring tools (notice this distro will not work with all wireless cards).

Best option, to see whats is going in spectrum, will be Cisco/Cognio spectrum expert.

Cheers

Greg
