iPads jumping from one SSID to another?

Hello,

One of my customers is experiencing this problem, their iPads are jumping from one SSID to another causing intermittence in the service. There are 3 SSIDs, two with WEP and one more open.

This are AP and IOS versions

c1130-k9w7-mx.124-25d.JA

Thanks!

Re: iPads jumping from one SSID to another?

When you deploy wireless, on of the biggest problems is no control over wireless profiles. There is nothing you can do on the AP. If the user has added all three SSIDs, well that means the device has a choice of what SSID it wants to connect to. The only way to prevent the issue you are having is to only have the iPad users connect to one SSID. It might be training of users to let them k ow what they can and shouldn't do. Maybe not broadcasting the SSID is what you need to do so these devices don't automatically join networks.

how big is your deployment? You could do a aaa Mac address authentication. If its a small deployment, less macs to deal with the better.
