SonicWall VLAN Problems

Hello All,

We have a SonicWall NSA 4500 here in our building and use all Cisco Layer 3 Networking.  Our core is a Catalyst 4506 and our switches are all Catalyst 3550s and 2950s.

I am trying to deploy about 12 SonicPoint NDRs, and would like them to both advertise 2 different SSIDs.  One for private (with access to servers), and one for public (with access to Internet only).

I believe I have things setup correctly, and have left the SonicWall in charge of DHCP'ing things.  I am able to see all the SonicPoints show up in the SonicWall interface, and can confirm they all broadcast the two SSIDs.  I can even confirm that I can connect to both, and receive different IP's (based on the different VLANs), however, one is a lot slower than the other.

One I get good latency when pinging things for connectivity testing, the other times out quite frequently, and then just kinda craps out in general.

I called SonicWall, multiple times, they were of no value.

I am running out of ideas of what the problem could be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and let me know if you need any additional information.

Thanks again,
