350ap droping tons of packets when failing over to diff. switch

We have about 6 aps in a baggae sortation room where 2 ap are on different switch, the clients use scanner that just talk to a web page, they complain about the internet explorer e just spinning, what I found out was that I had to adjust the cell size put the power down to 20mw which solved the problem, but I have another issue, when I roam to an ap which is on a different switch running a countinous ping I drop packets for 20-40 secs before it replys, the entire time signal is excellent and i am auth. to leap. the catcher is its not a two way problem when i go back to the previous ap it only drops the standard 2 packets and starts replying, returning to the ap on the other switch resluts in the 20-40sec delay, I know comm. is working because failover is working and that talk over ethernet...both switch are cisco 3524 connected to 6509. switch one is 10.0.1.4 and switch to is 10.0.2.4 with a trunked vlan 200 10.0.10.0/24, and of course this config works becase like i said after 30-40 sec cleints starts comunicating...I'm starting to hate this wireless...why does cisco have their error message posted on their website, or a knowledgebase where we can search common issues (ex. microsoft.com) I know I'm not the only one with this problem.. ..any sugesstion will be appriciated, Thanks

Re: 350ap droping tons of packets when failing over to diff. swi

The fact that turning down the power helped you makes me think that you may have interference problems. The AP that picks up clients quickly may be clear and the others may have overlapping cells or interference from somewhere outside the planned coverage area.

Re: 350ap droping tons of packets when failing over to diff. swi

I sort of figured it out, the majority of the apwere on a 3524 that had 1 up link to primary distribution 6509 and second going to another 3524 via gigastack on the second had the aps, the scound uplink on 2nd switch when to secondary 6509, the 6509 are running hsrp, by unpluging the secondary uplink and rebooting the clients failover worked fine..It looks like possible spanningtree issue..
