At one point we had 160 clients, out of which 140 are associated and out of that 100 are authenticated. So really only 100 clients. We have about 30 APs, 10 or so from remote offices (internet still comes back to us). This setup worked fine until we had board members come in on their IPADs and needed to update our app. About 20-30 of them started to download it and it really bogged down the wireless. Testing with the IPhone, I got a throughput of less than 56KB/s, today with practically no one using it, I got 256KB/s.
So there's no way to check how much bandwidth the APs are using as a total?
Where is your slowness comng from ? Do you really know?
1) I might check the wireles medium. If you have 1 PHY rate enabled you could have very high channel utilzation impacting your wifi medium. In some enviroments Ive seen 50% channel utilzation with NO traffic, it was all managment frames
2) Wireshark/Omnipeek the ports on the switch going to the WLC. You can see the amount of traffic actually going through.
