I am at my wits end here with my wireless implementation and hoping somebody can help.
I have 8 WRVS4400N Wireless-N routers set up on different channels using the same SSID and WPA2 enterprise authentication for roaming. Everything seems to connect fine and works for PC's, phones etc but for some reason the MACs I have here keep dropping the connection even though it shows it is still connected. I have narrowed it down to mac as no other deviced have an issue. To get them connected I just turn off airport then turn it back on.
I put in a Dlink router with WPA2 enterprise auth (same settings as the Cisco except it is using 802.11g) and there seems to be no issues. Even if I change the Cisco APs to use 802.11g I still have this issue.
Is there any setting that I am over looking here that allows compatability for mac?
I have tried everything I can think of, even updating the firmware of the routers ( V22.214.171.124-ETSI).
Here are the settings I am using on one of the APs, the others are the same except for the channels.
Wireless network mode: G/N mixed
wireless channel : 11
Multiple BSSID enabled (using 2 SSIDs, one using Radius and one WPA2 PSK for testing)

feature was added that would allow customers to upgrade the firmware for
their clustered access points from the main access point.The basic steps
to accomplish this is:1) Download th...
Special thanks to Alex McDonald for sharing his favorite tip:My favorite
tip is the ‘write default’ command on autonomous wireless access points,
it simplifies manual conversion of a WAP with a static ip address to a
LAP with a DHCP address.This saved a l...
