Wireless Network Slowing down after 3 or more users connect

This may be a simple fix and any suggestions would be appreciated.

We have a hospital network, using Cisco 1200 series AP. We have plenty of AP coverage, signal strength stays excellent. The issue is we are beginning to run our main database system wireless and after more than 3 people connect to the system it becomes very slow and at times data is being lost.

We have ruled out hardware on the laptop sides, added more AP's and nothing has solved the issue. the computers have no internet access so no additional usage from the user side is the cause. Any suggestions on increasing the bandwidth in this situation?

Re: Wireless Network Slowing down after 3 or more users connect

Since you mention 3 or more people, I wonder if its not so much a question of bandwidth, but either the nature of the bandwidth (shared) or RF traffic interference (traffic on same channel, different APs and/or overlapping AP channels).

Are you running the APs independently or are they under control of a wireless management/control package/system?

Good point from Joseph.

What model is your AP?

How many AP's are you using?

Is the slow bandwidth evident across the board or only in small patches?
