Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Tonight we disconnected one of the offending APs and the problem seemed to go away. Not sure what I'll do now.... Cisco seems to be pretty low quality equipment from my experience with the Church equipment. :(

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Frustrated by this. The APs in question are Cisco 1041s and are separated by the cultural hall (ie: both are in the attic on opposite sides of the building about midway down). Firewall with AP is on the end of the building (middle). Even after power cycling these 1041s APs still both go to channel 1...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

This is happening at the Dacula, GA ward building. I would love if it support would login and see what they can reconfigure. Latest info I got was that during PEC they were in the back of the building and had a ton of disconnect/reconnects. This happens to be the area covered by the AP in the firewa...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Yeah, figured that would be the case but a call to Salt Lake said that's the way the network engineers want it and they can't change it. Also, we have some evidence it might be the AP inside the firewall with the biggest issue. Seems like some were saying the AP inside the firewall has issues? Any v...

Wireless dropping/reconnecting

We have one of our buildings with an 881 AP and two Cisco Wireless APs. The two APs are near the front the of the building (one on either side) and appear to be on the same channel. I think the AP is also on the same channel. In any case, what I'm getting complaints about from the Bishopbric is that...

Sorry but this last reply sounds too much like a shill for Sophos. If you are talking about their great track record of making machines unusable then I'm with you. If you are talking about their great track record of declaring their own update system a virus, then I'm with you. Otherwise, I pretty m...

FYI, the Stake clerk disabled Sophos a while back on his Clerk PC and the machine has worked great ever since. He was getting a huge startup penalty and slowing everytime he started the PC (20 minutes or so). On a tech podcast about a week ago I heard them making fun of Sophos as their latest update...

I've solved this problem simply by buying a cheap plug in timer that power cycles the cable modem and firewall each night. It's granularity is 1/2 hour so from 2 to 2:30 in the morning or both are off. This has made the calls about no internet much less frequent. Mainly it's the new 881 firewalls th...

The problem is I get a lot of "Sophos was taking forever to come up - we had to wait 15-20 minutes" complaints . It's not uncommon, although this particular update was aggregious. I've also had to reinstall Sophos on many machines just to get it to be able to update again and quit pestering the user...

No, plenty of bandwidth. Cable modem has around 20 mbit download on avg. (nice). Just when second ward arrives in afternoon it's about 40 minutes before IP addresses become avail. for many to be able to connect. Sounds like all I need is to call the GSC and problem will be solved. Thks.
