I'm trying to replace a Intel access base. The access base was working just fine for 12 months after that all the computer were experience a very poor signal so I went to the access base and changed the frequency channel it worked fine for another 3 months now I have the same issue again. The workplace is isolate from other offices so there is no way for signal conflicting, also there no wireless devices on the office to inter-fer with the computer network. So I decide to change the access base and I don't feel like going to office depot and buying a home wireless access base. Does anyone knows about a professional equipment that is not too expensive. Also if someone have any idea of what was possible happening on my network I will really appreciate that.


Thanks

jdff ... very strange ..... if the Access base's internal oscillator would be dead then no channel would work.  I truely belive that someone else started emitting a signal on that channel with high power and it's disturbing yours (might be some long range wireless network or just a 2.4GHz cordless phone, microwave cooker or whatever).  Just for testing purposes move the access point and one of it's clients to another  spot and set it back to the initial channel. See if it gets back to normal.
Regarding a cheap and good AP, I'd recommand you Linksys's WAP11 AP or BEFW11S4 wireless AP and router. It's performant and affordable and don't forget that Linksys works under direct Cisco control.

Yea I agree with kronostm, could be something interfereing you don't know of.

However I wouldn't spend a nickel on a Linktrash even if it says Cisco on it.......a Cisco 340 or 350 can be bought on ebay or even direct fairly cheap now. 340's are EOL's so they are dropping in price BIGTIME.
