I have recently implemented a cisco wireless solution. 2 4400 Wireless controllers, Cisco Authentication Server, and 72 1242 Access Points. There are about 3 to 4 Access points per Hallway in each building. I have been monitoring the AP's through an analyzer and through the WCS server. I am basically wondering what type of RSSI should I be seeing to determine a good signal. Also the default loads for the access points are set to 12 clients. They state that each access point can hold 250 connections. While I realize that is an unrealistic number since performance would be "0" We have mobile labs that may have up 30 laptops connecting at once. Is this too many clients for 3 or 4 access points in the area? Performance of the clients seems to be good, but I do get alarms based on the load.
