Hi there,
I recently setup a WAP in a conference room.  However the signal is horrible.  I am literally sitting 10 feet away from the access point and getting 'poor' signal.  My configuration is below.  Do I need something that is not configured?  Please help

In my opinion, there may be other issues here rather than your Aironet configuration.
Another issue for me is the fact that you have not specified whether this poor signal is between the client machines and this particular WAP or the client machines and access to internet.

I'll suggest you check out the following guides from Cisco. They talk about improving the signal strength and carrying out a site survey, before deciding on the location of the WAP.

Hope this helps. Comments/suggestions/corrections are welcome.
