Wireless Help and Suggestions.
Posted on 2007-12-05
I need some help/suggestions on setting up a wireless network that will allow users to roam throughout a building with multiple wireless access points and not have loose connectivity. All clients are on
a windows domain and running terminal sessions at all times. What is the best way to configure the multiple WAPs? Should I create them with all the same SSID and Channel? Should they all be on separate channels with the same SSID? Should they be different channels and SSIDs?
The current installation is 2 Netgear WG302s and a Linksys WRT54G all are acting was WAPs (wireless access points) all on the same Channel and SSID. If this is not optimal please any suggestions would be appreciated. Currently they are dropping connection every once and a while and I'm having issues with DHCP. There is a Windows Domain controller that is the DHCP server and when a client gets disconnected the system will not be able to connect back to the DHCP server until the client computer is rebooted.
