I have an 802.11g wireless network that is experiencing latency and the constant need to reboot the AP. The devices that utilize it need to send and receive a lot of data. I need a good list of every possibility that could be causing these issues. Thanks!

Interference in the 2.4Ghz range:
1. Microwave ovens <-- really nasty this one
2. cordless phones
3. Bluetooth
4. Co-channel interference (Other AP unit on or near the center frequency of your AP)

RF propagation:
1. Diffraction
2. Scattering
3. Reflection
4. Multipath fading

Network Infratructure:
1. End to End delay between switches and routers
2. Viruses
3. Malware
4. Network Hardware failure
5. Firware bugs
6. Network utilization (Saturation on network links)

the list goes on!

>The devices that utilize it need to send and receive a lot of data
What is "a lot" of data?

Billy,

This is great info. I did not even think of RF propagation as a factor or co-channel interference. I am not sure how to gauge the wireless data usage but I am pretty sure it is high enough to be taxing on the 802.11g network.

Short of hardware failure or firmware bugs given the situation, could you think of any other reason the AP would need frequent rebooting to start working again?

Thanks!
