Lucent DWBS Interfering with 802.11g?

We have an old Lucent DWBS wireless phone system.  We implemented a new 802.11G based wireless phone system using Cisco 1142N APs and 2 Cisco WLC.

We are having a weird issue where the new Avaya phones are only getting 1-2 bars even if you are standing next to the AP.

We have not decommissioned our Lucent DWBS system.  Could it be interfering with the Cisco 1142N?

Does this actually cause issues, or are you just wondering why you only have 1-2 bars?

You could turn the Lucent kit off and see if the signal strength increases.  My guess is it won't as interference doesn't affect signal strength.

Look at your WLC and check the signal strength of the Avaya phones when they're next to an AP.  What kind of values are you seeing?
