Posted on 2011-10-12

My company has installed a new Sonicwall 2400 network security device and we are also putting in a SonicPoint Ni access point.  Setting up the SonicPoint is pretty straightforward as detailed through this article:

However, we are getting intermittent internet connectivity.  We've updated the firmware on both the devices.  There isn't any major interference problems. We've made sure that a firewall isn't blocking packets.  Also, some users can get on sometimes and not others and I have an iPhone that will not connect at all.  We've called tech support and they did a packet inspection and said that everything looked fine.  Can anyone with experience settnig this up shed some light on the problem?

    I found the solution.  Apparently it is a problem inherent to Apple products, spefically iPhone's and iPads.  Please see this link for details.

    So you have to uncheck "enable aggregation" for N clients.

    We had trouble with iPads connecting to sonicpoints. We learned we had to disable frame aggregation.
