I currently have 3 Linksys E4200 routers that run a roaming wireless network. Authentication is WPA2 Enterprise and of late, there have been some authentication issues with EAP timeouts etc...
From what I can see, all was working fine up until about a week ago when I decided to change the wireless channels on all 3 devices to auto (on both 2.4 and 5.8 bands). Now some devices (ranging from mobile phones to laptops) will see the single SSID, attempt to connect and will fail. Laptops will give the certificate prompt, then say it was unable to connect.
2 of the 3 devices are relatively close together and will sometimes 'argue' with each other while the 3rd device is far enough away not to cause interference.
What I'm thinking is I should change the channels on all 3 devices back to manual.
There is a person in the vicinity who uses 2.4 channel 1. What channels would I best be using?
Device 1: 2.4 channel 6, 5.8 channel 44
Device 2: 2.4 channel 11, 5.8 channel 36 (this device is the closest to the other persons device that uses channel 2.4 channel 1)
Device 3: 2.4 channel 1, 4.8 channel 48 (this device is the furtherest away from all devices including the other persons device that uses 2.4 channel 1)
