Hi,
     I am pretty new to cisco. We recently upgraded our entire campus to Cisco equipment.I had a consultant assist with the install and when we were setting up the wireless he setup a bandwith limit for the guest network on our core (4507) using policy-maps. Whatever he did worked, but too good. The speed is way too slow. It was originally setup for 2Mbps but thinking that wasn't enough i changed it to 4Mbps. Changing it from 2 to 4 made no difference at all. Below are the settings. Is there anything wrong that i might be missing?

Thanks!

When dealing with wireless you will need to address attenuation.   To put this into simple terms how much saturation of the wireless signal vs interference.   Additionally in relation to this product, some things I would test POINT TO POINT vs point to the internet.  http://www.ixchariot.com/products/datasheets/qcheck.html

Based on your setup there isn't anything that should throttle you significantly, however your switch config and additionally how many hops you have will impact it.   I will watch this thread if you add anything additional.

I dont think there is saturation. The slowness is only on the Guest wireless network. The internal wireless network works fine. I'll give that tool a try though. thanks

I figured this out. I didn't realize the rate limiting was setup on my secondary core as well. Once i set it to match the config on core 1 it worked flawlessly.

Thanks for all of the input

I figured out it was the other core that was causing the issue
