Throughput slow on Cisco AIR-SAP1602I-K9

Lately our Access Point throughput has slowed by a factor of 8. I can't point to a single event. Can someone suggest some troubleshooting steps?

These types of issues are most likely caused by a wireless device.  The best way to troubleshoot is by disabling wireless devices connected to it.  If that's possible do it one by one until you find the fault.  Make sure to wait a good 2 minutes after each device is disabled to test the network speeds.

Try changing the channel.  If there are other devices on the same frequency/channel interference will have a negative impact on throughput.

Use a program like InSSIDer to see what other Wifi devices are around.  This might help.  Post a screenshot if you have trouble deciphering the output if you use it and I'll tell you if you've an interference issue.

Restart can also fix as long as device is no longer at the location.
