Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Turns out the APs are NOT to blame. They actually work great when I took out the firewall. Church did send a new firewall but so far tech support is unable to get the web interface on it to come up. Might have to get YET another new one (even though this one is brand new). Hence I guess one answer t...

Re: Bad batch of 881W Firewalls?

I'm in a bash Cisco mood so I'll contribute to this. Heck yeah we've had issues with them. All of our buildings now have had at least 3 of the 881s and one is on it's third. They are complete junk in my opinion. I recommended you surge protect it's power supply in (kinda no-brainer there) but also i...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Latest I've heard from Salt Lake is that this problem is becoming more widespread and they gave me an open ticket on it. I'm starting to suspect the firewall more than just the 1041s (3rd 881 firewall we've had at this building) as the members are reporting to me that they also are losing wired acce...

Re: Church internet connectivity woes (possible 881w issue)

Yeah, I've been told that too about the 1041's but they DON"T sense each other and avoid conflicts, at least not in our buildings. The are plugged directly into the Cisco firewall too (ie: no switch in the way) and I've even reset them and had them reprogram themselves while connected directly ...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Might be. Seems the ipads have the worst time of it. Might need to see if there is some app out there that would help debug the issue.

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Tonight we disconnected one of the offending APs and the problem seemed to go away. Not sure what I'll do now.... Cisco seems to be pretty low quality equipment from my experience with the Church equipment. :(

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Frustrated by this. The APs in question are Cisco 1041s and are separated by the cultural hall (ie: both are in the attic on opposite sides of the building about midway down). Firewall with AP is on the end of the building (middle). Even after power cycling these 1041s APs still both go to channel 1...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

This is happening at the Dacula, GA ward building. I would love if it support would login and see what they can reconfigure. Latest info I got was that during PEC they were in the back of the building and had a ton of disconnect/reconnects. This happens to be the area covered by the AP in the firewa...

Re: Wireless dropping/reconnecting

Yeah, figured that would be the case but a call to Salt Lake said that's the way the network engineers want it and they can't change it. Also, we have some evidence it might be the AP inside the firewall with the biggest issue. Seems like some were saying the AP inside the firewall has issues? Any v...

Wireless dropping/reconnecting

We have one of our buildings with an 881 AP and two Cisco Wireless APs. The two APs are near the front the of the building (one on either side) and appear to be on the same channel. I think the AP is also on the same channel. In any case, what I'm getting complaints about from the Bishopbric is that...
