We have 16 Samsung laptops with windows 7 and they are connected wirelessly to a ruckus AP.
We are having slow logon issues.
We also have random laptops that don't process the students logon.bat file as referenced in their AD profile....conseqently not only is it slow to logon but some of the lucky ones who logon don't get their drive mappings.
Event viewer seems not to hold any clues.
I am going to start my own thread.

Well after much investigation I have got logins at around the 60-95 second mark.
I've disabled the Windows Defender service for starters. Also the driver for the Atheros Ar9285 was dated 2009. Asus don't offer an updated driver and neither did Microsoft Update - however when I rolled back the driver to the old MS one (dated 2009 as well) and ran Update again it found a new Atheros signed driver dated June 2011!
So I manually got this driver from MS and put it on the Win7 netbooks. So far so good and logins aren't much faster but they seem to have been a little more consistent. Time will tell when 60 or so of them login at once!

FYI my thread on the subject of ruckus / slow transfer rates / dropped packets etc is :
For random users (wireless Lan) logon.bat does not run??? How to troubleshoot!

I wouldn't say our Win7 clients have poor transfer rates (although I haven't run tests!) - but from general use they work fine. Opening files/streaming videos etc seems ok once logged in. It/was the massively variable login speed that was a headache here.
It seems to me that Win7 needs to be fully updated and pruned down to keep it running at a half decent rate over wireless.
