Going to try again this morning, forced the ZD last night to channel 40 and all the ipads are connecting fine, will try the laptops with upgraded cards in a min and see if they connect at g\n or a\n. On first glance though I do still seem to have an issue with the older laptops running at b\g.
Never got it throught them got the evaluation equipment through CP-LTD not spoke to them yet as I only got everything set up around 4pm yesterday so this is the first proper day looking at it.
laptops running Windows use a LOT more traffic than ipads. Ruckus have great airtime fairness but it is still a share of the total available bandwidth.
Using 2.4GHz then channel bonding is nearly impossible in an environment that has to deal with ANY other WIFI. Bonding will only occur when there are two adjacent channels with no other APs using that channel and also ANY client not capable of channel bonding is in range. (the AP will un-bond automatically)
Well todays test could not have gone any better,
The only room I could find to spread the laptops out was the KS2 hall so I spread the laptops all over the hall and setup one of the Ruckus 7982 AP’s, whilst monitoring the ZD I could see that all laptops were connecting at 5Ghz and maintaining a constant 130Mbps.
We logged on and streamed a combination of an 800Mb Avi file and a 4Gb Mkv file with no issues whatsoever other than laptop batteries fialing.
Could not be more pleased and a great start to the evaluation.

I do have an issue with them though as since they have been installed the laptops randomly crash but not the same one and not all of them its really odd, going to put xp on and see what happens then.
Good old W7x64 seems to have sorted the laptop crashing problem out,
As far as the evaluation is concerned I can’t fault it the 7982 Ap’s are out standing, the streaming test passed with flying colours and today I set about deploying apps etc over the wifi to the ipods and pads once again a great success.
Going to try another streaming test in the morning but its looking good for the investment next week.
