    problems with D-Link WAP

    Myself and our highly able technician have set up and installed 3 D Link wireless acces points. They are all encrypted, the SSID is the same on all and they are on separate channels. They work fine in the mornings. Soke afternoons we have a problem. The laptops that are connected to the WAP suddenly lose their caonnectiona and nothing can connect to them. The siganl strength is excellent and all the laptops can see the WAP. Windows there is limmited connectivity or no connection. Any ideas what this can be?

    D-Link APs strike again! Try a firmware upgrade/downgrade (ensure you use the UK version!) and see what happens.

    D-link AP have a bit of a bad reputation here as not being suitable for school use. I wonder if we should drop them a line?

    I know that there is something wrong with them but they won't acknowledge it.
