    Waireless AP with 10/100/1000 connection?

    As above, do the exsist?

    A friends school has just had 20 D-link APs fitted by his supplier company. They are saying performance is slow becasue the LAN only has 10/100 switches, and the wireless are 10/100/1000. So they need to upgrade all their switches.

    I think its all BS bearing in mind that after a look on D-Links site, the APs fitted donot have 10/100/1000 conections, and the APs are 54mps, so 1Gb LAN connection would not make a blind bit of difference.

    What are your thoughts guys?

    Yes - 100% BS.

    Poor quality, unmanaged switches - maybe, and too much traffic already traversing those switches maybe warrant a bigger pipe for everything...

    The cheek of some people to try and fob you off with rubbish like this. I used to work for a company who were a reseller/Cat 5 etc etc to schools so I know and have seen all the cheeky things they try with schools when things havent gone to plan. I find it most amusing when they try it on with me :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Pure rubbish!

    I use DLINK APs (2000+ AP) and they are UP TO 54MBps...

    Laugh at them.

    If you are trying to use AP'a as an integral part of the LAN and try and use them as you would a wired connection to a desktop PC then IMHO it is disapointment time all round, and you will suffer horrible slowdowns and connection problems. If the laptops (I presume?) are just used for web browsing and light file access such as word documents etc then there should be no problem. We tried to have a wireless training suite once with 21 wireless PC's connecting via two 54Mbps Buffalo base stations. It was a disaster. Once AV updates, SUS auto updates, GP software installs were all factored into it it, it became a horrible slow mess. We learnt a very valuble lesson that year.
