The Weirdest Wireless Issue Ever
Setting: We use ZyXel equipment's throughout the school, specifically in the Training area we have two of these equipment's setup with PSA-WSK2 key and both with different channels settings, 6 and 9. I have swapped out these equipment's for new ones, I have changed them around, I have changed all the network cabling, I have changed the patching on the switches and wall. I have also changed from getting their IP from DHCP to manual.
Curiosity: This issue only seems to occur in the Training area, located on the far end of the building. Rest of the school great!
Weird Problem: After all the changes and trails I have done, I cannot get laptops to connect to the wireless. Actually they do connect, but they get the ! mark and a 169.* IP address. Turning them off and on about 50 times and with the Force on your side you eventually get them connect to the wireless. I mentioned laptops, because this only seems to happen to laptops with Windows on them, don't have any Linux laptops to try with. The curious thing, is that iPhones, iPads and MacBook Pro's easily connect to the wireless without an issue. Seems like I have a 'racist' wireless here (not that computers are races...). I have ran out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.
