Hp Wireless network problems
Last year we had a company come in and setup a wireless network in our science block for 24 laptops.
He setup 4 aerials on their own VLAN, secured with WPA2, with the wireless module of the switch acting as a DHCP server for that range, that all worked a treat and the laptops were logging onto the domain with no issues.
Recently I've setup a lot more vlans at the school, using Microsoft DHCP server, and HP procurve switches with the IP helper address pointing back to the DHCP server.
Also we have added 26 more access points to the network, making a total of 5 SSIDs with their own VLANs. The wireless module still sends and receives information from those APs on VLAN2100 (default for the module).
Wireless edge services module mounted in a procurve 5406zl chassis.
APs are HP Procurve 200 series.
The problem is that the wireless networks have all slowed down since the new ones have added, so much that they are almost unusable.
Could it be:
- The fact that we now use DHCP server and the ip helper-address function on the core switch?
- The fact that each AP is pushing out the 5 SSIDs
I'm at a bit of a loss here, and would like to resolve the issue without calling out a specialist if I can, but I have a feeling I'm a bit out of my depth.
I've even gone so far as to actually reading the manual :eek:
Any help is as always much appreciated.
