WLAN channels... all diff or all same?
Thought I'd ask for some suggestions as I need a fresh viewpoint on the wireless system at a school.
I had a tech from a different company in for a whiteboard installation and somehow they managed to wangle a new wlan AP install for the school in the process (whole other story). But in the process of unravelling the issue there was some discussion about the channels used so I thought I'd double check my own logic on this.
Am I right in thinking that it's generally better to have all the Access points on distinct channels (4 apart) even though they are part of the same RADIUS supported SSID?
The other tech believed that you should keep them all on the same channel and SSID to stop the laptops from disconnecting and reconnecting all the time.
Thoughts, opinions, facts please...
