WAP connectivity problems with new laptops :(
We have a HP ProCurve Wireless Access Point 420 on our 16 bay trolley.
We used to have 13 toshiba laptops which worked off the AP for about 4 years.
We decided to upgrade them to Samsung NP400B laptops running windows 7.
We've had nothing but problems.....
If we boot all the laptops up around the same time usually around 3 or 4 will say:
"There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"
It can take up to 7 minutes for the remaining ones to logon.
(with a wired connection the logon time is around 45 seconds max.)
In an attempt to solve the issue we:
1. Created a new windows 7 image from scratch for the laptops.
2. Updated the wireless card drivers to the very latest from the Samsung website.
3. Turned off all security features on the AP.
It's made very little if any noticeable difference...
Getting a bit stuck now...
Should I buy another brand of AP to try?
Is there any monitoring software I can use to try and workout what's going on?
Help appreciated...currently the trolley and all 16 laptops are in my office.....they can't be put back in to service I don't think until the whole lot can logon simultaneously in under say 3-4 minutes - that's not unreasonable is it?
