Help understanding AP debug log

[ Edited ]

Wondered if anyone could help understand the following messages I am seeing when I look at the debug log of an AP.

 

Ive had reports of poor coverage within the area, but am struggling to actually pinpoint the problem.  

 

I have just deployed some new AP93's (not used these before).  Running AOS 5.0.4.12

 

This is just a sample of some of the messages I am seeing:

Re: Help understanding AP debug log

These messages are not sending any red flags my way.  Can you find a problem client's MAC address and issue this command in the configuration?

 

logging level debugging user-debug xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

 

Where xx:xx is the actual mac?

 

That will tell us about the actual client and what may be happening. Also, consider a code upgrade.  May I ask what controller hardware you're running?

Re: Help understanding AP debug log

Will be doing some more investigation this afternoon.. so will filter the client mac during debug.

 

No go on the code upgrade due to the controllers and cards we have, alhtough planning hardware upgrade in the coming months and am looking forward to v6!

Re: Help understanding AP debug log

Hopefully doing some further testing tomorrow...

 

Ive just rolled out some 105's, and they two seem to be having the same issues as the 93's which makes me wonder if they need to be treated any differently than non N class APs with regards to their config?  or are they simply  just another AP?

 

My laptop was dropping pings all over th eplace, and couldnt even perform a simply taks of mapping a drive to my desktop pc.

 

Ill do some troubleshooting tomorrow.. just seem coincidence that im having issues since using these N class APs.

Re: Help understanding AP debug log

Did you look at the Dashboard to see the health of those access points?

Re: Help understanding AP debug log

I apologize.  You did say 5.x.

 

How long has this problem been happening?  Has it ever worked?  How many users are on the WLAN?  How many SSIDs?  Encryption?
