high packet loss after enabling 802.11n

Hi, we have just enabled HT on the 3200 controllers, clients are experiencing high packet loss, was fine on standard g connection.  It's a fairly dense deployment of AP93's on 2.4ghz any ideas what could be causing the loss?

 

thanks

Exactly what parameter did you enable?

 

Are these "N" clients?

 

Are they using encryption?

Re: high packet loss after enabling 802.11n

sorry for the confusion the clients were using WPA-TKIP we updated Group policy and SSID to allow WPA-TKIP & WPA-AES.  The clients now connect at speeds varying between 1-130mbs but there seems to be a lot of packet loss

Re: high packet loss after enabling 802.11n

Clients that use WPA-TKIP have a maximum association rate of 54m.  AES would give you "N" speeds, but group policy can only configure one encryption type.  How do you configure two?
