Wireless network available after 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

We're going to use this AP in a standalone system, is there any way to reduce this boot time?

Re: APIN207 bootup time

Why do you need a faster boot time?

Re: APIN207 bootup time

My PC with software is ready in less than 90 seconds and my wireless client is ready in 40 second.

PC and AP are turned on at the same time so now is necessary to wait 3 minutes before being able to start to work with the equipment.

 

Thanks

Re: APIN207 bootup time

I doubt there is much you can do to increase the AP boot time (if its even possible as its pretty much non-configurable). Are you working in an environment where the additional 2 minutes to boot is critical? Is the CAC timer running on the 5Ghz radio as well an issue?

Re: APIN207 bootup time

I don't know if it's possible but for example maybe just skipping image signature verification, reduce timeout in master election, DHCP timeout, DFS timer.

As we work in a fixed and controlled enviroment there'are some useless step that maybe takes 1 minute all togeter.

 

Thanks

Re: APIN207 bootup time

Have you converted your AP to standalone mode? If it is a single AP that may skip the master election process and save some time.

 

From the logs, it looks like the AP has a fixed static IP already so there should not be DHCP timeouts. If you see delays on the 5GHz radio because of DFS waits, manually limit the radio to select non-DFS channels only (36-48) might take that component out, but the 2.4GHz radio should be enabled immediately.

 

The image verification is important for the AP security and is bound by the CPU capacity of the AP which is considered an entry level AP in the Aruba product line. A higher end AP will boot faster in this case.
