Instant AP205 and Hand Held Terminals lossing server connection

Hi

 

I have a customer with Instant AP105 and AP205 using WPA2-AES.  They are using Hand Held Terminals (HHTs) to scan barcodes. 

 

When the HHTs are not used for a period of time they can't connect to the SQL server until the HHTs are pinged and then they come back to life.  They drop the 1st few pings and then are OK.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Do they have any type of sleep timer configuration in the settings?

 

Is this a PSK network or 802.1X?

Hi Tim

 

At present they are using WPA2-PSK but we are planning to be locking the network down to MAC authentication by MAC adddress of the HHTs once everything is working OK.

 

When you refer to sleeptime settings, are you refering to the HHTs?

Hi Swishyfish,

 

One more question, what version of Aruba Instant are you running?
