Re: Wireless Slow after migrating to 802.1x

Yes my next step will be to create a new 802.1X ssid with the same vlan of  the OPEN SSID and test.

Too many variables.  You need to put 802.1x on the open SSID and test.

Re: Wireless Slow after migrating to 802.1x

You are right!! I will try it and report my findings.

Re: Wireless Slow after migrating to 802.1x

So I created an 802.1x SSID for testing

- Regardless of which vlan the wireless connnection is slow. 7Mpbs Avg.

 

Then I created a Open SSID for testing

- Regardless of which vlan the wireless connection seems to Avg 40 Mbps.

 

Still quite a differnce between the secure and open ssid.

 

So then I moved the AP from one building to another controller and experience the same issue.

 

On Monday i will call support. Any suggestions?

 

Thank you

Nils.

Re: Wireless Slow after migrating to 802.1x

You said that the controllers are not the gateway, and you suspecting a router might be causing the issue. You could test that by placing two PC's on the switch in the same vlan as the wireless users use and try your tests again. This would bypass the wireless but still use the same infrastructure path up to but before the controllers. Just a thought.

Re: Wireless Slow after migrating to 802.1x

I found the problem to be not the wireless controllers but a tipping point box between the AP and controller was doing a L3 scanning causing slowness on the encrypted SSID. In case someone else run into a similar issue. 

 

Thank you
