We had the same model (or same family) long time ago and it had similar symptoms before it completely died. Network traffic slowed down, and WiFi range dropped dramatically. When opened, I noticed some of the capacitors had noticeable 'bulges'. So I'm guessing the electronics inside yours is just coming to the end of its life.

It was a bug. The person who developed the original PWD code only added the User-Name VALUE_PAIR to the request's user-name caching pointer, not to the actual request list. Some modules ignore the pointer, it was crappy optimisation from a long time ago. Adding the pair to the request list fixes the issue. Here's the commit. Thanks for helping track down ...

From what i know, changing BSSID is hardware related. So, unless you provide some details regarding your router, i doubt you'll get much help. Now, considering your main goal is to protect your wlan, using WPA2 with a 63 chars passphrase will do a way better job than hiding/changing SSID/BSSID.

This depends on the driver implementing this. This could allow you to join multiple networks at once, or connect to one network while routing traffic from an access ...

In your hostapd.conf: # Module bitfield (ORed bitfield of modules that will be logged; -1 = all # modules): # bit 0 (1) = IEEE 802.11 # bit 1 (2) = IEEE 802.1X # bit 2 (4) = RADIUS # bit 3 (8) = WPA # bit 4 (16) = driver interface # bit 5 (32) = IAPP # bit 6 (64) = MLME # # Levels (minimum value for logged events): # 0 = verbose debugging # 1 = debugging ...

Connect to your existing network, without question. Not only will this reduce RF noise, but it will also greatly simplify the instructions you'll need to provide to the users of these devices.

The answer is that it really depends on your specific environment. Without many more details, no one can answer this for you. However we can provide some guidance that may help you in making this decision. Each infrastructure or AP wireless device you have on a channel (in the same area) will increase the amount of "air time" on that channel used by ...

Focus on the changes you made that could have impacted this. You made changes to the Aironets, and now 1/2 your wireless PCs are impacted. You should be smart and simply revert those changes immediately, to restore service to your users. Then, you could test those changes one-by-one, preferably in a test environment, to see which of those changes (or ...
