Hello Crew - anyone else seeing weird problems with WiFi today? Our clients won't stay connected, The connection establishes, everything is good, then the connection drops with a message stating that either an IP address could not be obtained or couldn't authenticate connection.
We haven't touched the config. Everything was running along just fine until this started.
I have rebooted select access points to troubleshoot the issue, but no joy.
The APs are acting like they did when the Google geolocation issue was happening a few weeks ago.
I figured it out. The problem was self-inflicted, like so many are. I have three MR30 APs set-up as wireless bridges for another network on the table next to my desk. My phone/laptop were both trying to associate to the bridges instead of the MR74 on the ceiling, which is connected to the production network.
I just completely forgot that the MR30s were sitting there powered-on but without a usable connection to a DHCP server. When I got up from my desk to go get some coffee, I saw them sitting there and what was happening smacked me in the face.
Working in IT provides a person with plenty of opportunities to make an arse out of yourself. 🤐
I'm not seeing any issues here, but my WiFi setup for clients is pretty simple. I've only got one AP that sees regular use, and I'm just using WPA2 with a Pre-shared key. But there are 8 clients connected now that have been associated for anywhere from 10 hours to 1 week and no issues have been reported.
