Wireless Clients frequently disconnects

Hi There.

 

We are facing a frequent disconnection of our Wireless Clients on our Meraki MR44 access points. We are running the current stable release 29.4.1 on all our access points.

The user is stationed at his desk and he gets disconnected frequently within every 20-30 minutes.

When we see the event log for the user it shows client disassociation --> Unspecified reason.

Clients are running Win 10 and there Wireless adapter is up to date.

Any expertise suggestions would be highly appreciated.

 

Best Regards,

Abdul Azeem.

Try disabling WiFi power saving with these two commands:

 

powercfg /SETDCVALUEINDEX SCHEME_CURRENT 19cbb8fa-5279-450e-9fac-8a3d5fedd0c1 12bbebe6-58d6-4636-95bb-3217ef867c1a 0
powercfg /SETACVALUEINDEX SCHEME_CURRENT 19cbb8fa-5279-450e-9fac-8a3d5fedd0c1 12bbebe6-58d6-4636-95bb-3217ef867c1a 0

  

Dear Philip

 

Thank you for your suggestion, i believe this change has to be done on the client machine. I will make these changes today and keep you posted with results.

Dear Philip,

 

We are experiencing the issue while the client is actively working on the network.

As per your suggestion i have run the above commands on my machine, but it doesn't resolve my issue. I am still getting disconnected from the Wireless. Though there is a continuous traffic from my machine in LAN and Internet.

Any other suggestions will be highly appreciated.

 

Best Regards,

Abdul Azeem.

This means the client is choosing to disconnect, and we don't understand the reason why the client has done this.  This is why I have suggested disabling WiFI power saving.

 

If you go Wireless/Access Points/Timeline - does it show any issues (perhaps the client is trying to roam to another AP and that process is failing)?

Does Wireless Health show anything interesting?

Dear Philip,

 

Wireless client is stationed at his desk, he doesn't roam physically. But he has 3 AP's surrounding him AP19 that has been a stable client never disconnects, AP 17 and AP 16 usually the client is getting connected & disconnected mostly between AP 17 and AP 16.

It doesn't shows up much detail on the Timeline it doesn't even shows that the user is disconnected.

could it be the client 'roaming aggressiveness' setting ?  Try lowering this to medium or low, this will result in the client not searching as much for other ap's that are nearby once already connected.  Here's for example the intel card in my laptop settings

You can also try setting your ap's radio profile settings to auto power if they are not set this way already

Are there any clients attached and working to either AP16 or AP17?

 

Do the switch ports that AP16 and AP17 are in have the same configuration as AP19?
