WISP SmartBridges access point (Airpoint Pro Outdoor) speed questions

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by joshuaphoenix, May 3, 2006.

  1. My name is Josh and I

    work for Communications

    Advantage, a high speed

    Wireless internet service

    provider serving

    Calafornia's Amador

    county and some

    surrounding areas.

    To serve our 400+ clients

    we primarily use



    Total, AirBrige Outdoor,

    AirPoint Pro Outdoor and

    AirPoint Nexus), a few

    Tranzeo radios(2.4 units

    and 5.8 for backhaul when

    NEXUSes are not

    available) and Mikrotiks

    for bandwidth management.

    We are currently having

    an issue that we have

    been unsuccessfull in

    solving. The Willow Creek

    area has been plagued

    with slow speeds and

    massive flooding on the

    wireless side.

    Two Bonded T1 lines in

    Ione link wirelessly to

    the Cammanche area that

    in turn links to Willow

    Creek without any

    problems. When connected

    to the switch, in Willow

    Creek we get beautiful

    speeds(1-2mbps) but when

    connected wirelessly to

    the AP we get very very


    speeds(40-200kbps) even

    when the ethernet port

    usage is 500kbps with

    peaks at 1mbps.

    The Willow Creek location

    itself consists of a

    switch that connects the

    Tranzeo uplink(TR6), an

    AirPoint Pro Outdoor and

    a NEXUS ap that we hoped

    would replace the APPO.

    The Willow Creek AP

    (AirPoint Pro outdoor)

    has about 20 clients, two

    of them are uplinks to

    other APs(Also APPOs)

    that have less then 10

    clients on each of them,

    so no more then 40

    clients are passing

    traffic through the AP at


    We have made sure that

    all equipment upstream of

    Willow Creek is indeed

    functioning correctly and

    that no equipment or

    wires are faulty. We

    tried connecting clients

    to the NEXUS and they saw

    300kbps - 700kbps(very

    Though for some reason we

    couldn't get some

    airbridges to connect to

    it, and later the nexus

    booted almost every

    client off at the same

    time for some unknown

    reason and we were unable

    to get them reconnected.

    Our two main questions


    Has anyone noticed any

    Issues with ABOs and ABTs

    connecting to NEXUSes?

    Why is our AP so slow and

    how can we fix it?

    Any ideas or questions

    are very welcome.

    Worse, those that are here may well be put off by the bad formatting of that
    post. The OP should use a better news client, or Google Groups.
