Model: EAP235-Wall  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 3.1.0

Hello, I have a problem with multiple EAP235-WALL's in a hotel room scenario (7 of them) 6 of these within 10 meters of distance. All of them especially the one that's not around the others give a ton of association time out failures and more than 60% dropped rate. TP-LINK support can't really find the issue and I need a fix asap. Every time I go to check the connection with my phone I connect immediately no problem but when clients connect I get many association time outs although no one is complaining (yet). I read something about a chipset counting problem but I can't find the article again. Thanks

  @btx You mean I have to put the rssi threshold at -70 for example and see what happens? Yes I don't have another option right now. Thank god I put EAP-225's in all the other rooms and they work perfectly. But I have 7 EAP-235's that are problematic and even if warranty took the back I need another similar option that's only EAP-615 wall and I don't even now if that is working fine.

  @btx Thanks a lot for the help, I will try disabling load balancing and maybe reducing power output as they are pretty close to another and I have it on high setting. The EAP's 245 are not available in Greece btw so I can't use them as an alternative 😕

You should see where your signal is at where your client sits.

 

Goto your client list and click on the three dots next to action.  Then click on signal, wireless connection, rx, and tx.

 

Look at your signal and the band youre sitting on.  If your RX/TX are low, then you will need to change the channel due to interference.  

 

This will give you an idea where to set your Mini Rssi at... I usually start at -73 on the 5ghz.  So the clients will get booted and roam to the 2.4ghz.  IF you're sitting on the edge of the 2.4, I would start at -73.  -73 is a good starting point.  

 

You can adjust the mini rssi to where you're client signal strength is at. 

I can not teach anyone anything - I can only make them think
