If the security settings do not match. Check for the presence of other devices in the area that operate on the 2.4 GHz band. check the following: How far is the PC from an access point? Is the PC out of the planned coverage area (BSA). Click the Approach button in the figure. They are repeated here in the context of the WLAN: Step 1 . check the following: Confirm the network configuration on the PC using the ipconfig command. If there is no connectivity. check the security mode and encryption settings on the client. the client cannot get access to the WLAN. Data from these devices can cause interference in the WLAN and intermittent connection problems between a client and access point. This helps to eliminate any issues that you may be able to resolve yourself. baby monitors. Try to determine the severity of the problem. Verify that the PC has received an IP address via DHCP or is configured with a static IP address. wireless security systems. reload drivers and firmware as appropriate for the client device. The client software should detect the appropriate channel as long as the SSID is correct. working up the TCP/IP stack from the Physical layer to the Application layer. If necessary. You should already be familiar with the first three steps of the systematic troubleshooting approach from working with 802.A Systematic Approach to WLAN Troubleshooting Troubleshooting any sort of network problem should follow a systematic approach. . Confirm that the device can connect to the wired network. If the PC of the user is operational but is performing poorly. Connect the device to the wired LAN and ping a known IP address. It may be necessary to try a different wireless NIC.Eliminate the user PC as the source of the problem. If the wireless NIC of the client is working.3 Ethernet LANs. microwave ovens. and potentially rogue access points. Check the channel settings on the client. Examples of other devices are cordless phones.

use the wired LAN to see if you can ping devices including the access point. begin investigating the performance of the access point. Check the power status of the access point. working from physical possibilities to application-related ones. perhaps something is wrong with the access point or its configuration. a process of elimination is recommended. Are all the devices actually in place? Consider a possible physical security issue. When the access point settings have been confirmed. which is explained next.Inspect links. When you have reached the point where you have eliminated the user PC as the problem. try to connect to a different access point.Step 2 . You may try to install new radio drivers and firmware. If connectivity still fails at this point. If the physical plant is in place.Confirm the physical status of devices. Is there power to all devices. and are they powered on? Step 3 . if the radio continues to fail. and also confirmed the physical status of devices. . Inspect links between cabled devices looking for bad connectors or damaged or missing cables. As you troubleshoot a WLAN.
