Access Point Troubleshooting
I am noticing a bit of an issue when troubleshooting wireless problems. Having a SSID support many access points and multiple bands is common.
The issue starts with problem diagnostics, devices that only support one band (usually 2.4 GHz) will behave differently than devices that use 5 GHz. Not only is interference and channel placement a concern, but testing or isolating a band or BSSID. With some Windows WIFi card configurations, you can manually choose a band but picking a specific BSSID is almost impossible and I have tried with many 3rd party WiFi applications.
In this video, I walk you through how I figured out that a wireless router’s 2.4GHz radio was acting weird. I encourage to try and follow along if you have an Aircheck G3, or with your favorite wireless tool.
