Level 1 WAP 1001 Outdoor units

Microsoft Windows Server 2003
WAP Switches
I have a situation where i have linked two warehouses with separate level 1 WAP 1001 outdoor units. one acting as an access point and the other as a client. The client is connected to a dlink switch that then feeds two dumb terminals and CCTV DVR. The Access Point is connected to another DLink switch that distributes the WIMAX signal that connects the warehouses to the HQ.

My problem is that the client unit keeps losing connection to the access point at various intervals. most of the time the connection is stable but it becomes eratic every so often.

I have tried the following:

1 . Re-terminated the connections

2. Reposition the Outdoor units

3 Run a new STP cable to the Outdoor units

4 Changed the channel to automatic selection for the two units.

I am not very sure what to check for next, but i i am suspecting external interference. Could there be any other explanation and solution to this problem?

Software/Hardware used:
DLink Switches, Level 1 WAP 1001 Outdoor units, Window 2003 server with terminal services running

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There could be some external RF interfernce. Is it possible for you the check the signal strenght as well try to using non overlapping channels to avoid some signal loss.

    Try logging the down times, and investigate what was happening at those times, if you think it is outside interference. Power fluctuations, fork lifts operation near the device etc, don't rule out human interference either.
