Hello everyone. I have a mixture of R710 and R730 APs in my environment and honestly just added the R730 APs as we had such good luck with the R710.
Anyway I added the R730 APs in the areas with the most user traffic, however all my clients seem to be preferring the neighboring R710 APs
I'm also noticing on my R730 that I am getting a very high Drop and Retry Percentage: Radio 802.11b/g/n/ax 802.11a/n/ac/ax % Retries/% Drops 19.6/0.260 15.5/19.0 PHY Errors 462 112
The Drops and Retries on my R710 APs are in the .00008% compared to these.
They are all controlled by a ZoneDirector 1200 and I'm wondering if I have some settings wrong somewhere or something might be wrong with my setup. Thanks so much! If there is any more info I can get to help solve this, I'm happy to provide! Thanks!
It's my understanding the R730s act strange if you do not have adequate power. Talking with support and engineering, I've been told the R730 must have PoH/uPoE to function properly. I'm currently testing this out in my environment.
How does one move to PoH? We've got only 5 of the R730s in one site so can't justify the ICX switches. Is there an easy way to support these under PoH without a huge capital investment? We have POE+ switch but we suspect the 730s need still more power...
