A possible fix for a slow, unusable Airport network
Authored by: emarmite on Jul 13, '05 11:59:33AM

Another cause for slowness in networks like these is that you may have great signal strength to either of the base stations but they do not have the best signal between them. Utilities like iStumbler can lead you into a false sense of security by giving you great reception numbers for the link between you and the base station, but if you've got a weakish signal on the boundary between the two stations then you can be sure their signal to each other won't be so good. WDS can be a two edged sword! On the bright side, at least I own some more modern wireless phones now.... ;-)
