Since installing Extreme 3825i access points in a particular area, I have been getting complaints from a group of users (3 or more?) that they are having problems sending and receiving text messages. They also believe that they are missing incoming phone calls.
Some things to note about my configuration:
- I am running firmware 10.01.02.0038, but I am installing 10.0.1.04.011 this evening
- I have several AP's on this floor, all configured as a Site
- I am using both radios
- I use Radar and location tracking ... probably not relevant?
- I have had one of these AP's running on my desk for months. I have never lost a test message or missed a phone call
- I am aware that Apple iPhones have a feature (WiFi Calling) that sends text messages and phone calls through wireless networks when they have poor signal. But this must be enabled by the user, and the users say that it's turned off!
Can anyone think of how new access points might interfere with cell phones? I couldn't find anything in GTAK or the community here. And I am fully aware that if these access points knowingly caused cellular interference ... the FCC wouldn't allow them to be sold! But I am trying to do what I can to help these users, and they say they never had a problem until my new Extreme AP's went up.
