Are you encountering this problem on one or multiple devices? Are the devices all the same/similar hardware?

I've had to deal with symptoms like these several times. Mostly the issue was a faulty wifi driver on the client side. Especially when connecting to 802.1x environments early driver versions tend to mess up al lot. And people keep telling you "With my WiFi at home it works really well...". *rolls eyes*

I would recommend you open a case with the GTAC so we can take a look at the specifics of your case.

Hi Mendes, Extreme GTAC says the newer code will resolve the issue, but I have tried with the latest code, still no luck. I don't have any option now the issue exists from 4 months not yet resolved. Made a mistake going for Extreme.

Thanks for hanging in there with us Saiprasad and keeping us honest in the Hub Community. GTAC does not give up and best we work it there to ensure we do find that elusive resolution.

Luis, based on precedent here from Andre K and Saiprasad, I'd say best to follow Gareth's advice and contact GTAC about this one.
