A company has recently implemented an 802.11n wireless network. Some users are complaining that the wireless network is too slow. Which solution is the best method to enhance the performance of the wireless network?
- Replace the wireless NICs on the computers that are experiencing slow connections.
- Split the traffic between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands.
- Disable DHCP on the access point and assign static addresses to the wireless clients.
- Upgrade the firmware on the wireless access point.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Because some users are complaining about the network being too slow, the correct option would be to split the traffic so that there are two networks using different frequencies at the same time. Replacing the wireless NICs will not necessarily correct the network being slow and it could be expensive for the company. DHCP versus static addressing should have no impact of the network being slow and it would be a huge task to have all users assigned static addressing for their wireless connection. Upgrading the firmware on the wireless access point is always a good idea. However, if some of the users are experiencing a slow network connection, it is likely that this would not substantially improve network performance.
