So I’m finally “caught up” a bit with the insanity that’s usually the first couple of weeks of school starting and I’m looking into trying some new things to make things run a bit better around here. I’m running 425 APs or so on a Cisco 5508 controller running 7.5. My question to you folks, what’s the best tweaks that you’ve ever done? Feel free to add things that are for your particular situation or system or for things that are system non-specific. Even if it doesn’t help me, maybe it will help someone else out there.

Thanks in advance!

Bruce, 
Did you guys go all the way and enable 802.11r as well?  (Make - before - break roaming)

If you did, did you have any older device's not tolerate the changes to the TLV's?

(Make - before - break roaming) No. Given the warnings in the document we decided to not enable 802.11r yet, especially not during the chaos during the beginning of the semester. > If you did, did you have any older device's not tolerate the changes to the TLV's? We didn't want to create extra SSIDs and confuse people. If others find that the older devices tolerate the changes we could try enabling 802.11r some summer. > Mike > > >
