Hi Jason

I was referring to connected clients, not passive unconnected clients who are just observing SSID’s.

I was suggesting a possible cause of UDP throughput drop could have been other wireless devices connected on to the same access point, which were moving in and out of range.

Its therefore a good idea to have some form of password based encryption to stop anyone just logging on to the access point. Hiding the SSID is one way, but its not that fool proof and makes it harder to intentionally connect new wireless clients. Setting up WPA/PSK encryption would be better.

I realise this may not have been the case in your scenario, but its one of many reasons throughout can be affected.

This becomes really topical in a multi OneMix environment where you have lots of connected clients all wondering about!

Hope this helps

Cheers
