    Hello.

    I have a rather vexing problem with an external WiFi ntwork that I'm
    troubleshooting.

    I have a wireless network for a marina that uses an antenna for a
    router, along with a couple repeaters.

    My problem is sometimes users are unable to access the network.

    When this happens, users aleady connnected will stay connected, but
    cannot connect the internet. Other users canot connect: they can see
    and attempt to connect to to the network, but not get an IP address.
    At those times I can connect directly to the router, obtain an IP
    addres and connect to the internet.

    Usually, this is resolved by rebooting the main anenna, then the
    repeaters.

    We recently changed both the main antenna and the router, but this
    still happens, after the antenna has been on a few hours.

    Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this problem?

    Thanks
