Please ensure that:
1.The wireless access point is not in close proximity to a source of interference,e.g a microwave transmitter or microwave oven. 2.Ensure that it's not placed in an area prone to physical obstruction, e.g behind a high wall or where people pass through(because our bodies have water which absorbs such waves!).In that case, re-position the wireless access point to another area, e.g a roof top. 3. If the wireless access point is in vicinity of other wireless access point, ensure that CSMA (Collision Sense Multiple Avoidance) scheme is enabled for the device.
I hope these solutions solve your problem. Have a great time ahead.

There is issue of low signal strength showing in Cisco Aironet 1131. how to resolve it?

Signal strength can have a lot to do with where the router is compaired to where you sit at your pc/ laptop. If you have a house with thick walls you should go for a N type router rather than the G (standard router type). but a simple way to boost signal is to put a pice of tinfoil behind the anntenae of the router, directing the signal to where your computer is and not letting it just dissipate into the walls of the house in all directions.
hope this helps, but remessage if I have not been clear enough ;)

Cisco 1242ag broadcast multi SSID issue

It stops broadcasting the SSID? Make sure it's configured to broadcast the SSID firstly... secondly, test whether it is actually working but just not broadcasting the SSID.

Set a client PC to the same SSID and get all the parameters identical (encryption, user/pass etc). Try connecting again. If it connects then it's just the SSID that isn't working... if there is no joy, then it is just the SSID that isn't broadcasting, not the whole AP.

Also, enable some debugging for the radio0 while it is not working. It might shed some light.
