You have set up an 802.11ac wireless access point for a firm. To save money, the firm needed only one central access point in the 150-foot-long structure. Wireless connectivity drops and delayed access are reported by users at both ends of the building. What is the MOST LIKELY source of the problem?

A Low RF signal.

The most prevalent cause of intermittent connectivity troubles on wireless networks is distance. The user's signal weakens as he or she moves away from the WAP. When the signal weakens, the transmission rates fall. A more powerful transmitter, a larger antenna, focusing the signal where it is needed, or bringing the users closer are all ways to improve a low RF signal range.
