AP250 connection drops

we have changed our old WLAN infrastructure from 3rd party to Aerohive.
We are using the 51 AP250 in 3 locations and would like to expand this, but we have a problem in our main facility with this APs.

All clients (Notebooks, IOS and Android Phones,...) get connection interrupts. 
Our drop rate in the 2,4GHz is between 20-40% and above in some areas.

This problem also appears without moving the device (Roaming).

I ́ve found another case in the community
but Mu-Mimo is disabled and tx-beamforming also.

A HiveOS-Upgrade to 8.2r1 on the HiveManager and the APs didn ́t help.

A site Survey was made but nothing could be identificated for this issues.

Has anbody an idea how I can troubleshoot this?

Best regards

Can you ssh into one of the APs and issue a show log buff and look to see if you see any logs that look similar to the following:

err     kernel: [fe]: exceed maximum number of IP sessions [8191] allowed, per 80000

If possible, you could also include the output of the show log buff and we could take a look at things. Even better if you could correlate a timestamp from those logs to when a user is having issues.

Are you using a static channel plan or ACSP?  If you are using ACSP tell it to scan only when clients are not connected.

sorry for the delay and thanks for your feedback.

@ Brian Powers: Yes, I can connect via ssh but my log is not showing anything with "exceed maximum number of IP sessions..."

@Dennis Hamman: I use ACSP. I will change the setting now and we will see.

Thanks again for your support!
