I know it's difficult to do in a production environment but have you
experimented with different AP firmware revisions? 3.4.0 is still very
solid but some of the interim releases between there and 3.7 broke more
than it fixed. I'm not on any of their announce lists or I'd have
noticed that 4.0 dropped some time in the past month, too, but I'm wary
of trying it from my past bad experiences. Keep in mind, though, that
this is for my home LAN and I've only one SSID and one AP -- very
different from the Cisco WLAN that I manage at the office (two SSIDs) or
the network you've described. You may not have the resources to
reproduce a similar setup and Proxim's not likely to take much interest
either but I've never contacted their support staff to know either way.
