Disconnection issue

Hello Team,

       please I need your assistance on an urgent case, as recently, we have installed fortiAPs on our network, and all things are good but some users are facing an issue that the connection on their laptops keeps disconnected for 30 sec to 1 minute and then it returns to connect again, which affecting their work and productivity, has anyone faced this issue before


Hi BlueP

Which firmware versions are you using?

Keep in mind using the mature/recommended versions is always the good solution for almost all issues.

FW: 6.4.7


Hello BlueP, Is FAP 231F also on 6.4.7?  FOS: 6.4.7 is old and would recommend to upgrade to the latest.


Hi @BlueP ,

May i know if the issue happend to:
1. Anyone connected to that 1 FortiAP.?

2. Only specific PC that connect to that 1 FortiAP?
3. Or it happend to any user that connect to that FortiAP?

Is FortiAP and LAN user sit on same VLAN? If the issue only happend to FortiAP and LAN is good, most likely FortiAP configuration issue. DHCP, Ip conflict, VLAN, etc.

Certainly, network disconnection issues can be frustrating. Check for possible interference, update firmware, and review configurations on FortiAPs xiaomi
