I have a wireless network in a ring topology. I am running ospf on my network and it works great for the most part but I am having an issue with my ap that is 5 hops in either direction around the ring back to the core router. The equal costs causing that ap to have 2 gateways for the default route and all the clients on that ap have terribly intermittent service. Web pages not loading or partially loading, an ok connection at times and no connection at others.
I assume that it because packets can't decide which route to take, but then again what does it matter which route they take to their destination as long as they get there? Or is it possible that they are arriving out of order which is causing errors?
Looking for answers on why this happens and the best way to fix it.
