Bandwidth should not have been an issue that caused it
Bandwidth controlled by switch individual port settings.
Wasn't too many open sessions either because that is controlled by router.
Replaced cable... which was a monoprice...no more monoprice..second one with issues.
I think it was one of the many hungry malware like apps the kids like to use today...and it could have been demanding too much bandwidth.
Which the ap shouldn't have taken the abuse... the switch should of been the one dealing with it.
Got to go
Thanks for input
Bandwidth issue unlikely to cause the issue you were seeing (unless it was totally saturated in one direction constantly, even then, one of those retries would have made it through). A bad cable could but that person also would have been seeing severe issues with their internet also. Monoprice cables are fine as long as you buy the decent (28 gauge, preferably 26 or 24) round ones. Not the flat or ultra thin ones, those are junk. Like everyone else, even their decent ones will have a bad one every now and then. Contact them and they'll send you a couple free ones.
I still think you're shooting yourself in the foot with that many APs in close proximity, a properly configured AP with isolation or separate guest SSIDs would accomplish the same thing, it is not more or less "soft" than multiple APs connecting to the same router. In fact, it would be more secure most likely.
