Any issues with Chromebooks? We're seeing a few cases come in, but nothing definitive yet.

Checking in with Google, there appear to be some pervasive wifi issues with Chromebooks - particularly the Samsung models. Note that we don't support ChromeOS specifically with Zero-IT (yet).

I had an issue with Chromebook having problem connecting when a wlan service was broadcast on both 2.4 and 5 GHz band. Putting a "Chromebook" wlan service on either band resolved the issue.

Note the issue appeared in the last Chromebook OS update a month or so back, about April/May time frame.

I see an issue where LENOVA Chrome books running chrome version 25.0.1364.97 were not able to connect to any WLAN ( with or without authentication)

Creating a WLAN with only 2.4Ghz helped to connect to 2.4Ghz! Still they were not able to connect with WLAN only with 5Ghz.

Updating to the BETA channel which runs chrome software version
28.0.1500.35 RESOLVED the Issue. Lenovo Chrome books got connected to 5Ghz as well.

We are using the Acer C710 series Chromebook. We are getting a lot of:

Network Connection Error
Failed to connect to network "our SSID": DHCP lookup failed.

Connecting to both an open SSID and one with a pre-shared key. Seems to affect us mostly when using the 7962 AP's, and not as much on the 7982's.

Our firmware is on 9.5.1, but we'll try updating to 9.6.1 on Friday to see if that helps.

@Todd

We get the same issue with 7962s and Chrome OS. They are able to connect to 7363s with no issues. I have updated the FW to 9.6.0.0 build 267 with no change. Doesn't matter if it's Open authentication and no encryption or if its Open with encryption. Doesn't matter. I have a case open with Ruckus right now and I have provided them some debug information. Hopefully we find a fix soon.

Seeing a ton of disconnects and roaming from Chromebooks,, Acers.

They also tend to say the connection was refused. ZD 1100 with zoneflex 7372.

With build 9.6.0.0 build 267, we disabled the 5Ghz on the 7962s and we did see some improvement, however, we upgraded to 9.6.1.0 build 15 and was able to turn on 5Ghz again. Everything seems to be working as intended. Will update again shortly.

9.6.1 should correct these connection issues with 7962.

What about the 7372s? What is the ETA?

Yours is the first report. so not sure it's the same issue. 7962 and 7372 are substantially different hardware. I would recommend opening a support case.

We are seeing very slow download speeds on our Samsung S5 (303C) Chromebooks. MacBook will gets consistent 80 Mbps up and down and a Chrombook will see less than 20 Mbps down and 60+ up?

I'm experiencing issues with the Samsung model Chrome book and the ZF7363's. Placed a case id to evaluate the config/situation. It's not an issue with connecting to the SSID but when 19 of the Chromebooks connect and use the internet is where the performance starts degrading rapidly. My macbook pro is connected via WiFi to the same AP and not 1 packet drops or goes above 30ms.
