I'm trying to create a testing wlan and here's my scenario. I could successfully test my wlan using just the basic setup and all worked out well. I could connect WLC on WCS and connected ap1232g on the available port and all ran smooth as planned just by playing safe in same subnet and without creating any vlans or using switches.
My problem started when I brought out my WLC box and connected on c2950 switch. The switch itself seemed to be fine and already configured with ports assigned to separate vlans. But no matter how I tried/reset, I noticed that neither WLC box nor the switch doesn't have link status light come up on the assigned port. Now, I'm stuck at that point that wlc won't even get connected to switch and have a feeling I'm not even supposed to be putting/using WLC box on c2950 or I need to configure those boxes other way around.
should it be like this?
wlc-interfaces (VLAN) ---trunk--> c2950 ---> network ---> APs
I will be waiting for your reply and please let me know if you need more info for the setup.
Thanks in advance.
First can you please confirm to which port on 2950 you are connecting your controller? If it is not a gig port then link will not come up. WLC have SFC module which is 1000 base and it will only come up if it gets connected to 10/100/1000 or some gig port.
Also once link is up you have to configure 2950 port as trunk port to make your unified wireless network up and running.
