Remote Wireless Clients - Local Network Communication

Unanswered Question
Aug 17th, 2007

I have several Cisco 1130ag AP's at remote offices and a 4402 controller at our Corporate location. Does anyone know what happens to the wireless clients when connectivity between the two sites is down? Do the wireless clients get a local IP address instead of a IP address from our Corporate DHCP server. Non wireless clients at our remote offices currently use DHCP.

I have this problem too.

If connectivity back to the controller is down, then the AP's would also be down.

If you use H-REAP, then you would have the ability to configure a local SSID and specify a local DHCP server to use locally until the connection was again brought back up. Then the AP would automatically see the controller and switch back to using the controller and it's settings.

Doc on H-REAP:
