Has anyone been able to do this with a WLC, configuration guidlines say :"

"Wired guest access ports must be in the same Layer 2 network as the foreign controller."

Anyone know if Cisco is working on making this solution work on L3 aswell ?

Hi gudmundurk,

I'm not sure if they would consider it worth developing as you would have to create a tunnel between the guest vlan's gateway and the subnet that the controller is on to keep your network secure anyway. Unless someone out there knows..........

I can see this being useful if you have a VRF setup on your network for guest access on your network.

I am trying to work this out myself as my WLC sits in my datacenter and i use a VRF to handle guest access so i cannot give them L2 to the WLC.
