Unanswered Question
Jan 2nd, 2008


We are having internet connection and internet router ( 1841 ) is connected via swicth to Aironet swicth for wireless connectivity.

What is required is that any general LAPtop with wireless card will be able to conennect to Aironet Swiitch and access the internet. We are able to connect using a ethernet. ( laptop gets a IP address , def. gateway , DNS ) from DHCP which is running on router. But how to do it for wireless card. Is there any default SSID which can be used to just conenct. Just like in Hotels , or Central Park in NewYork !! You have laptop and you are connected to internet!

Any configuration example please share .

Any link on is highly appreciable.

Thanx in advance


I have this problem too.

Just create a simple SSID with any name and try associating clients to it. By default access point will forward the DHCP broadcast to the wired side. Make sure on the client the option , Obtain IP address automatically is chosen on the Wireless Card on TCP/IP .
