I have a total of 27 LAPs on my wireless network from 17 different remote locations. All are AIR-LAP1242G-A-K9, 25 are in H-REAP mode and 2 are in LOCAL mode. I never have any issues with the LOCAL mode LAPs, they never DEREGISTER from the Controller even if connectivity to the Controller is lost, it will automatically Discover the Controller and RE register. The H-REAP mode LAPs however will DEREGISTER when connectivity is lost and will try to RE register but will fail. Debug shows failure is due to... Max retransmissions reached on AP... followed by... apfSpamProcessStateChangeInSpamContext: Down LWAPP event for AP . But when I change the mode to LOCAL, it registers successfully. Why is that and what is the fix for it?
