Hi Friend.


I have a solution of 44 APs Cisco 1131 AG, and I have 2 WLC 4402, In both WLCs I have been configured 6 WLAN for each service that I have. All these WLANs don't have to make a SSID Broadcast, I wan to bind the SSID, but when into the WLAN configuration I put SSID Broadcast disable. with my laptop I can not joint to the APs??. Only when I put the Broadcast SSID enable I can connected?? How can I fix this issue??


Best Regards.

Are you configuring the profile on your laptop when the ssid is not broadcasting? If you disable broadcast on the ssid, you will not see the ssid when using windows zero or any 3rd party configuration tool. If you do have the ssid configured on the device but can't associate to the ssid, then I would look at updating your driver on your device. Then see if that helps.

Actually, I don't think that is required anymore. Have you looked over this guide?

Do you have more than one WLC 4402? If so, do you have your mobility up and running? Also do you have QoS configured on the WLC and on the infrastructure?

1st of all, you need to configure the mobility groups. This way all devices will roam properly and will not drop a connection when a device roams from an ap on one wlc to an ap on the other wlc.


What code are you running on the wlc and what ap's do you have?


Here is a link on how to configure mobility groups:

Here is a link to the 7921 Deployment guide. This will guide you to the settings you need on the wlc:

Did you set up you QOS settings on your switch ports to the Ap's, To the Controller, To Call manager, Trunk Links.

per the configuration Guide.


Are you using a separate WLAN & vlan for your wireless voice phones from your wired phones and wired data.


Are your phones on 2.4 or 5 Ghz. If you can it is better to deploy them in 5 Ghz.


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/solutions/Enterprise/Mobility/emob41dg/ch9_Voic.html


Also do you have configured:

switch(config)#port-channel load-balance src-dst-ip
