4402WLC w/ 1252s & VLANS

Unanswered Question
Feb 24th, 2009

I am testing things out for our wireless deployment for our home office and multiple other sites. We currently have Vlan10 for data and 100 for voice throughout all offices over MPLS. I have the WLC on a trunk port for 10-12 and the 1252 on a trunk port for 11-12. 11 is wireless data & 12 is wireless guest data. First how does this setup sound? Is there a better way? 2nd Do i need the access points on the data vlan? Also i have the WLC and DHCP scoopes setup, but do i need multiple gateways outside of this setup? It seems to be giving me problems trying to use my main gateway multiple times on the interfaces.

You should keep your wired and wireless subnets seperated. For example;


Vlan X - Management/Ap Manager (Native Vlan)

Vlan 10 - Data

Vlan 12 - Guest

Vlan 100 - Voice


Vlan 11 - Wireless Data

Vlan 13 - Wireless Guest

Vlan 101 - Wireless Voice

The connection from the WLC to the Switch should be a dot1q trunk that only allows vlan X,13 and 1010. Add any other vlans if you have created additional dynamic interfaces.

Default gateway should always be the L3 interface of that subnet.
