1131 Not Joining controller

Unanswered Question
Feb 25th, 2009

I am getting the following message on my 4404 (running 4.2.61).

We currently have 48 APs associated to it.

We do not have aggressive load balancing enabled.

I did a search on the error message below but I was not able to find much info about it on cisco or in these forums. Everything I have found points to load balancing accross WLC. Anyone experience this issue?

I have this problem too.

Cisco controllers have a rather odd design restriction. No more than 24 APs can be on any physical port. Since you have a 4404, you must only have two ports connected to your network. As such, you cannot exceed 48 APs as it stands.

You can bypass this restriction by configuring LAG on the ports, or by simply connecting a new physical port to the 4404.

Hopefully that helps,

Jeff

Thanks Jeff. I will connect another port on the 4404 and see what happens. I'll post back with my results.
