I have a 1242 running 12.4(10b)JA, I would like it to operate as a repeater from a WLC with 4 AP's in LAP mode.
I am having problems getting it to work, as soon as I enable it as a repeater, I lose contact with it.
Is this configuratuion supported ?
I am using WPA2 personal encryption on the WLAN, the deployment guide scg12410b.pdf doesn't mention using encryption on the repeater, though I have tested both ways. I have reset the unit many times and followed the set up by the letter from command pronpt, but still no joy.
Can anybody please offer any advice.
I did read your other post and I must apologize if the answer didn't make sense (sorry about that:)
I am saying that your last statement is correct. You can only "repeat" from Autonomous or "Fat" AP's.
This line is key;

I wish this wasn't so!
