Wireless Station MAC address

Unanswered Question
Mar 17th, 2009

Will the MAC address of a wireless station appear anywhere else on the network besides the wireless controller when deploying a centralized WLAN using LAPs?

I have this problem too.

If the ap is configured as local, then the mac will show up only in the switch the wlc is connected to. If the ap is configured for h-reap and locally switched, then the mac will show up on the switch the ap is connected to. If the ap is configured for h-reap, but is centrally switched, then it is like if the ap is in local mode and the mac address will show up on the switch the wlc is connected to.

Thanks for the reply. In addition, what about the ARP table for the wireless client (the MAC/IP pairing)? Can this be found only on the controller?
