What are the models of your AP's?

Is this the ONLY client using "B"?

- AP model is 1121g

- This client is support B only (old notebook model).

Are there any "B" clients successfully associated?

Is the b/g radio enabled on the WLC?

Have you tried to use other notebooks to use the "B" to associate or identify (using Netstumbler)?

How about other AP's?

Can other clients associate using the "B" radio? Have you tried it?

All of APs are controlled with Wireless controller. It's not autonomous system.

On the controller, try setting just the 1 & 2 Mbps speeds as mandatory.

Be sure that the radio policy in your WLAN definition is set to 802.11b/g.

You aren't using WPA2/AES encryption, are you? Old 802.11b clients won't support that.
