I have some demo gear that I am trying to get going for a POC and having one heck of a time working. The AP's and WLAN controller are on the same subnet and vlan as well as the dhcp server. I have a trunk going to port 1 on the controller and I have tried the internal DHCP server, a windows 2003 server with option 43 and a IOS DHCP server using option 60 and 43. The AP's get ip addresses fine, however they will not associate Now I know the 2100's are layer 3 only, but they should be able to do a layer 3 broadcast if that doesn't work use the DHCP option and then use DNS. None of these appears to work. Just wondering if there is something special about these controllers i am missing. I can ping the AP's from the controller and have a DNS entry also for the controllers. i don't have any history on the equipment. They all appear to be LWAPP since I can console in but cannot do anything on the console. Really weird.
