Hello,

I haven't understood something in the Cisco documentation of the WLC 2100 series. In fact, on the data sheet it is mentioned that the WLC 2100 "Provides eight 10/100 Ethernet ports, intended to support a combination of access points and redundant LAN uplinks" while in the configuration guide it is mentioned that the WLC 2100 does not support LAG (Link aggregation). So how WLC 2100 can use a redundant uplink to the network without link aggregation?

Thank you in advance.

You can use one port for the management and ap-manager interface, and any other for a specific vlan used for your wlan ssid along with connecting access points to your WLC. this way you can say that port 1 is your management and ap-manager, port 2 is for your internal ssid vlan x, port 3 is for your voice ssid vlan x, port 4 is for guest traffic, port 5 & 6 is to connect two access points.
