in most of the cases rogue ap's do use the 2.4 GHz frequency, try to configure yours on the 5.0 GHz and see if that helps

I don't understand this. The WLC has Dynamic Channel Assignment enabled by default so you shouldn't be making any changes.

WHY are you not able to connect?

WHAT are the alarms on the WLC logs?

Have the following questions:

1. Have you checked your Emergency Image Version? It says "Error". Not a good sign.

2. What's going on with your Contoller Configured Country? You have "Multiple Countries:MX,AT,IN,HK,NZ,PA,DO,CA,PH,AR,PE". Nail this down to your country FIRST because this could be causing your problem.

Hi Satya,

You are confusing me. In your first post, you entered "I am not able to connect to my network". Now, you are saying "my controller is not able to set the channels becouse the rauge ap's are also having same chennels".

Can you please specify which of the two is your problem?

Y'know what? I think we got off the wrong foot here.

Have you tried to set your WLC with NO Authentication and see if your clients are able to successfully Associate/Authenticate?

If not, I recommend you try it.

When your clients are able to Associate/Authenticate successfully using OPEN Authentication, you can start piling up the security stuffs.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
