Hi Hitesh,


The 4400 WLC is an appliance that attaches to your network but does not function like a router. There must be a Layer 3 device to route packets between VLANs. The WLC maps the SSID of the clients to the VLAN subnet and puts them back out on the management interface for the upstream routers to route packets.
