1141n multiple AP's one SSID with Radius

Answered Question

I have two 1141n APs.


I have the first one configured as a root AP using the built in Radius feature (LEAP)


I also have this thing configured using AES CCM.


My clients are connecting to it with WPA2-Enterprise, getting 144Mbps. Perfect.



The question is this second AP.


How do I set it up so my users can wander semlessly between the two AP's?

Do I need to config it with the Radius feature as well?  That would be a pain


Any help would be great!

Hi,


All you need to do is configure the second AP to point to the first one IP address as its Radius serveur but bear in mind that if you do so and the primary AP fails, the second cannot authenticate users because the Radius seveur will be unvailable!

Configuring the two AP's to backup each will of course be tedious but a more resilient approach.

Gotcha, and the only downside to that would be by entering the radius creditials on both devices

correct?

I cant get ap2 to talk to ap1(radius server)


My client is connecting to ap2 just fine but gets a username and password popup.



ap1 logs are showing rouge ap entries.



On ap2, do I add the ap1 ip address in the server manager settings or the Local Radius Server settings?
