We recently received a CISCO SRP527W exchange router from Cisco following the failure of the orginal SRP527W. The Router has been configured with two Wireless SSID's to allow segregation of the types of system/users we have.
History - I recently added the 2nd SSID and reconfigured the original SSID to re-assert control of the Wireless connection to the business. It worked nicely - Windows x, Android and Iphone devices have all been stopped connecting and required the new credentials etc to be entered.
One SSID is for internal business systems, and allows access to the Servers and infrastructure inside the organisation. The second SSID has its own DHCP server and allows clients to access the web and nothing else.
Tonight we had a person come to our establishment to give a presentation using his macbook. To our amazement the Macbook has connected without challenge to the SRP527W. In his Wifi settings it showed both our Wifi SSID's as unsecured.
As a test I deleted the wifi config from our Windows 7 Laptop and attempted to connect - it was rejected as expected, and the same result was experienced with my Android phone - it was denied access until the key was entered.
The Wireless Setup for both SSID's is Identical with the exception of the SSID (obviously) and the Key
- Cisco SRP527W
- Firmware version 1.01.23
- Security mode - WPA2 Personal
- WPA Algorithms - TKIP+AES
- SSID's x 2)
- WPA Shared keys - are 30 chars long (Aphanumeric)
- WPS - Disabled
Has anyone experienced this very uncomfortable event, or does anyone know if this is an issue that has been seen before.
I have upgraded the firmware since to V1.01.29 - but dont have a macbook to test if this has fixed the issue. It has completely undermined the trust I had in the SRP - having deployed these to a number of locations for the same reason anyone chooses Cisco.
