I have setup a Guest WLAN on 5508 WLC with web authentication, I noticed during tests that it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to complete authentication process and providing access to the client machine. My WLC is running version

Has anyone came across similar situation or can suggest a solution to this issue?

Feel free to ask if you need more details.

Well what I would do for testing is the following:

  • Remove WebAuth to see if there is an issue with connectivity on that subnet
  • Map the Guest WLAN to a working subnet or create a new SSID and map that to a known working subnet
  • If your using a custom WebAuth, try using the default internal WebAuth page to see if there is any difference
  • If your authenticating Guest using radius, check the radius logs for errors
  • Is it all devices or is it an issue with few or a certain model
