I am having difficulty joining a 1552 AP to the 5508 WLC. I am using the 3750 switch attached to the WAP as a DHCP server for the AP points.
The AP obtains a IP address from the DHCP server, however fails to join the WLC. i can telnet to the AP and ping the WLC and from the WLC i can ping the AP.
I am a little stumped on where to go next.
Is the port of the switch in trunk mode, which is the WLC connected to?
I used az internal DHCP of the WLC...
Notice: Take care about the setting of the region code, because it has to be compatible with the AP (you can find the nr. on the back of it, and you can see in its guide, which region code is compatible with that), but before you change it you have to turn the radio's off in WL settings...
i did not know you could use the internal dhcp server of wireless controller to provide access to AP. I belived that DHCP server for management was required to be external
1552 are APs that don't have a local mode, they operate in Bridge mode. In order to connect that AP to the WLC add their MAC address in to Security-AP Policy. Ensure that date/time are correct on the WLC.
Hi glad, does this include the RAP. I have added both the device mac and the mac of the bvi in port of the device to the mac table . Still unable to connect.
Yes it does. RAP will get the IP address from the WLC but not join where is MAPs will not get even the IP (as they are not allowed to associate).
No need for the BVI address, just the MAC of the AP as written on its side or copy+paste the MAC address from the DHCP lease list.
Check the time - it has to be actual time, not something in 1900 as the WLC defaults to.
Thankyou Vlad, I will give this a try. I do have the current time set however the mac address listed in dhcp differs from that on the side of the ap.
