Access Points report half duplex in CDP Neighbors

Hi


We are currently converting our AP's to light AP's - using a 5508 controller. I just noticed that when I check an AP, under Access Point Details, CDP Neighbors, it correctly reports the switch it's connected to, with the right port. But under "Duplex" it says Half Duplex?

It seems to do this for all AP's. I have checked both an 1121, 1131 and 1141. When I check the connected port on the switch it says Full Duplex.


Is this a display issue or something I should examine further?

Regards,

Kaj

Hi Kaj,

If you are seeing that the 5508 is reporting Half Duplex but the switch says Full duplex, then I remembered reading somewhere that this is an "un-documented feature" (aka a bug).

Re: Access Points report half duplex in CDP Neighbors

Leo is correct. There is a bug that causes this. It will also eventually cause the controller to lock up. On a 2106 this happens much more often due to the lower amount of memory and processor power. TAC suggests that you hard code the switch to 100 meg full but I have seen that his has no real effect.

Hi


I'm not sure I understand this advice. If I hardcode the swithc to full duplex auto negotiation will not work (?) - so I will also have to set the AP to full duplex. I don't see that is possible anywhere?

Hardcode the speed and duplex setting at the switch will do fine.  You "won't" be able to do so on the AP or WLC side because of the bug.
