AP2600 and Windows 8

Hello,

I am having a very strange problem. I have a Windows8 workstation that just won't connect to my wifi network. I have no problem with other devices.

The wifi network is a 2600 AP running in autonomous mode, version 15.2(4)JB3a. It is running wireless n in g and a band with bandselect.

SSID is WPA2 with AES (CCMP+TKIP)

The portable is a Sony Vaio SVE151G17M.

When i connect to the network with the proper key, all i get from windows is "can't connect to the network" (key is ok).

I have already tried the following:

- disabled Aironet extensions: no difference

- advertise extended capabilities: OFF: no difference

- key rotation disabled: no difference

- WMM disabled: no difference

- QOS disabled: no difference

- The SSID is broadcasted, not hidden: no difference

- Also to tackle bugid CSCua29504, the AP was upgraded to the latest  software: no difference.I upgraded anyway, although the bug notes say  that autonomous APs were not affected by it.

- I am not administrator of the PC, so updating wifi drivers is out of the question (but see below)

- i have not changed any core wifi parameters (like beacon intervals  etc)

- Ethernet encapsulation left at RFC1042, not 802.1H (not tried)

- Enable client MFP on SSID: NONE/optional/required: no difference at all.

I am out of ideas. And guess what ? As a workaround, I setup a second SSID on an old DLINK router, also wireless-n, WPA2 with AES/TKIP, no problems at all !

regards,

GN

Re: AP2600 and Windows 8

This might work fine with other vendors, but typically will not work when using Cisco equipment

SSID is WPA2 with AES (CCMP+TKIP)

You need to remove TKIP and then remove the profile on the Windows 8 machine and try again. Since you have no control of managing the device, the is your only other thing you can do.

Hello, I have the same AP

Hello, 

I have the same AP 2600 with the wireless security setting. Have you been able to remedy anything besides working on the additional AP?
