Thanks Gays,

Seems the configuration already using the suggest one. It still having the problem. Also many people report Apple device unable to join or always disconnect to Cisco Wireless network. Did anyone have some more tips on it? Or Cisco haven't any idea to fix it??

Hi Cassian,

I was a beta tester for 7.5 and the 11ac module. What exactly is your issue. Maybe I can help ..

Re: Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless n

I see a few things ..
1. Turn off 802.11r
2. Select a single encryption wpa tkip or wap2 aes ..
3. Don't check box cckm

Then try it

Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless netwo

If i disable the 802.11r, Apple ipad will have roaming issue. Any more input?

Re: Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless n

Most devices don't support 802.11r today. This may be the cause of your issue. Disable it and see. If it is and you need 802.11r then you would need to add another WLAN.

But the other mentions I said are all valid as well amd will cause issues with apple devices including macs.

Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless netwo

My site only have Apple device, so which configuration is the best for me??

Re: Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless n

Apple downs support cckm on any device so disable that. 802.11r only works for devices that support it and since not all apple devices do disabled it. Apple and other clients are known to have issues when dual encryption is set. Choose wpa2 aes and not wap tkip or the other way around ..

Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless netwo

Thanks for your information. But the iPad using IOS 6 don't support CCKM.

Re: Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless n

No apple devices support cckm. In fact when enabled some apples won't connect becuase it can not negotiate cckm ..

Re: Re:Apple mac book unavailable to connect to Cisco Wireless n

That's interesting .. I'm in my lab and with you settings my Mac won't connect .. I remove cckm she connects ..

If your saying it's working with the config you showed that sounds odd to me ..
