I am quite new to Cisco Mesh Networks. We have setup a WLC with 2 Cisco 1522AG one as aRAP and the other as a MAP. The problem we face is that Wifi clients can successfully associate to the RAP (Obtian ip address etc) but not to the MAP. We've turned client authentication off to rule out this possibility but we still face the same issue. Both APs have successfully registered with the controller. Could their be an issue with the MAP forwarding DHCP request over the Backhaul? Any assistance will be appreciated cause I'm banging my head against a wall here!
1. If authentication works on the RAP, there is no reason why it would not work on the MAP for the same SSID, so turning client authentication on or off does not change the problem.
2. Check for the controller the client RSSI and SNR values, when connecting through the MAP. What may happen is that the client signal is too weak, and the DHCP requests timeout.
It is very unlikely that the MAP differentiates UDP/DHCP packets from the others. Issue would usually more be related to client to AP signal, or MAP to RAP SNR/RSSI values... pleae check those and keep us updated...

The script should be completely self explanatory.
