Client PCs never try to associate to AP 1231

Hi all,

I have a cisco 1231 AP that has 2 SSIDs/VLANS on it.

I am trying to test and even with my laptop with wireless card 2 feet away from the AP, it never trys to associate it.

1 vlan is PSK

Other vlan is Radius WPA

I have been debuging radius and dont see ANYTHING. No attemps no failures. It's like the AP doesn't even know I'm there and or it's ignoring me. :(

I have verified all interfaces are open.

Any and all ideas to help troubleshoot this would be helpful!

Re: Client PCs never try to associate to AP 1231

Are you broadcasting your SSID's? If not, you might want to try that to see if you detect it with your PC. If your PC does not pick them up, try using Netstumbler to verify the AP is broadcasting the SSID.

I will assume you are using Windows. You should see the network popup for the SSID using Radius and then get prompted to enter your credentials.

You will not see anything on Radius until you at least attempt to associate.
