I'm about to deploy a WLAN-solution across 2 sites with 2 SSIDs and one 2504 controller.
Site A: 2x LAP1142, connected to the PoE ports of the controller.
Site B: 3x LAP1142, connecting to the WLC through an existing VPN tunnel between the two sites.
Now I have a quest: on site B I can't connect cables to each of the LAPs. Only one of them will be connected with an Ethernet cable (at least one has to be cabled, of course!)... My question is: is there any way to have 2 of the 3 LAPs on site B to get somehow "bridged" to the one LAP being cable-connected?
Hello Scott, as alway a big THANK YOU for your presence here :-)
Yes, I've seen that paper... as I've not yet gone through the whole paper, I'd like to ask: is this kind of setup possible with just maybe 2 APs out of 5 working in RAP-PAP (Mesh) mode? I mean, my design would be to have the 2 LAPs in site A wired, one LAP on site B wired too, but the other 2 LAPs wireless (meshed)... is this achievable?
I was wondering about the setup I realized (2 LAPs in the main site, where the WLC is, and 2 LAPs in a remote site with Mesh).
Now when I connect to WLAN in the remote site, I am obviously surfing through the main site's DSL connection.
Would there be any way to configure the remote LAPs, which are Root AP and Mesh AP, to somehow work in H-REAP mode? From what I've seen in the WLC (Firmware 7.2) the LAPs can be configured only in one of these modes at a time.
I've managed to get one RAP and one MAP to be configured and working on my WLC. I've grouped them both into an "AP Group" and created a separate SSID for them.
The MAP lies at my Desk, where I connected my Android-Phone to the SSID of this "meshed" APs. Now, looking at the Client Monitor on the WLC GUI, I see that my Phone is connected to the RAP and not (as I expected because of a stronger signal) to the MAP. Any explanation to this? Any means to check wether clients are able to connect to the MAP?
And another question: if I'd like to add an other LAP, would it be sufficient to register its MAC Address in the MAC Filter List, then power it on? Or would I need to first connect it with a cable, so that the WLC could add and configure that device?

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
