I have an 4400 series wireless lan controller. I want to use and AP (IOS Based) as a repeater from LWAPP based AP. I have configured an 1131 AP as a repeater and see that it is associated with LWAPP AP. But it does not repeate SSIDs (2 SSID)
Can I configure a Cisco IOS Software-based AP as a repeater
and associate with Lightweight AP Protocol (LWAPP)-based
This configuration is not supported in Lightweight Mode;
Q. I have an existing wireless network (autonomous APs) with an access-point that is configured as a repeater. This network is to be migrated to a LWAPP wireless network. Can I use the LWAPP APs as repeaters?
A. LWAPP APs must join a controller, and they do not support a repeater mode since they all have to have some connectivity to the controller first. Cisco autonomous APs can be configured as repeaters, but due to the reduction in effective bandwidth available to end clients, repeaters are not the most highly recommended configuration. While any Cisco Aironet AP or LAP model can be used in either LWAPP or autonomous mode, in order to make that change, a software reimage is required. This is particularly complex when it goes from autonomous to LWAPP, so directly, no, an AIR-LAP1232AG-A-K9 does not natively support the repeater mode. It could be loaded with autonomous software and be made to support repeater mode, but that would involve a software change and a separate configuration.
I read this before. I am trying to do something different. Lightweight Mode AP will not work in repeater mode. It will be the root AP (Still Connected to controller) an IOS Based AP will be the repeater mode and it will repeat from Lightweight Mode AP. I think I am missing a configuration on Controller. Maybe it does not allowing to do that.
