AP Rogues 'On Network'

We see several Rogue APs in our network which are, according to WCS, not 'On Network'. However, most of them do turn out to be 'On Network': their MAC address appears as connected&active in a switch port. I wonder if this is because the 'On Network' status is never re-examined after first detection? Any suggestions?

How is the MAC active on a switchport but not on your network?

Re: AP Rogues 'On Network'

The Rogue's MAC is active on a switchport, HENCE the Rogue is 'on the network'. But WCS says it's not on the network. How come?

Re: AP Rogues 'On Network'

A couple of questions

1) What LWAPs are you using

2) Have you enabled Rogue Location Discovery protocol

3) Have you configured dedicated Rogue detector LWAPs

4) Have you got legacy Autonomous APs on your network

1) 1130AG's.

2) Yes.

3) No, and that's the answer to my problem: I didn't know (but do know now) that Rogues On Network can only be detected by LWAPs in Rogue Detector Mode.

4) No.

So, my problem is solved.

Forgive me but are we talking about plain Rogue AP or Rogue AP on Network Wire?
