APs associated with WLC 4.2, Radio interface going down

Hi,

I have 3 access points associted with a WLC running version 4.2.130.0, all of them have the interfaces going down and UP all the time.

Everything is fine when all sudenly the wireless user lost connection.

I have monitored the logs and have ssen the radio interfaces on the APs are going down and UP for no reason.

How are they being powered?

Via power injector.

I've suspected of it and chenged the power supply to direct AC power source.

Lest's see if it works.

When you use power injectors it's worth setting the power settings on the controller. Set it to power injector state.

I have found that AP's will join the controller but their radios will not power unless you set this.

I had it already set when the problem was ocurring. To take out any doubt about PoE I pluged it direct AC power on AP but it keep droping the users.

I set up an syslog server and the messages are like this:

Do you have rogue containment enabled?

Can you post the message logs from the WLC?

It might also be worth upgrading the WLC code to the latest version.

Re: APs associated with WLC 4.2, Radio interface going down

Hi, yes, I have rogue containement enabled, and it's already in the latest version, 5.1.151.0.

Here is the logs. The message logs is set to debug on wlc.

In you WLAN configuration, have you set DHCP required? Are the Clients IP's static or DHCP?

Bronze

Re: APs associated with WLC 4.2, Radio interface going down

There is two SSIDs, one with DHCP required the other no.

In both of them the IP assignement should be through DHCP (internal in wlc), but only one is marked as required.
