Cisco 1231 not associating client PCs

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!

Make sure the SSIDs are exactly the same (including capitalization and leading / trailing spaces)

Otherwise, post your (sanitized) AP config.

Scott,

Thanks for the help.

SSIDs are exactly the same as in my client.

I can't even see the SSIDs in my 'scan networks' in my client with the AP 6 inches away.

How can I braodcast my SSIDs just to test?

---------------------------------------

Vlan 64 = management

Vlan 80 = employee

vlan 160 = guest

Sanitized config attached...

Hi Sean,

To add a note to Scott's good info;

In order to enable guest mode (Broadcast SSID) on an SSID, type this command on the AP in global configuration mode:

Ap#dot11 ssid ssid-string

Ap#guest-mode

From this doc;

Hope this helps!

Rob
