I have two Cisoc AP 1131's. One is upstairs and the other is downstairs. I am getting complaints from users that they are getting dropped from the wireless network and sometimes a user upstairs may connect to the WAP downstairs. Is there a way to control which WAP a user connects to? My company will not allow me to purchase Wireless LAN Controllers. Thanks for any help.
You should always try to hard-set them for 1, 6, or 11. The reason is that these are the only three channels that do not overlap with each other. 4 and 9 overlap very slightly.
You can do MAC-based authentication if you'd like to go that far. The problem with that is if one AP goes down, your hosts on that AP won't be able to attach to the other one. Still, it's easy enough to disable, and it might be good to do for testing purposes.
To do a simple MAC blacklist, issue the following commands in config mode:
Transferring Crash file from standby: Login to the Active WLC in HA.
From CLI: (Cisco Controller) >transfer upload datatype crash (Cisco
Controller) >transfer upload filename (Cisco
Controller) >transfer upload mode tftp (Cisco Controller) >transfer
