I tried to change the MTU on the vpn device but i does not work.
I get a MTU Path 1500 in my WLC debug message.
But the communication from the antenna to the WLC is fragmented to 1480 bytes (originaly 1506).
here are quotes from the internet :
"Note: The 1030 REAP LWAPP implementation assumes a 1500 byte MTU path between the AP and the WLC. Any fragmentation that takes place in transit due to a sub-1500 byte MTU leads to unpredictable results. Therefore, the 1030 LAP is not suited for environments, such as PPPoE, where routers proactively fragment packets to sub-1500 bytes."
"However, the minimum bandwidth restriction remains 128 kbps with the roundtrip latency no greater than 100 ms and the maximum transmission unit (MTU) no smaller than 500 bytes. "
The Join Request is used by an WTP to inform an AC that it wishes to
provide services through it.
Join Requests are sent by an WTP in the Joining state after receiving
one or more Discovery Responses. The Join Request is also used as an
MTU discovery mechanism by the WTP. The WTP issues a Join Request
with a Test message element, bringing the total size of the message
to exceed MTU.
If the transport used does not provide MTU path discovery, the
initial Join Request is padded with the Test message element to 1596
bytes. If a Join Response is received, the WTP can forward frames
without requiring any fragmentation. If no Join Response is
received, it issues a second Join Request padded with the Test
payload to a total of 1500 bytes. The WTP continues to cycle from
large (1596) to small (1500) packets until a Join Response has been
received , or until both packets sizes have been retransmitted 3
times . If the Join Response is not received after the maximum
number of retransmissions, the WTP MUST abandon the AC and restart
the discovery phase."
Fragmentation at the MAC layer is managed using the F,L and Frag ID
fields of the LWAPP message header. The LWAPP protocol only allows a
single packet to be fragmented into 2, which is sufficient for a
frame that exceeds MTU due to LWAPP encapsulation. When used with
layer 2 (Ethernet) transport, both fragments MUST include the LWAPP
