Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Hi,

I've implemented a WLAN using WLC 5508 and 3602e APs with ISE and Prime Infrastructure to manage. I have implemented the CleanAir Configuration Templates and deployed to the Controllers but now the Motorola Scanners can't see the WLAN, they can see other WLANs but not this one.

I'm struggling to find a reason why they can't see it, has anyone got any ideas?

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Well what are the requirements for the Motorola Scanners?  ISE and Prime will not have any affect on this unless your are using 802.1x on the scanners and the authentication is failing.  Post your show wlan and also post the other show wlans that these scanners see?  Maybe its because you don't have the SSID broadcasted.

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Hi Scott,

I am using 802.1x and the authentication method for the scanners is WPA2-Enterprise with MS Chap v2, however, they don't get that far becasue they can't see the WLAN SSID. The other SSID they can see are non Cisco

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

You need to uncheck TKIP. Since your using WPA2, you need to enable AES. This is a IEEE standard. When using WPA v1, you use TKIP only. Don't mix or match or have both defined. Devices only can do one type. So match the encryption with what your device is using.

(WPA/WPA2)............. Enabled
WPA (SSN IE)............................... Disabled
WPA2 (RSN IE).............................. Enabled
TKIP Cipher............................. Enabled
AES Cipher.............................. Enabled

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Thanks.

Unfortunaltely the scanners still can't see the broadcast SSID, any ideas?

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Can you phone or laptop connect to the ssid? What is the encryption you have configured on the Motorola scanner? When you say the scanners can see the other SSID's, these other SSID's are in the WLC also right? Your not a mixed environment.

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

The other SSIDs are not on the WLC they are other companies in the area. Yes I can see it and connect to it from my phone and laptop.

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

So please provide more info... has this been working at all or is this a new setup for that location.  If you can connect to that ssid from a laptop, well you configuration on the scanner is wrong.  Start to eliminate things one by one.

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

Yes this was working fine, the scanners could see the network and authenticate correctly, today they dont't see the network.

I can only think that it's the cleanair stuff that's stopped it but I can;t see how.

Motorola Scanners can't see Cisco WLAN

On the controller CLI do:

>show client detail

Do you see anything ?
