WCS WEP limitations

Hello,

I am currently in the process of migrating our AP's to LWAPP and utilizing WCS. During the "migration" I noticed that a few of our client laptops are unable to connect to the AP's. After researching this I found out that our WEP keys for two seperate VLANs are identical. Additionally, they also both use key index=1.

At first I was configuring the WLANs on our WISMs and didn't see the error message, but when I went back through WCS I noticed the problem.

I also have a third WLAN with a unique WEP key, but it also uses key index=1 and after testing a few clients I receive the same error message and no clients are able to connect to the LWAPP AP's.

Has anyone seen this before? Is there a "painless" work around? Or, has anyone worked through a similar migration?

Thanks,

Kendall

Well with the key index=1 on the WLC, you must verify that the key index on the client side is 1 also. If you leave the ssid open with no security, can you associate, get and IP and surf the net?
