why does management VLAN ID matter in Cisco AP541n configuration?

is working on configure AP541n AP,  is able to connect to the AP wired, assign AP static IP with proper subnet mask & default gateway,

when it's done, everything looks perfectly, but since I changed the management VLAN ID from 1 to 2, I can't even connect to the AP wired from the PC, why does the change matter?

thanks.

Re: why does management VLAN ID matter in Cisco AP541n configura

Hi,

When working with access points in IOS mode also known as autonomous the access point requiers that you configure an Ip address on the BVI1 which is linked to the bridge group 1 and set us untagged.

Now when working with VLANS if the access point has an ip address on vlan x then you will need to confiugre this as the native vlan and with the bridgroup 1.

If you do not do this then you will see the issue you are reporting.

In other words if the access point will have an ip address for vlan 30 the the native vlan on the ap will need to be vlan 30 and vlan or the subnet for vlan one linked to the bridge group 1

You need to use the native vlan as management. Management traffic should not be sent in tagged frames.
