WLC problem.


I have an AP 1240AG that I am converting from IOS to LWAPP.

I have a WLC 2125 that I what to used with this AP.

I see that I can associate the AP with the WLC.

The problem is like this, when I tried to use a Wireless Client to associate to the network I cannot do that.

What I see is that the wireless client detects the SSID from the AP, but I cannot associate.

I see too, in the “sst” tool form Cisco that the RF link is constantly up and down in my Wireless client…???

I take some logs that I send. Someone can tell me what is going on?

I cannot anther stand this? Can you?

Someone can help me? Please?

Thanks in advance,

Re: WLC problem.

If I'm not mistaken it looks like the conversion (from autonomous to LWAP) process was done incorrectly.

Re: WLC problem.


Looks like you need to correct the port duplex issue on your switch and a DHCP issue.

Re: WLC problem.

I already have done that.

I change switch and tomorrow I will do my tests.

One thing about the conversion from IOs to LWAPP.

If I'm not mistake, when I do that kind of conversion, and if that same conversion is not well done, I cannot join my WLC.

I'm correct or not?

In case I configure a internal DHCP scope in the WLC, what have I to do to have my clients to get a IP from that scope?

Thanks in advance,

Re: WLC problem.

If i am understand you correctly, if you use the controller as a DHCP server, then you need to point your wired interface for your SSID to the managment IP of the controller handing out the DHCP...

If you have a bad upgrade, correct highly unlikely your AP will join the controller.
