Creating a meshed network with WLC2504 - basic setup
this is my starting point.
My goal first....is to create a meshed wireless network that will be open to the public using the above starting point.
In addition to the equipment above I have
1 - Cisco 2504 Wireless LAN controller - (7.6.120)
5 - Cisco 1602 Access Points
Then, after this network is created I would like to create a 2nd meshed network for Private employee access that would use a completely separate path to the Internet. The subnet for this private network is 10.11.144.0 / 24
Last, I would like to be able to manage this network either from the above private network or through a separate management VLAN of 192.168.100.0 / 24.
To help me figure all of this out I was using the following three config docs from Cisco.
The biggest issue I have out of the gate is latest documentation (link 2 above) is not as updated as the IOS version on the WLC2504 which is 7.6.120. So, I am forced to "wing it". The issue is, I have yet to wing it correctly.
I have a putty serial connection and a laptop IPed into the default subnet of 192.168.1.0 / 24 that the WLC2504 is using.
I have URL access via http://192.168.1.1
When I go to this URL, I am greeting through a little configuration wizard. This wizard is what I am unable to find ANY documentation.
First screen I encounter is basic:
The next series of screen shots is where the confusion arises.
screen shot 2
screen shot 3
Screen shot 4
after hitting next I am asked to apply setting which I do, that displays the following screen shot
as you see in the above screen shot, it tells me how to access the controller by going to:
as you can see from the following screen shot, I am able to ping 192.168.100.15.
however, when I attempt to access via web
Below is the current running config... I am baffled, any thoughts, anyone?
