How to create a truly open wireless network on CT5760 controller?

Hi

 

We have a 5760 setup and a mix of 3702 and 1142 access point.

 

But, no matter what I do, I can't create a really 'open' network... I mean a non-restricted, open wireless network. Like what you get when you buy a home 50$ access point.

 

Even after disabling all restriction, clients still can't connect directly to one another.

 

I need to create this SSID for an experiment in one of our labs and they want all their options open... including multicast...

 

So, my question is: Can I make a super smart network setup to do a simple wireless network?

 

Thanks guys!

 

P.S
I can't use any other equipment from various reasons... must do it with what I have...

Hi

Here is an example for Open Auth SSID (named OPEN & WLAN-ID 2) configuration.

wlan OPEN 2 OPEN
 client vlan x
 no security wpa
 no security wpa akm dot1x
 no security wpa wpa2
 no security wpa wpa2 ciphers aes
 no shutdown

ip dhcp snooping

ip dhcp snooping vlan x

!

You need to make sure your 5760 is have basic configuration to have the proper network connectivity.

Here is a sample WLAN config on 3850 (applicable to 5760 as well)

I tried your suggestions but unfortunately it is not working... after associating two clients to that SSID, they can't reach each other by PING. (which worked when both were connected to a simple home router).

 

This is the wlan config:
