Mobile devices are saturating our medium sized enterprise network. Examples of these devices are iPhones,
iPads , Kindles, Droids, etc… When a device is authenticated on our APMobile wireless network and downloads updates, email, or music our Network bandwidth is consumed. Services/Applications are no longer available, such as VoIP. Basically, this is an internal DoS.
I have done some research and an example of this problem is an “ARP Storm” but currently clients obtain IP addresses form our DHCP server, which acts as a proxy for the clients and if effective against deliberate attempts to craft packets that create “ARP Storms”. In addition we configured the WLC to disable ARPunicast processing via the CLI.
Hi there .. I'm curious, did you sniff the wireless medium ? Also, if you think that arp is a cause of the problem, you may want to try arp proxy on the access point. With arp proxy the ap will respond on behalf of the wireless client. This will limit some of the traffic over wireless.
Also to be clear, is it the wireless being flooded or the wired ?
