  • Radio interference
  • Misconfiguration
  • Root bridge doesnt have access to authentication server.

1 .  To address radio and antenna issues, refer to Troubleshooting Problems Affecting Radio Frequency Communication.

2.  If authentication must be reconfigured, refer to the appropriate manual:

340/350 Series Bridges - Security Setup

1300 Series Bridge - Refer Configuring WEP and WEP Features and Configuring Authentication Types

1400 Series Bridge - Configuring WEP and WEP Features  and  Configuring Authentication Types

3.  Check the connectivity between the root bridge and Radius server. For Radius server configuration on root bridge refer Configuring RADIUS and TACACS+ Servers

Note: Refer appropriate models software configuration guide for more information.
