Cisco Wireless :: 1552 Outdoor AP Disappears From WLC5508
Dec 30, 2012
My problem ist that i have 4 air-cap-1552e APs witch are powerde trugh Power Injectors. They worked fine for a few days but then the controller (188.8.131.52) lose connection to them. Right now i have only one Joined AP. The other 3 are status not joined. I can Ping all 4 Aps and wifi clients are connected through them.
Client has existing 1522 outdoor access points over different branches.1522 is dicontinued and 1552 is the replacement AP.Client intends to extend their outdoor wireless with the new AP's.Are there any known issues if the 1552 is mixed with 1522 envi?,Is a separate controller required for the new AP's?Will MESH work between 1522 and 1552 AP's?
I want to start implementing a small outdoor mesh network of 3 APs Aironet 1550 in order to grow afterward with more APs. Is there any way to configure those 3 APs in an outdoor mesh configuration (for example, only one RAP and two MAPs) without a Wireless LAN Controller or I have to have at least, one WLC? My idea is to have a WLC 5508, but at the very beginning I don't know if my budget is gonna allow me to cost the WLC.
I am testing a Cisco 1552 and cannot seem to set it to use the 40 MHz channels. In the controller GUI is is set to use 40 MHz channels under DCA for 802.11a but when I go into the CLI and show the config of the AP it shows the channel width to be 20 MHz. If I try to change the channel width through the CLI I get "radio is not disable or ap not set to customize" or something like that. The radio is disabled globally and locally. Is there a way to set the AP or radio to a "customize" mode?
What prompted this was I was testing the throughput on it and can only get a 130 mbps data rate connection to it. The data sheet says it will support 300 mbps with the 40 mhz channel so I was trying to test it atteh higher rate.The HW is a Cisco 4402 with 7.0.230 software on it, 1552E.
I have configured a 1552, that is wired to network, as "Bridge" then "RootAP".
After reboot, I can see a MAP trying to join the network, in the "simple" logs of the controller : "Mon May 6 17:29:43 2013 Mesh Node '04:da:d2:1f:4d:6f' failed to join controller, MAC address not in MAC filter list."
As I have done for the RAP, I enter this MAC address in the MAC Filtering area under Security tab. But this action doesn't solve the problem, I continue to see this message in the controller logs !
If I open a SSH session on the RAP, I can see this block of debug messages repeat all the time : *May 6 15:29:33.163: %MESH-6-ADJ_VIDB_LINK: Mesh neighbor 04da.d21f.4d6f VIDB Virtual-Dot11Radio0 dot1x control *May 6 15:29:33.167: %LINK-6-UPDOWN: Interface Virtual-Dot11Radio0, changed state to up *May 6 15:29:34.167: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Virtual-Dot11Radio0, changed state to up *May 6 15:29:43.223: %MESH-6-LINK_UPDOWN: Mesh station 04da.d21f.4d6f link Down *May 6 15:29:43.423: %MESH-6-ADJ_VIDB_LINK: Mesh neighbor 04da.d21f.4d6f VIDB Virtual-Dot11Radio0 going
When I take a look into detailled debug messages of the controller I can see this : *spamReceiveTask: May 06 17:30:44.364: #LWAPP-6-RADIUS_AUTHORIZATION: spam_radius.c:242 The system could not send join reply, AP authorization failed; AP:04:da:d2:1f:4d:6f
I don't know why the system talks about dot1x or Radius Authorization, and if this is the source of my problems. On a other hand, I can see in the debug messages that there is a 2 hours lag time between controller (correct time) and RAP (incorrect, I suppose it synchronize with the controller?)
I'm trying to become famillar with Cisco Mesh AP's deployment. As I know RAP's (Roof-top AP's are AP's with Ethernet/Fiber connection to the network). I connected these AP's via L2 switch , they can reach WLC and everything looks fine.
No I want to connect few MAP's to my RAP's. But of course firstly we will need to set-up IP addresses for these MAP's? But how? There is no "configure terminal" option at all ( on mesh AP console) .
MeshAP#? Exec commands: access-profile Apply user-profile to interface
a customer got an 1552 outdoor AP in local mode and installed it at a building. It has to run as a Mesh AP (MAP). Now the AP connects one time to the WLC 5508 and started a download. After that, the AP never came back. Like we saw on the other installed 1552 RAP's, they all where in local mode.We configured all AP's to bridge mode, but the MAP could not join anymore.Is there a CLI command to change the mode on the AP itself?From the WLC it's not a problem, but for the AP CLI I cannot find sth.
I found this sentence in 1552 AP guide."AP1552 comes only in the Bridge mode and the mode cannot be changed. A mesh access point performs CleanAir function and also serves clients on the assigned channel similar to the way the Cisco Indoor CleanAir AP3500 (nonmesh mode) operating in LMAP mode serving clients on its assigned channel. The mesh AP also monitors the spectrum only on that channel."We want to use this AP as a local AP ( not for mesh deployments) and serve our wireless clients. The main thing why we need this is just operating temperature. Is it good choice? Does it will function as "normal" local AP or we will have any problems , because of that "mesh" mode?
I need to know if i can connect RAP to RAP and maintain redundancy with connection to WLC.
I have one 1552 with the gigabit ethernet connected to the gigabit ethernet to another device that has a point-to-point link with another device where have a ethernet connection with a switch in the same broadcast domain where i have my WLC.
Next to this 1552 i have another 1552 that have the same situation, both with omnidirectional antenna.
I would like to have a Mesh connection with these two 1552 in 5Ghz, because if some point-to-point link is down i need redundancy to the WLC and my network, because i have some clients connected in the 2.4 Ghz in both Access Points.
Couple questions on setting channels on Cisco 1552s. First off almost all locations are fibered and set as RAPs. It doesn't allow me to set the channel assignment method to "global" to use DCA. It says it can't be done for a mesh backhaul AP. Is there any way around this? Next, when the channel is set to "custom" there are only 5 channels listed to choose from in the UNII-3 band. The spec sheet on the 1552 shows it supports other frequencies in the UNII-2 and UNII-2 extended range. Why can't I select those channels?
I want to set up AP 1552 as outdoor access point so serve clients. This AP is connected to 3750X switch and recieving power over ethernet.Now, by default AP 1552 come with bridge mode and it cannot be changed to local mode. I read on one of the post and made it ROOTAP but still the OPER STATUS is down. This device is already registered to my WLC.
what needs to be done to bring the AP in operational status.[code]
I have to install a wireless mesh network shortly using Cisco 1552 APs. This will be controller based using 5508 controllers. The controllers currently have some 1262 APs configured in a mesh and bridging configuration so happy that it all basically works. My question is - what is the "config mesh range' command doing on the controller ( or setting the Range(RootAP to MeshAP) setting on the controller mesh GUI. The default setting is 12000feet and I have left it at default at present. Just interested in what this is used for - I assume it alters the mesh protocol parameters somehow ( or the RF parameters perhaps ) as it suggests in the guide that mesh APs will reboot following this command being changed.
I'm deploying a Cisco Mesh infrastructure using WLC 7.2 version and 1552 APs.
This Mesh APs will be connected in the Light Pole and the RAP will be connected to the SP Switch located in this same Pole.
The MAP will be powered using Pole source power and will be connected to the RAP over 5.8 Bach haul.
My Customer asks if is possible that in case of SP Switch lost the connectivity to the Backbone IP, the RAP can connected to another RAP and maintain the connectivity to the Backbone over the Air, like REPEATER FALLBACK mode in Autonomous version.
For that I thinking to change the role of the RAP APs to "MAP with UTP Cable", but I'm not sure that a MAP AP with CAPWAP tunnel over UTP Cable can provide a Down link Backhand to another MAPs. That is possible?
I have a pretty old Linksys WRT160Nv3. I tried support from them but I was told my router is too old to receive free support. My router is connected to a comcast modem (Motorola).
Two days ago I tried to connect to the internet with my iPod and had no luck, the same went for my phone and my roommate's laptop. When I went on to the computer with with the router I was it was connected to Network 4 our local network and couldn't find any other networks. Our router came with 'Network Magic' so I opened that to see if our existing network showed up there, but only it's settings were there...it's like the computer tried to erase our network. I reset the router and re-made the network and this solved the problem for the day and most of yesterday.
Yesterday evening, I came home to the same problem. I did the same thing I ddi the first time, but instead of reseting the router before I did anything I skipped to re-installing it. I'm here because this happened again this morning, and before I go and set up the network again, I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong and what I should do. I even got a new anti-virus because I was afraid there might be a virus on the the computer making it act weird but I haven't been able to complete a full scan yet.
I have a Windows XP SP3.I bought this machine used not too long ago, it came with a legit fresh install of XP and all the drivers. And it's been running in great shape until this. I'll retrace my steps as best I can.I was on the internet and my connection was still connected (Completely, not limited) but my browser wouldn't surf. I naturally restarted my router, nothing changed. So I restarted my computer. When it came back on the Wireless didn't boot up like it used to. I checked my internet, it was fine. My laptop was running fine on it.Now as I try to figure out whats wrong, my "Wireless Network Connection" is gone completely from my computer. AND the Wireless isn't on my device manager anymore?? I installed another USB wireless stick (which I used on my old desktop) and it's working ok but I feel like my connection used to be so much better which the ASUS wifi instead. I un-installed the driver, and re-installed. [code]

Every day or two my landlord's router just seems to disappear altogether . just seems to turn itself off randomly. Unplugging to reset results in good, clear signal for a while, but the problem always comes back. It affects all connected machines (not sure if it makes any difference if a macnine is connected via wire.)
We are having a hard time to console into to the APs using the serial connection (USB to serial converter).We have tried the recommended settings (9600, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control (also tried XON/XOFF)) without any success.We are able to connect to 3560 series switches and 5508 WLCs using the same cables, notebook and application (putty, hyperterminal & secureCRT).
Every day around the same time the SSID for my wireless network disappears. I'm using a Netgear wnr2000v3. Prior to this I was using a Linksys router, which did the same thing... only more frequently (2-3 times a day).Between smartphones and laptops, there are about 6 devices connected to the network. They all lose their connection and cannot find the broadcasted SSID when this happens.Because it happens around the same time each day, it makes me think that it has something to do with the DHCP lease, which is 24 hours. Just a thought, as I don't really know how that works.
I am having a setup problem with the RE1000. When I plug it in, my laptop is able to see it, and I'm able to access it and attempt to set it up. However, once I tell it how to connect to my main wireless router, and it attempts to log onto my wireless network, the RE1000 disappears from my list of networks. My blu-ray player also cannot see it.
I have an Asus Model U56E. Recently the wireless has been disappearing whenever I turn off my laptop. What I mean is that when I turn on my laptop, the wireless doesnt seem to exist. I go under device manager and all I have is the eternet and my bluetooth device. About 85% of the time, when I go under "action" and click on "scan for hardware changes" the my Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N1030 will show up along with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adaptor and I'll get my wireless back. However, when my laptop turns off, the same thing happens.
In addition, my fn F2 button no longer seems to work. I'll press on it and majority of the time my light that signals that the wireless is working does not turn on. Most of the time it stays off whether or not I am connected to the wireless
This is what I already attempted to fix it, based on googling for answers: 1. Under the properties of my wireless and miniport adapter, I went under power management and unchecked the box that says "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
2. I went to my laptop's power plan and changed all my wireless adapter settings "power saving mode" to maximum performance for both battery and cord
3. I went to the intel website, had it look at my laptop wireless system and followed their recommendation of installing an updated wireless software thing. All that happened was that it told me to disable my old wireless and then install it. However, even though I followed their instructions, it continued to repeat the same message. I had to perform a system restore to get my old wireless back
4. I disabled wireless console 3 (by Asus) under programs and it seemed to work. My laptop was getting connected whenever I turned it on. However, the next day my laptop updated itself (b/c of my system restore) and I am back to the same situation except my wireless console is still disabled.
My 'main' Wifi SSID will just disappear and you can't connect to it. the guest account will still show up. computers/devices that are already connected will stay connected and will work fine, but anybody reconnecting will not be able to. Only solution I've found so far is to unplug and replug in my router
I've been tasked with providing wireless coverage for an outdoor courtyard. The wireless that bleeds out into the courtyard is minimal for both 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands. I'm thinking a 3502p mounted just inside the wall hooked to a ANT25137NP-R patch antenna mount on an exterior wall. The red line on the wall will represent the antenna mounted on the wall. This will be providing coverage for phones on 5Ghz and general devices on 2.4.
I am expanding coverage in a big outdoor area.Most of the area is covered with AP1552 with AIR-ANT2506 5,2 db antennas.At the border of the area i have some masts where i can place ap's.Would it make sense to use directional antenna's there? I have a big open area where it is not possible to place ap's.The only placement is a mast in the middle of the area.I have a AP1552 with 5,2 db antennas there.Can i get better coverage if i place 3 or 4 ap's with directional antennas ?Or should i try with a 12dBi AIR-ANT24120 ?
Customer wants to place a single 1552E to cover a particular area in his campus, and it will be placed on a tower, and the question is concerning the height. I can not find any particular height limitation such as 5 meters, 10 meters, etc. I understand this will influence the sign propagation as well as throughtput to the users, but can not find a matrix or a best practice guide for that.
