Cisco Wireless :: 2500 WLAN Controller Series Compatible With LAP1131AG?
Apr 17, 2012
I have a customer whom has six LAP1131AG-K9 but no controller and they are interested in one of the new 2500 series, specifically a AIR-CT2504-5-K9 with a 5 AP add-on license to bring total AP capacity to 10. I can't determine clearly if this controller will work for these older AP's prior to them making the jump to 802.11n via the 3500 or 3600 series, looking to the community to confirm.
If the 2600 series access points are compatible with a 4404 controller running 18.104.22.168 code? I was looking for a compatibilty matrix for the AP to controller to code comparison but couldn't find one.
The Release Notes for 22.214.171.124 of WLC 5500 has a table which title is "Client Type", and it shows wireless adapters. My question is, what kind of customer means? Wireless clients or clients for an specific application? If it was the first option, does it mean tha just this adapters could connect to my wireless network?
I recently upgraded our controllers to the latest version 7 software, as I read this was one of the requirements to get them to connect. But I am not having any luck getting into a controller. Normally I plug them in to the network, they pop into the controller listed as something like AP5057.a844.xxxx and then I can finish configuring them, but a static IP on them, etc. This is the first of this model AP I have tried to deploy, so I am wondering what is different with these. or what I might be missing in the default config in the WLAN controllers. Niether of which are set to "Master" either.
We plan on buying a Cisco 2700 wireless location appliance but I need to know if it will be compatible with our 2500 WLC.I've tried to look but cant find any document for this. Also can you deploy the location appliance without a WCS?
I have the problem with machine authentication, our customer using Wireless Controller 2500 Series and need implement machine authentication on IAS server. So, as my understand is our controller may not change anything with configuration but we may configure IAS for support machine authentication, correct? but my question is how to? and is it work ?
I am having trouble adding a new controller(2500) to the WCS.
-My WCS version 126.96.36.199 -My WLC version 188.8.131.52
If i upgrade my WCS i may add the new contoller? Even if in cisco DATA-SHEET there isnt any mention regarding this WLC(basicly it says that the WCS does not support this WLC)

We have a cisco 2500 wireless controller with LAPs.Our devices require Broadcasting to be enabled. So I had to enabe broadcast forwarding under the Controller tab.It appears this option is a global seeting. Is there a way to enable Broadcast Forwading for an specific WLAN or SSID?Can we isolate broadcast data to an SSID or a WLAN?
Do you know if the new 2500 series controller supports things like mobility groups? Could I use 2 of these and do inter-controller roaming. Also do you know if this would work with a 2106 controller and a 2505 controller or are they 2 completely independent controllers only knowing about their own APs??
I want to download the Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers Release 7.3 Software AIR-CT2500-K9-7-3-112-0.aes.I have CON-SMB for it, when I try to download it I am not to download it. I have mentioned the message given by Cisco" The category for this contract does not include the feature or the benefit for software download that you are requesting at the moment, this means that even if the contract is a support assistant (8X5XNBD) does not support the the mentioned feature for you to update the device you need, please refer to your partner directly to be able to acquired a Cisco Service Contract that supports and include the software download feature to be able to upgrade and update your device as you need."Is there any seprate contract for downloading the Software.
I am planning to implement wireless network in my work place. Plan is to have two networks one for guests and one for employee. I am trying to find a guide for 2500 WLC but couldn't find one.I've been reading couple of articles about setting up radius server and CA. I want to know what the best way to approach this.In my environment I got a CA server windows server 2003 and current DC's are windows server 2008 R2.I got 2500 WLC with POE switch and 4 aironet AS 1142.
I am developing CAP1602I & 2500 Controller.The CAP1602I-E-K9 can't register with the 2500 controller. [code] logging appears: capwap can't process uncryped data..I even didn't configure capwap on CAP1602.May I know if CAP1602 doesn't support LWAPP? Why LWAPP doesn't work?According to the logging, I also tried to configure the "Data Encryption" on 2500 controller ( according to 184.108.40.206 guide)
"Cisco 2500, WiSM2, WLC2—By default, these platforms do not contain DTLS. To turn on data DTLS, you must install a license. These platforms have a single image with data DTLS turned off. To use data DTLS you will need to have a license."Note If your controller does not have a data DTLS license and if the access point associated with the controller has DTLS enabled, the data path will be unencrypted. I should purchase a license? or, if I can configure the CAP1602I to don't encrypt data?
I have a Cisco 2500 Wireless Controller connected and controlling 5 Cisco AP's. Everything works fine except one device.
This device is used to connect to our AP wirelessly and then any of the wireless laptops can use programming software to connect to the device and program through it. I can successfully set up our device on the network and all PCs can ping it, but the programming software refuses to connect to it. I spent an hour and a half on the phone with the device people who assure me its the network. So, I bought in a cheap Linksys router, hooked one laptop up to it and configured the device wirelessly. With that, the programming software works.
what should I be looking for in the Wireless Controller that may be blocking direct connection to the device even though I can ping it?
We are currently using a Cisco 2500 (licensed for 50 AP's) WLAN Controller. There has been a lot of issues setting up the VOCERA wireless badges, thats on going. The question I have is all the AP's are showing as being on Channel 6, it was thought that the controller would learn the enviroment and move these to none overlapping channels, but has not. Is this right should they all be on the same channel and not 1, 6, 11 accordingly? it is also worth mentioning that the controller can see 61 rogue AP's, yes that is 61 other wireless networks!
give me the run down on the features removed from the 4400 series in the 2500 series? Obviously 4400 is now EOL, and so i cannot purchase new. Therefore I was looking at the 2500 for my implementation to save costs also.I would like to have two SSID's, running seperate VLAN's, one voice, one guest, trunk the link to the AP's, which will be 1131AG or newer, N possibly. Voice needs to be encrypted with WPA or WPA2, guest needs to be open using the guest access feature. Here's a sample but with EAP:
Is this supported to have WPA on one SSID and Guest access on the other? i did spot a paragraph in the 4400 manual stating that certain restrictions apply regarding one SSID having encryption and the other being guest mode?I notice also in the WCS documentation, it doesn't explicitly state it supports the 2500 series under the managed devices section?
We have recently installed Cisco for our wireless solution. We are an education and are looking to let staff and pupils bring their own devices. The route that we are planning to take to let them join the school's WiFi is to implement a RADIUS server so that they can authenticate with their Active Directory username and password. I have tried to test the solution but so far without any success. I am using a Windows Server 2008 R2 as my NPS server, I have setup the Cisco controller as per below: Security Tab | RADIUS | Authentication - I added my windows server there and the preshared key, the Network User and Management is ticket and the server responds to a ping command,In the WLANs Tab, I selected my test WLAN and under Security | AAA Servers I selected the RADIUS server that I configured in the Security TabI then try to logon to my test WLAN and on the Cisco WLAN controller I get the following error: AAA Authentication Failure for UserName:test User Type: WLAN USER Before trying to tinker with policies on the Windows Server I was wondering if the RADIUS is correctly setup on the Controller or have I missed something obvious?
We have a Cisco 2500 WLC with 136 APs. Recently, we discovered eight APs that were not listed on the Wireless > Access Points > All AP list. These APs were once working and connected, but now they are no longer in the All AP list. I located one of these APs and found the green LED blinking. I power cycled the AP and it came back online with a solid green LED and was then registered on the All AP list. The All AP list will only show the connected APs. I would like to know if there is a method to show the APs that were once connected and are no longer registered so we can better identify when an AP is not working?
I have therefore 2504 Wireless Controller with a wireless access point AIR-CAP1602I-E-K9 (LWAPP image version 220.127.116.11) I saw that I needed to update the Controller in 7.4 for compatibility with my AP. Now when I connect my AP I get error messages:
*Mar 1 00:01:02.387: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Did not get log server settings from D HCP. *Mar 1 00:01:02.387: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Could Not resolve CISCO-CAPWAP-CONTROL
