Cisco Wireless :: Recommendations For Implementing A Second WLC 2100?
Jan 3, 2013
We have two 2100 WLC's that support 12 access points. One has been sitting in a box for some time, but we're at the point where we need to add additional access points that will put us in excess of the 12 limitation. What is the best way to go for installing the second WLC?
I have been trying to set up a home network to my detached garage office for personal use. I currently have a wireless network in my house but the distance from that router to my detach garage computer is too great to reach by normal, conventional means. The distance is approximately 100 feet through brick, glass, vinyl siding, drywall, etc. I am unable to relocate the router that controls the wireless network due to cabling issues plus I am not sure of the reliability of ethernet cable from the base router to garage. Currently I am running off two modems(one in garage and one in house) but the expense is ridiculous. Do you have any recommendations to get my garage desktop on the wireless network? Powerline adapters? Access Points/Repeater?
Need to configure Cisco 1142 N access Point togetherwith the Cisco Switch . I have a POE Switch 4510 and Cisco 1142 N Cisco AP . I have one management vlan 5 & User VLAN for WIFI VLAN 10 . The problem is when i make the POE port which is connected to the AP as trunk port means : [code]I am not able to ping the management IP allotted from VLAN 5 . However when i make it as access i am able to ping the managament IP . But for both the VLANs to work it should be in trunk mode & in cisco i can either assign the port as access or trunk .Post this i would configure the 1142 N with Cisco SG300-10P POE Switch . I guess if issue with my 4510 gets resolved the same way i can configure SG300-10P as well .
I am trying to config my wireless lan controller (WLC) 2106 to discover my new 3500 access points.I followed the example Cisco configuration doc.69719.I am using a Cisco 3760 switch to interconnect the AP and WLC.I set up DHCP in the switch. [code]
Since few days the WLC 2100 series controller and 3x LAP1131AG are getting disconnected and the controller gets offline via the local ip address. At that point I have to reboot. To get anywhere and after I connect wirelessly to the AP before I know it it disconnects. It worked for 3 years straight no fuss. And now nothing. I reconfigured the WLC 10times and no diffference.
I have a cisco AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 and AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9, and i would like to join to Cisco WLC2106 (software version 18.104.22.168)My ap 1262N have 3 antennas externals with 7dbi of ganancy,Is possible to do it?
I'd WLC 2100 series and 9 access point LAP1142N .8 LAP1142N can work fine and join a capwap controller is ok but only one LAP1142 is can not . Part of LAP is AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9

I have a problem with our WLC 2100 series (2125). Basycally internal DHCP server configured on WLC is not working. I have one AP connected to port no 7 (PoE) to bypass and eliminate problem with other equipment.
I have a fairly simple WLC 2100 configured to control two APs. We had a power outage a few days ago, and though the WLC was on a surge protector, it did not come back up properly after the outage. The STATUS light sticks at amber and I can't get any console response. At this point I'm not sure what to do except replace the WLC, though I'm loathed to do that as our budget was just cut substantially for next year and we're trying to turn nickels into pennies.
I am having trouble on setting up a WLC2100 ver 7. we need to implement a private and public network. private network authenticate to IAS - RADIUS (windows server 2003 server) while the public network is open but when a client connect to AP it will redirect to a 3rd party web athentication - HotSpot Server. the challenge is we want to broadcast a single SSID.
1. when a user/guest connect to the AP a radius server will authenticate thru IAS - Radius.
2. when a user is authenticate via radius a dhcp server will give an ip address of the private network.
3. if the user is not authenticate a dhcp server will give the public ip address and netowrk traffic must go to a different VLAN.
my question is, is it possible to broadcast a single SSID for the two network? is there a document which is related to our scenario?
The operating temperature for 2100 wireless lan controllers is up to a miximum of 40 degrees celsius according to the datasheet. We deployed some 2112 controllers all displaing a temperature above 50 degrees celsiun. This during normal operation and deployed proper enviromet (aroco ...)
The topics I'm looking to learn about: VRF,Multicast different VPN types mpls...ect. GRE TunnelsIPS/IDS configuration. I know about the Routing TCP/IP, Volume 1 and Volume 2 by Jeff Doyle.I don't have them, but I'm interested.
I have a client whom uses a DSL 10 MG circuit as their backup circuit for Internet Connectivity in case of a failure. The circuit uses a DSL modem that is unreliable. I was recommending yesterday tot he client that perhaps we could place a Cisco router in place of the residential grade DSL modem /router currently in place.I wanted to place a 1900 ISR G2 in there, which would allow me to swap the DSL module out whenever I can talk the company into a Metro E connection. At that point I could swap the DSL module out and put an Ethernet module in to receive the Metro E. I was not able to find a solution last night using the Dynamic Configuration Tool. Seems DSL has been phased out.Is there any recommendation that could be made to accommodate this clients request for a Cisco router that will handle DSL?
One of our customers have one Cisco WLC 2100 (firmware 5.2) with 4 AP Mesh 1522, in a city deployment. In order to achieve local regulatory, has to implement bandwidth limitations per user.
I got screen captures of WLC QoS Profiles options, with Average Data Rate in Per-User Bandwidth Contracts. So my question is, do I need any other equipment to achieve per user bandwidth limitation? Can it be done with WLC QoS options?
We have a 2100 cisco Wireless LAN Controller which manages 3 APs and assign IP address to clients which connects via wifi. Currently, we are deploying dual stack IPv6 and our consultant stated that our current controller does not support IPv6.
This is rather odd statement because there is an option to enable IPv6 in the advance tab of WLAN. And sometimes clients (win7 and Mac OS X) are getting v6 addresses, able to ping v6 sites, and reach v6 sites successfully. And other times, clients do not..or getting the v6 address for 10-15minutes, then unable to ping/reach v6 sites.
Our consultant is sticking by his words saying it does not support. If this is true, then clients should not be able to get v6 at all....not sometimes and not other times; very inconsistent.
And what is ipv6 pass through? What is ipv6 bridging?
In the near future my company is looking into the option of adding a second network connection (exclusively for customers visiting our facility) to our pre existing WLAN network. We are currently using a Cisco 2100 series Wireless LAN Controller and probably 6-8 APs. Our main connection is made up of 4 T1 lines and the second connection will more than likely be a cheap DSL connection. I'm wondering if this technology supports two separate connections on one controller and APs. For example, is there a way within the controller web interface to separate what is currently our "Guest" connection from the main Internet line? I was thinking of just plugging from the DSL router directly to the controller and save the hassle of changing routing and VLANs.
I have two 5508 WLC's setup to run about 200 AP's as the moment. This is a hospital with patient care now running over wireless. I am looking for the best scenario to minimize down time. Currently both controllers are in the same mobility group and I will be setting the primary / secondary controller in the High Availability tab for each AP. Most setting are all default still.
My question: Would it better to setup the primary/secondary from the global configuration? Can I leave them in the same mobility group if I use the global configuration?
My only problem so far is having AP's on different controllers caused some response delay as clients move from one controller to the other. I need to find the best possible response time with the lowest possible fail-over time. Any recommondeations or links to a good article on this subject?
I am looking for recommendations on a device to put at the forefront of our network, mainly for web content filtering. Our network is currently setup as this:We have two Internet providers. One for each network that are physically separate except a a Cisco 3560 which is used for failover. In the event one ISP goes down, one network can use the others ISP, however, it has no access to the other network beyond that switch.Currently, each network has a web content filter (SmartFilter) server which is going end of life in a year. We would like to replace each server with a single box at the front of the network for filtering. Other bonuses would be things such as bandwidth control, virus protection, etc.Perhaps the most important thing is to make sure our ISP bandwidth download speed does not get hampered by the device we choose to put at the front. We have 50mb download on one and 30mb on the other. If the device throttles the download at 10mb then it's useless to us.
If you had to chose between Dell and another OEM manufacturer for a server to be used in a 1-20 user/employee/computer office network, which OEM would you go for? For a long time I have been recommending/selling Dell servers to my SMB clients (mainly the Poweredge T series) and am pretty comfortable working with these servers. However, I'm also a Lenovo business partner and they seem to have some aggressive pricing. Have any of you used Lenovo servers lately? Pros/cons? Warranty support good? I noticed HP is now selling Microsoft software licenses as a kit when you purchase a server, appearing to be discounted, even if you were to buy the licenses separately through a volume agreement.
Also, being that most of my clients in the 1-20 user/employee/computer office environment are looking at their bottom line, how would you configure a new server to run Microsoft SBS 2008 (some using Exchange, others not yet but may in future)? RAID1/5/10? 8GB RAM enough? Intel Xeon E5600 series processor? SATA or SAS drives?
Here is what I would normally build out a server from Dell: single Intel Xeon E5620 processor 8GB RAM PERC RAID card configured in RAID1 500GB SATA drives x 2 SBS2008 (I don't have much experience with SBS2011 yet, figured it would be best to let others work out any potential issues first)
We're looking for recommendation of remote controllable PDUs that support a phone line connection for POTS (in case the core router is down and we need to remotely power cycle connected equipment) and RJ45 for control from the network (if the core router doesn't happen to be down).
We have 4 1142N LAPs that I want to divide between an internal wireless and a guest wireless network using the controller. Currently all of the APs are on an established internal network, but I want to migrate one over to a test guest network before buying more LAPs to augment the networks further. Currently the port connecting to the WCS from the 3560 switch is configured as an access port using VLAN 10. Whenever I make it a trunk port carrying VLAN 10 as well as the other ports we will be using for the guest and ap-manager networks, I lose connection with the controller. To me this implies that the port on the controller is configured as an access port as well. In the documentation I found for the controller it states that by default the ports are al configured to be trunks, but it appears as though something was changed by the previous tech. All of the APs are connected to other switches, not to the controller itself.
1) How can I get the port on the controller back to being a trunk port
2) Can I use the internal DHCP server for the guest network if the subnet is different than the management subnet, or will I have to use another external server and relay/proxy it through the controller to give guest clients IP addresses?
I have a cisco wlan controller (2100) running software 22.214.171.124. I have the internal private wlan running off of port 1 and that is working fine with an internal dhcp server.Is it possible to setup another ssid (guest) and have the interface directly linked to a static ip on the WAN and also use the built in cisco internal dhcp server?
Sup720 setup, possibly upgrading to Sup32's in a few years, Right now for power supplies, I am using 2 WS-CAC-2500W ,But I have to run the supplies in combined mode to get all of the cards online.What power supply should I be looking to purchase for this chassis ?
Dell 8600 centrino intel pro wireless lan 2100 won't connect to netgear n150 wnr1000. Running 802.11b band it sees wireless network but won't connect. I have 2 other computers connected to network so it works.... I don't know if Netgear n150 is compatible with 802.11b band...
I'm trying to re-setup this EOL camera on a new router.I've been able to reset the cam to factory defaults and see it wired using dhcp. I then was able to change the address to a static address, still wired and still can see it with IE. However when I disconnect the rj-45 cable, power down and restart, I can't access the cam.
