Cisco Wireless :: Using The WLC 2504 Across Multiple Sites?
Mar 31, 2013
I am about to deploy a load of Aironet LWAPs into my organization. I've configured the WLC 2504 and have a couple of the APs working at our main site. I just needed to plug them in, and they worked perfectly, straight out the box. But I just want to know the following:
1 - will the same apply if I connect an AP at a remote site? Remote sites are on different subnets and connected via IPSEC. Will the remote APs just find the WLC?
2 - is there anything I need to set up especially on the WLC in order to make this work?
I've got a question concerning the configuration of multiple AP manager interfaces on -for example- a cisco WLC 2504. I've read the configuration guide but I'm not sure whether this is the way the protocol works. Say I want to distribute AP's (and traffic) across various AP Manager interfaces on the WLC. I would configure the following:
Create one management interface (which will automatically also be an AP-Manager interface)Configure 1 (or more) Seperate ap-manager interfaces, assign them to a port number, and select "Enable dynamic AP Management". VLAN ID's will be the same.Create a WLAN and configure it's interface to "management" Is it correct if I state that the LWAPP protocol takes care of the discovery from the Access Point and sends information about the available AP-manager interfaces back to the AP and the AP knows which ap-manager interfaces are available, connecting to the least loaded one?

I'm using parental controls to block all devices in the house from using tumblr. I cannot do this at a device by device level as it is being used on iphones/androids, laptops and desktops.Unfortunately, the way that tumblr works is that it use many URLs for the different pages people set up so it is not just a case of blocking url... - so I'm struggling to work out if I can do this via URL blocking on the router settings. How to do this at router level.
I currently have a "hub" ASA 5505 that links to 4 sites running 877 routers. From the hub network i can connect to all sites fine but what i would like to do is to almost compartmentalise the various VPN links into little clusters.The hub ASA 5505 basically provides IP telephony through the VPN's from a PBX allowing the users at the other end of the VPN to make outgoing calls and recieve incoming calls. However, a couple of the sites would like to be able to call between eachother internally via the hub. This obviously requires traffic to be allowed between their various networks. Currently when you attempt an internal call it rings but there is no audio either way. I assume this is due to access list restrictions. I am not even sure whether what I am trying to achieve is possible. I've attached the hub and 2 spokes below. The ideal end result would be interconnectivity between the two spokes via the hub, from reading up it would seem that its possible but i can't quite get my head around it! Would it involve using different subnet masks at the hub?
I would like to create two site-to-site VPNs, one for data and one for VoIP, between the same sites. One end is an ASA 5510 and the other is a third party firewall. Is this possible if I use different sets of IP addresses for each tunnel?
I am installing 2 ASA 5505s at home offices with dynamic IPs. The EasyVPN server is a ASA585x. I am using the 5505s in NEM mode. I configured a unique DHCP scope on each 5505. I have a dynamic crpto map on the server. I configured unique tunnel groups, group policies and usernames for each site on the server. This seems to work fine. Is it normal to configure unique tunnel groups, group policies and usernames for each remote site?
MY ISP installed one router in my lab.for internet connectivity they mail me steps :connect your Laptop directly to gi0/3 port to check internet connectivity with public ip 1.1.1.x and Gateway 22.214.171.124 with subnet mask 255.255.255.240 after connection I surprised because I am able to access only google sites like gmail,google search etc. but I am able to ping/traceroute all sites.from browser I am able to access only google sites only.In Router no firewall no such access list.
how i can configure a second ssid for guest access in our environment. this is our network setup prior to this request: Internet----Firewall (not ASA)---ce520---C1131AG and CME router is also connecting to the ce520 switch. we only have two vlans: one for voice and two for data.
Presently, there is no vlan configured on the AP because it on broadcasting ont ssid and wireless users gets IP from a windows DHCP server on the LAN. the configuration on the ce520 switch port for the AP and other switches say access vlan is the DATA vlan which automatically becomes the native vlan for all trunk port connecting the AP and other Stiches to the network.
Now with this new requirement, i have made my research and i have configured the AP to broadcast both the production and the guest Vlans. The two vlans are 20-DATA and 60-Guest. I made the DATA vlan on the AP the native vlan since the poe switch is using the DATA vlan as native on the trunk ports. I configured the firewall to serve as DHCP server for the guest ssid and i have added the ip helper-address on the guest vlan interface on all switches while the windows server remains the dhcp server for the production DATA Vlan. I have confirmed that the AP, switches can ping the default gateway of the guest dhcp server which is another interface on the firewall. I can now see and connect to all broadcasted ssids but the problem is I am not getting IP addresses from both the production dhcp server and guest dhcp server when i connected to the ssid one at a time. My AP config is attached below.
Do i need to redesign the whole network to have a native vlan other nthan the data vlan? Does the access point need to be aware of the voice vlan? Do the native Vlan on the AP need to be in Bridge-group 1 or can i leave it in bridge-group 20?
I am trying to build a new network from scratch, I have the WLC 5508 w/ Aironet 3600e APs connected to my Netgear Smart Switches and a Linksys RV082 router that I'm using as my DHCP server with several VLANs for several stuff on my Switches.
I have 2 questions:
1. Can I have 5 Interfaces configured on 5 different VLANs, each SSID on each a different Port:
Port 1: Controller management only=> 192.168.x.x /24 Port 2: SSID 1: WiFi Internal=> 172.16.x.x/12 (Radius Auth with no sharing) Port 3: SSID 2: WiFi Internal w/ sharing=> 192.168.x.x/24 (Radius Auth with sharing) Port 4 :SSID 3: WiFi Guest=> 10.0.x.x/8 (Web Auth) Port 5: SSID 4: WiFi IT=> 192.168.x.x/24 ( Radius or certificate Auth with access to the controller management interface)
2. How can I use the Controller as the DHCP server for all the WiFi traffic, and how should that be configured to work with my other DHCP server?
My only options for internet have been 56k or wireless USB modems. That is, until recently. We switched from the wireless USB modems to a wireless hotspot from US Cellular (Samsung SCH-LC11). However, ever since making the switch I've had problems accessing certain websites both on our PC and on my Macbook Pro. I can't connect to Invision Free (or any of its user-created forums) or [URL]. It happens with other, random sites as well. I tried manually changing DNS settings to Google's and another one (don't recall which) and it did allow me to access the site. However, once there, every other site started moving slowly and eventually the ones in question timed out as well.
I have been asked to setup wireless and we have purchased WLC 5508 and 1142 APs.We have several remote sites and a centralized WLC. The requirement are to have a common SSID (Corporate) advertised across all the remote sites and have that SSID locally switched, and have another two SSID Guest and Mobile tunneled back to the central site (WLC).I want all the wireless (Corporate) clients to use the same subnet as the wired clients at each remote site, the IP assigment will be done by a DHCP server at the central site. The Guest and Mobile users will use a common subnet each across all the site and this will also be handled by the DHCP server at the central site.
I have enabled H-REAP with Centralized Authentication and Local switching but I'm not sure about the second part which is to have a common SSID (Corporate) across the remote sites and localy switched whilst having the other two SSIDs tunneled back to the WLC. Cisco TAC told me to configure dynamic interfaces for each of the remote site but then he said I still wouldn't be able to switch the Corporate traffic localy if I use a different subnet to the wired subnet for the wireless clients.
Is it possible to assign a single ssid to multiple interface groups by assigning the ssid to multiple AP groups?
I have buildings geographically dispersed that are configured with multiple vlans in interface groups so that I can maintain an addressing scheme of dhcp assigned addresses per building. Each building is also further grouped as AP groups. I'd like to know if by assigning the same wlan ssid to each of the AP groups, will I maintain addressing integrity for each building? I'm thinking it will work.
Do the buildings have to be outside AP range of each other to avoid problems?
I am having trouble with my wireless connection. I am only able to visit websites but if I try to use the internet for anything else (AIM, Yahoo instant messenger, etc), it will not work. This is not a modem issue because my other computers' connections still work fine.
I'm planning to upgrade our WLC 2504 from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 but the cisco site says "WLC Version 184.108.40.206 will need Prime Infrastructure Version 1.3 to be managed, Version 1.3 is not yet available to download at this point of time" Is it something about NCS? we have only 1 cisco WLC 2504 and 6 1142APs.. Also let me know is it possible to go directly from 7.2 to 7.4 ?
I've problem with a WLC 2504. Some Clients like phones and Thin Clients get an IP 0.0.0.0.Software Version is 220.127.116.11. Test with a Laptop seams to be OK. Some printers also got an 0.0.0.0.Around 30% are not OK. also had the log: Impersonation of AP with Base Radio MAC 00:yy:yy:yy:yy:yyusing source address of 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx has been detected by the AP with MAC Address: 00:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy on its 802.11b/g radio whose slot ID is 0 The problem is, I cannot go to 7.2 version because I have 2 x AP 1231 and 2 x 1242 AP's.1231 AP's are not anymore supported in 7.2 Version.
I have two WLC 2504 controllers. These controllers are for two different buildings. But they share a VLAN, and network address range. How can I control the access points to the register selected only at a specific controller.
AP 1 -> WLC 1 AP 2 -> WLC 2 AP 3 -> WLC 1
Since the buildings also broadcast in different SSID. The two controllers are in a mobility group.
Some time ago I updated a WLC, model 2504, from version 7.3 to 18.104.22.168. I also update the FUS (Field Upgrade Software) to the latest release, 22.214.171.124. Now I need to downgrade the WLC back to 7.3 version.
My doubt is: Can I just take the normal processes and downgrade the WLC back to 7.3, even with the FUS in version 126.96.36.199?
i`m facing a problem configuring the mentioned access point to act as stand alone access point with multiple SSID assigned to differnet VLANs the problem is that
1) i`m not able to broadcast the both SSIDs in the same time from the Access point
2) i need to make the radius server to manage the SSID access for the wireless clients (trying to find a way in which the aceess point sends a log for the radius server containing the VLAN id /IP address of the the SSID) you may find the below info about the IOS ver. & the configuration?
