Cisco Wireless :: How New 1260 Will Work In Mixed Environment
Aug 2, 2011
I am looking to slowly migrate some of our wireless devices (Aironet 1231 and 1232's) to the Wireless N spec - 1260's.I currently have four AP locations that I want to upgrade first before anywhere else. At the minute, these four AP's work on the 2.4Ghz G band.
how the new 1260's will work in the mixed environment. I believe I will need to purchase the 1262 (which is the dual band version) so that I can operate the AP in both the 2.4Ghz G band range and the 5Ghz N range at the same time, is this correct?If I was to purchase the 1261 (which is the single band version), will I only be able to operate in either th 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, but not at the same time?
For the mixed environment, would you suggest the dual band version? Can I place the same SSID on multiple Radios if this is the case? Following example: Say I have the SSID called 'Company' - this at the minute is operating on the G band 2.4Ghz range. If I was to purcahse the dual band 1262, could I put this SSID on both the G radio and the N radio? Would clients with an N adapter automatically connect to the 5Ghz range (N Radio) and legacy G and B adapters automatically connect to the 2.4Ghz (G Radio)?
If we have a mixed environment of 4400 and 5500 controllers will the office extend features still work or will we have to run a seperate wireless domain from the 5508 for the aps that we need office extend on?
iam currently trying to replace AP1231G-E-K9 with new equipment / Cisco AP next generation maybe?The problem is that the system, that is going to use the AP is using aironet 350 PCMCIA adapter with LEAP. If in fact we are going to use a new Cisco AP, will the new generation work with Aironet 350 Adapter and support LEAP?
I would like to buy Cisco Aironet 1260 Access Points, i just want to use them independantly so i want to know do they work without the Wireless LAN Controller? or i have to have the controller for them to work? they will be in different locations so i cant have a controller per each location.
I'm trying to use RDC to connect to my home PC from work. I've tested everything on my laptop from another network and the connection works fine but the same settings don't seem to work when I'm at work.
I'm pretty sure I have everything set up correctly. Using the default port forwarded to the desired computer.
We have 3 x WAP4410N at new office setup in Singapore. Customer asked us to setup those 3 AP to make client auth against an ACS 4.2 sitting in US office. All the user notebooks were joined to Windows domain in US office, before sent out to Singapore office. We configured APs with WPA2 Enterprise Mixed mode and entered radius server address and secrects correctly. Logging from ACS shows that users are authenticated successfully but, on the user notebooks, authentication never seems successful and keeps authenticating.
We are installing 1260 Access Point (AIR-LAP1262N-E-K9) with 2 sets of external antenna:AIR-ANT2460NP-R (2.4Ghz, Patch Wall-mount, 6dBi Directional) & AIR-ANT5160NP-R (5Ghz, Patch Wall-mount, 6dBi Directional).What would be the recommended separation of the 2 antennas if they will be mounted beside each other?
i have cisco 1260 Access point with standalone ios ap3g1-k9w7-tar.124-23c. i download new IOS to connect the AP to the controller the new ios is ap3g1-k9w8-tar.124-23c.JA5.tar. upgrade th AP to LAP. is it just install ios like in router & switch by tftp?
i have Cisco WLC 2504 & 1260 LAP.i connect the WLC to L3 switch & connect the LAP to another port in the same L3 switch.i configure DHCP on the same switch to provide ip for the LAP , but the LAP can't get an ip address and can't joint the controller.also if when i login to the LAP i can't enter the configuration mode.
So I'm going to bridge two Cisco AP's 1260 and 3500, which have an 880 router on each side.
(Currently I have a VPN set-up through the internet for the two locations to communicate) (Naturally they are currently in different subnets) Will absolutely change this and set up as one subnet. There is VLANs setup on each router (same VLANs)
Everything is configured on the Routers and AP's for these VLANs (works flawlessly over the VPN).
So now since I’m going to get rid of the VPN and set-up a bridge with two AP's, will having same VLANs across both routers be a problem? Will VLANs work OK through the bridge?
Besides using (IP helper address DHCP-IP) command on the non-root bridge side router to forward DHCP requests to the root bridge side router, Also I want to be able to route internet traffic on the non-root bridge side through the WAN port, and only route LAN traffic through the bridge..
I just bought a new WRT120N router and it works perfectly on cable and Wi-Fi with one major issue on Wi-Fi. If i connect my phone or any phone for that matter that knows N speed the connection speed is 65Mbps and that is fine as all phones are limited to this speed over Wi-Fi. When I connect a Sony laptop that has N connection speed up to 300 Mpbs the connection speed shows as 65Mpbs. Are there any special settings I have to do to make the connection at least 100 or 120 Mpbs? What is the maximum connection speed of this model because I couldn't find any information about this. I did some digging on google and found that some people have connection speed of 120 Mpbs but they didn't give any advice on the settings they used or how they got to this speed. Keep in mid that I am refering to the connection speed now the actual download speed. So what settings I have to do to get at least 100 Mpbs speed connection?
LE: I would prefer a setting that would alow me to connect a Galaxy Nexus phone an iPhone 3G and the Sony laptop so that all of them will be connected at the maximum speed suported by that specific device.
I have a Dell Wireless 1500 draft N adapter that only connects at G speeds in mixed mode. I tried N only mode and my adapter will not connect. I have tried N mode Auto and 40hz wide and nogo. I have tried TKIP + AES and AES and nogo.
I'm new to the Cisco Aironet Access Point. I got a new STANDALONE Aironet 1260 series access point device. The part # AIR-AP1262N-A-K9. The shipping package did not come with any guide, CD, and power adapter. I searched the Cisco sites, but could not find appropriate manuals. I did find a getting started guide but not for standalone AP, it's for Controller-based AP. Question - where can I find manuals / guides to set up and configure my new standalone Cisco Aironet Access Point 1260?
We have been having issues with random packet drops and or some sort of radio lockup which happens a few times a day. I have a test AP setup with a few clients only a few feet away and I see this combination of messages. Should I be seeing these clients drop off and then reconnect immediately? Granted these test clients are not passing much data but my assumption is that they would not become deauthenticated because of lack of activity? This setup is using a radius server for authentication. I tested it before with just WPA2 PSK and only had a few disconnected over a number of days, compared with many a day with the Radius.
I'm a little stuck with a 4400 22.214.171.124 + RAP 1550 + MAP 1260 Ethernet bridging issue. I'm using the VLAN tagging functionality and I'm finding that periodically a VLAN that I've tagged on the MAP will deregister from the backhaul and stop passing traffic. If I go into the Mesh tab on the MAP, select the wired interface, remove the VLAN from the list of tagged VLAN IDs and then add it right back to the list, its starts passing traffic again
Recently I have installed and configurated an AP 1260, it has already IP, SSID, and ping to the router, but after install the antenna I open the web configuration and see that it has 0 clients connected and the light is always green, indicated as only is configurated with nobody connected.
Tha radio setting is up, 2,4 Ghz and 5 Ghz any issue with the antenna? or i need to configure anything else?
i have 2 1260 Access points one is in root mode , one is wgb mode. Authentication is EAPFAST. There are 5 devices connected via WGB bridge to the rest of the network.
- If clients are sending some data , then WGB AP announces this client mac via IAPP to root AP and rest of the network sees them correctly - If clients are "passive" , then after WBG AP announces them to root AP , they timeout after 6 minutes on root AP and obviously they are not pingable from the rest of the network. The only way to restore connectivity is to ping that device from WGB AP, then WGB AP announces via IAPP to root AP , then and only then they become visible from the rest of the network.
My question is related to this 6 minute timeout on root AP . Is it normal behaviour ?
We’re deploying new WIFI towers at several of our vacation resorts and have decided to migrate from Wireless G to Wireless N access points. We currently have the following in each WIFI tower – Hotspot I’ve been researching and speaking to our partner pre-sales team, and have narrowed the choice down to deploying 3 x AIR-AP1261N-x-K9 at each of our towers. I have been unable to find suitable replacements to the 1watt Luxul 2.4ghz amplifiers we’re using, or really good N sector antennas to mount to the top of our masts. The 1260’s are all 802.af, so besides getting power injectors there shouldn’t be to much to think about.
Need securing a wireless environment in a hotel? The SSID has to be broadcast of course but how can we protect guests from man in the middle attacks, etc.? Currently the environment is all AP1200s with no hardware upgrades in the near future. There is also a 2811 router in place but nothing else. We would love to be able to force users to authenticate with a password in order to get out to the Internet as well.
During BOYD implementation we faced some problems with Android devices:
1) The Netwrok Setup Assistant (NSA) download process corrupts during the self-provisioning process (captured on 4.1.1 and 4.2.2 version) 2) If NSA is already installed, the network setup process (downloading profile, certificate) stops at last step: connecting to network, meanwhile the connection itself successfully establishes. This bug is captured on 4.2.2 version, 4.1.1 is ok.
Google ACL is configured according to TrustSec docs and permits all traffic to google networks 126.96.36.199/16 and 188.8.131.52/16.
I currently have 2 PCs that are directly connected to each other via a 1Gbs Cat6 connection.I don't currently have a 1Gbs router so what I am doing right now is unhooking this connection and reconnecting both machines to my router when I need internet access. I have ordered some USB Wi-Fi adapters so I can have both machines access the internet that way whilst still use FTP between them on the 1Gbs line.If I were to scrap that idea and get a 1Gbs hub, connect both PCs straight into that, and then also connect the hub to my 100mbits router, would the 2 computers be able to communicate with each other at 1Gbs and then talk to the router at 100mbits, or would the whole network run at 100mbits.I don't really want to have to shell out on a 1Gbs router as I don't need anything else on the network to run at that speed.
How to create a mixed service ports on ASA 8.4(2)?I need to create a service group which has ICMP, TCP ports and also different UDP ports.Normally you would create different service group based on TCP/UDP/TCP-UDP/ICMP/Protocol and add then to new nested service group.But I want to create a new service group where you can define everything without the need to different service groups and nesting them into a new one.
I'm trying to use LMS to upgrade a stack of switches that have 1 or more 3750x's and other 3750's. In Software Distribution, if I choose Distrube to devices, basic, it finds the x switch, which is the master but says the others are not candidates. I don't see a place where I can tell it it is a mixes stack and choose multiple IOS's.
