Cisco Wireless :: Manually Assigning Channels And RRM Setting With WLC 5505

Mar 16, 2013

My wireless network consists mainly of approximately 1400 AP's 900 x 3602's, 500 x 3502's,The majority of these AP's especially the new ones have been manually optimised for channel and power settings. We paid an external surveyor to survey and optimise the AP's.   
We have a few 5505 WLC's and the channel assignment method is set to "Freeze" ,My question is, if someone invokes a channel update on a WLC, will the WLC override the original manual channel setting if the WLC thinks it should be changed?  And will the original setting be lost forever unless a restore is performed from the WLC Database?

Cisco Wireless :: Setting Channels Supported By 1552

Oct 15, 2012

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?

Cisco WAN :: Assigning Public IP Address On ASA 5505

Jul 25, 2012

My company wants to create a VPN Tunnel to allow a remote office to connect to ours. I purchased 2 ASA 5505 and I was expecting to be able to set this up without any issues. Sadly, that is not the case.
What I'm having trouble with is configuring my Public IP Address to the device. I go through the setup wizard and enter the IP Address like normal, but I have no option to input my ISP's subnet, Gateway or DNS. Without those, I get no internet connection. I know there is a way to do this, but I'm stumped.

My Specs:

2 ASA 5505 series
ISP Modem (Which they control) - SMC SMCD3GN with DHCP disabled

Cisco Wireless :: Can't Set 1552 To Use 802.11a 40 MHz Channels

Apr 22, 2012

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.

Cisco Wireless :: 5508 - Not All 5 GHz Channels Being Used

Sep 30, 2012

I've got a deployment of 1142N APs using a pair of 5508 controllers running  We're in the United States and the country is set to "US".  I've added the UNII-2 channels to Auto-RF on the controllers via "config advanced 802.11a channel add 100" and so forth.  According to the output of "
show advanced 802.11a channel", I've enabled every 5 GHz channel that's legal for use in the US:
802.11a 5 GHz Auto-RF Channel List
Allowed Channel List......................... 36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64,100, 104,108,112,116,132,136,140, 149,153,157,161,165
My confusion comes because the automatic assignment of 5 GHz channels is heavily biased toward just a few of them, with most of the available space being ignored.  Here are the 5 GHz channel assignments from a large, single-story building with 31 APs:
(qty 2) 36
(qty 6) 40
(qty 5) 44
[ code].....
A total of nine channels are used (two of them only once) while twelve other channels are ignored completely.  Many of these APs are close enough to hear one another, so assigning seven of them to ch. 48 makes no sense.
Looking at my campus as a whole, I've got numerous APs using channels 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, and 165.  I've got at least one each using channels 52, 56, 60, 64, 112, 116, and 132.  Nothing at all is on 100, 104, 108, 136, and 140.  I am using 20 MHz wide channels, between, so all are independent.
Can anyone shed light on A) why my distribution is so heavily skewed toward the first nine channels, and B) how I can learn whether certain channels are being avoided due to the presence of radar, etc, on the frequency?  I'd like to take full advantage of 5 GHz by having as little channel re-use as possible.

I am trying to set up a DMZ on my Cisco ASA 5505, so that the wireless clients are connected behind the DMZ, the LAN clients are connected behind the inside interface and both groups of clients can get to the Internet.  I have been able to configure the ASA for both wireless and LAN, but the wireless clients still cannot get to the Internet.  The LAN clients can get to the Internet.  I do not want the wireless clients and the LAN clients to be able to be able to communicate with each other. What commands do I need to run in order to allow the wireless clients to access the Internet?

Cisco :: ASA 5505 - Setting A VPN Connection

Apr 4, 2011

I am wondering if this Cisco ASA 5505 Box is overkill for what I need?I have just become network admin to a small office that host two domains.


Some of the clients are requesting a connection to the office from remote locations for file access and what not. So would implementing a Cisco ASA 5505 be overkill? I am a bit nervous of going forward as I have never had to "setup" an ASA box and dont want to kill the network.If I should NOT use this box, what should I use for a VPN connection?

Cisco WAN :: Setting Up Routes On ASA 5505?

Dec 12, 2012

I'm trying to set up a Cisco ASA 5505. I'm mainly setting things up through ASDM but I also have console access. Right now while I'm setting it up I have the outside/Vlan2 port attached to my existing network and a laptop connected to the inside/Vlan1 port. More info about that:
interface Vlan1
nameif inside
security-level 100


Before I added that last "" entry, the ASA would not see anything on the internet. Now I can ping any external IP address from the router's console. However, the laptop I have connected to the 'inside' port still cannot reach any IP address outside the network. Every time I try to add a similar route for the 'inside' interface, I get the following error: "You have another route configured for this network any which has same gateway and same metric 1. You cannot add a duplicate route." I know I'm misunderstanding something here. In order to make devices connected to the 'inside' port connect to the internet, I need to set up a new route that will direct these devices to, right?

Cisco WAN :: Setting Up ASA 5505 Behind 5510?

Aug 14, 2011

My company has leased some office space to an outside company that handed me a 5505 and said "We want to VPN to our HQ through your Internet". I have two issues: I need this to work and I need to be able to access the 5505 from the management network. I don't care about the VPN aspect as much as making sure that I have basic communication down. I have everything configured per the diagram, but I can't ping the 5505 outside (Vlan 2) interface. I want to be able to configure and test the VPN setup on the 5505 from Putty on my PC.
The default route on the 5520 sends traffic to and the default route on the 5510 sends traffic to the WAN interface. I added this route on the 5510:
I still can't ping the default gateway on the 5505. There is a switch between my PC and the 5520 but the default route passes the traffic to the 5520. However on my tracert I don't even get to the 5520. What's going on here? Do I have to add a route to the switch just to manage the ASA 5505?

Cisco Wireless :: 2504 Controller - Can AP Be Set With Static Channels

Nov 11, 2012

We have a Cisco 2504 controller and approximately 35 AP's. Some of the AP's are located directly above each other (on another floor). When I run a basic annalyzer, it appears that there is some adjacent AP traffic, the controller has some of the close AP's with the same channel, so there is some RF interferance. The AP's currently are all setup for "G" and majority of the AP's are 1200 series, most of them are 1242's. Should and can the AP's be set with static channels so that there is no adjacent signals? If so where in the controller can that be done?

Cisco VPN :: Setting Up 5505 VPN For Windows 7 Client

Feb 16, 2013

I have a client that has a 5505 installed. They want to VPN in with their Win7 laptop, but they don't want to shell out $1000 for the 10-pack Cisco VPN client.I have successfully setup the clientless VPN, and they can, through a browser, get to their files, but they'd like to map network drives so it's just like they're in the office.I tried setting the IP Sec up on the 5505, and then using  the built-in Win7 VPN network connection, but no go.I also do everything through the ASDM, but I realize some things cannot be done. I'd prefer to use the ASDM!Anyone else get this configured? 99% of what I see out here is how to connect the 5505 for site-to-site VPN.

I got a new HP laptop running Windows 7. When I turn on my laptop, my wireless is off. So I click on F12 (my wireless button), to activate my wireless. The orange light turns blue. Even though the light indicates that my wireless is on, I have to go to device manager>networking>802.11n>advanced then activate my radio for my laptop to pick up the wireless signals. The problem is that I have to do this every time I turn on my laptop, and its getting quite repetitive.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 Broadcasting Two 2.4 MHz Channels?

Oct 30, 2012

I set up EA6500.  All kinds of problems with anything on the 2.4 MHz band.  My wireless desktop on the 5.0 MHz band was flawless.  So I ran Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector (freeware).  The router is transmitting two 2.4 MHz signals!  One is the SSID I set up and named.  The other one is identical in every way except that the BSSID is slightly different.  It is a non-broadcasted SSID that shows up on every device as "Other Network."  I was on the phone with Cisco Support tonite, and they were great as usual but had no answer.  If you change the channel on the 2.4 MHz band, the shadow network also changes to the same channel (this blew the Tech's mind).  We reset the router to factory settings and started over.  They are calling me back tomorrow.  This router has great features on paper, but so far, it has not delivered.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v1 Never Selects DFS Channels?

Jan 31, 2013

The Cisco E4200 is supposed to support something called DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection).  These are wifi channels that, due to radar operating on the same frequencies in certain areas of the US, the FCC requires devices using them to do what's called "radar avoidance" -- they're supposed to scan the channel periodically and, if a radar signal is detected on said channel, they have to vacate the channel for a specified period of time (typically around 30 minutes).  Because of this, a DFS channel cannot be selected manually by the user -- it has to be selected automatically and vacated automatically in case radar is detected.  So, I have my E4200 channel set to "Auto(DFS)"
The list of WLAN channels is here: [URL]
More background: each allowed 5 GHz channel is 20 MHz wide in the US.  However 802.11n does what's called "channel bonding" -- it actually uses two channels side-by-side for increased throughput.  E4200 owners will notice a channel width setting and one of the options is 40 MHz or Auto (20 MHz or 40 MHz) -- this is what uses two channels combined.  I happen to have this option set to "Auto (20 MHz or 40 MHz)".
I discovered, through experimentation, that the router will ALWAYS select channel 149/153 as the operating channel if there are no other wireless APs in the area (channel 149 as primary and channel 153 as secondary).  I always wanted to see the AP select a DFS channel, so I brought home a bunch of access points and started occupying spectrum.  I put AP #1 on channel 149/153 and rebooted my E4200, at which point it picked channel 157/161.  So I put AP #2 on channel 157/161 and rebooted the E4200, and it skipped channel 165 (note that there's not enough spectrum up there for 40 MHz, which is probably why it got skipped) and selected channel 36/40.  I put AP #3 on channel 36/40 and rebooted the E4200 and to no surprise it picked channel 44/48.  So I put AP #4 on channel 44/48 and it 149/153?!?!
Just to be certain that there isn't a certain threshold required to force the AP to select a DFS channel, I moved all 4 APs RIGHT NEXT TO the E4200 such that their signal strengths exceeded -40 dBm, and then rebooted the E4200.  It STILL picked channel 149/153!
Just what are the criteria required for the E4200 to select a DFS channel?!?  DFS is advertised in the user menu, but I can't find any way to get the AP to select one of those channels.  Does the AP *really* support them, or does it just say it does?  If the E4200 does NOT really support DFS, then Cisco/Linksys should remove the term "DFS" from the user menu -- it is deceptive!!
Oh, I should mention that I'm in Santa Clara County -- Saratoga, CA.  I checked the FCC database on radars and as far as I can tell, there are NO radars on DFS frequencies around here.

Cisco Firewall :: Setting Up Port Forwarding ASA 5505

Mar 15, 2012

We are trying to setup our ASA 5505 to do port forwarding to multiple internal servers and have run into some issues. A little background on what we are trying to do.
We have 1 static external IP. Internally we have one exsisting server ( that has port 80 forwarded to it and another exsisting server ( that has port 443 forwarded to it. Both of these servers are serving seperate web apps to our employees who of course use them offsite. We have now added an additional server ( that needs to use both ports 80 and 443. Is there any way to set it up so that these ports can be forwarded to all the servers that need them? Also, how would this work as far knowing what traffic will need to go to which server even though it is using the same port?
The equipment is: ASA 5505ASA Version 7.2(4)ASDM Version 5.2(4)   I appologize in advance if what I'm trying to do is difficult/impossible. I inherted the ASA 5505 at this location and I was not here when it was initially installed. In fact no one on staff was here when it was initially installed. I did manage to find the passwords to it though. I'm not at all familiar with the ASA 5505 or Cisco secuirty appliances in general.

Cisco Wireless :: Manually Add Access Point To 2504 Wireless Controller

Sep 18, 2012

We have a 2504 Wireless Controller and it works great!We currently have 6 Access Points (Aironet 1252) connected.We just added the sixth one a few weeks ago and with a properly configured and fully functioning Wireless Controller, it was super easy.Now, I have been assigned to add another Access Point, but at a remote site.The plan is to have up to three or more APs at this remote location and we want them to talk back to the Wireless Controller.We have plenty of licences on our current Wireless Controller.Do do not want to spend the funds for another Wireless Controller and more licenses.
1. How does one manually add a Aironet 1252 to the 2504 Wireless Controller
2. If the AP is on a different subnet than the Wireless Controller, how does one get it registered?
3. The best for last: Can a Aironet 1252 talk to a 2504 Wireless Controller over a WAN link?

So i have question: why i cant use this 5gHz range when its legal in my country?May be Linksys support watch on this problem and release new firmware for Russia with support of this channels?Also i knew that E3200 have this range enabled on default FW, but not on EA3500.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Does The E3000 Support 5GHz Channels

Jul 23, 2011

I have read various forum postings saying to get the best performance from a wifi router you have to use channel 149 or greater and that 36-48 have a weaker signal strength and thus less range/speed.I live in New Zealand and when I select the wireless channel drop list for the 5GHz band it only lists 5 options - Auto (dfs), 36, 40, 44 and 48. I have read forum posts of people stating you should switch to 149 or greater and I have seen screenshots showing the drop list with 149 selected. But I don't have that option.If I check the Status > Wireless page it shows that channel 36 is being used (for Auto).Am I doing something wrong? Do E3000's in this part of the world not support 149 etc?I spoke in a live chat to a support rep who told me that all E3000's are the same everywhere in the world and there was little to no difference in firmware between them. I was also told that channels 36-48 are high gain channels and so there is no need for the other channels, which contradicts other articles I have read which state 36-48 are weaker channels.
