Cisco 541N with multiple VLAN SSID's.
Posted on 2010-11-11
I am setting up a Cisco 541N wireless access point. I have the primary (VLAN 1) SSID up and working with no problems whatsoever. However, I would like to setup a second VLAN/SSID for guests to use. This would be setup with a different security scheme.
For example, the primary SSID named WAP-1 is set as Static-WEP, does not broadcast the SSID, and uses MAC filtering to allow on those MAC's in the list to connect. Ok, no problem, works great.
The second SSID named WAP-2 is set as WPA-Personal with WPA, WPA2 and TKIP, CCMP (AES).
Here is my problem. When a laptop connects to the WAP-1 SSID it works like a champ and pulls a DHCP IP address from the network, and goes on its merry way. However, when that same laptop connects to the WAP-2 SSID it connects without any problems, but never is able to resolve and IP address and therefore has no connectivity.
Is there some setting on the Cisco 541N that I am missing to make two different SSID's work?
Thank you in advance,
