We have a Cisco wireless controller in a Cisco 6509 that maganes our internal wireless. We have no issues with any other devices connecting to our internal wireless but we cannot get any Androids to connect. The Android will pull an internal wireless IP but it cannot get to the internet.

    is it getting the correct gateway ip? I had issues with my sons android phone on home network as the IP details can be difficult to drill down to compared to an iPhone

    it pulls an internal IP address. I cannot ping our gateway or the IP address of the Wism controller. I can take an iPhone and connect to our internal wireless and I have no issues.
