Hi,

I am trying to configure 2 SSID's... one will be on a LAN which is allready done, and the other I want to configure as a public. I set up a vlan on one of the ports on an asa 5505 and it is passing out DHCP as well. Now I need to configure an 2504 Wireless Controller to to keep the WLAN's seperate.

Is it possible to set up one port on the Wireless Controller to pass traffic for a seperate wlan to the port configured on the asa?

Please see attached

Hi,

it is possible you, what type of ASA 5505 do you have?


If you not have sec + feature set you need to confure VLAN on netgear switch, and connect individual cables for booth vlans, if you have sec+ license you need to directly connect the 2504 to asa, ynd you need to configure trunk!

Is the question specifically to use one port on the WLC to send traffic to the ASA?  If so, you need multiple AP-Manager interfaces configured.  You should only connect directly to the ASA if you do this, otherwise connect to a switch and configure VLANs.  The WLC can tag traffic on separate VLANs, and you HAVE to do this unless you use RADIUS-based 802.1x dynamic VLANs.

So in short, connect your WLC to a switch.
Configure VLANs on switch.
Configure interface on ASA for both VLANs.
