How to set up a Cisco 2100 WLAN system

Posted on 2012-04-04
Last Modified: 2012-04-12

I have a new Cisco 2100 Wireless LAN Controller and I'm trying to get it connected to my Windows 2003 Server running a new instance of Internet Authentication Service.

Please note: I have never done this kind of set up before and am willing to blow anything away if needed.

Currently I have attached my running config but for some reason I'm not able to ping anything from the Cisco 2100 or from a client on the network but the two are connected to the same network. Could someone please look at the config and let me know what I need to do?

I'm looking to manage the new solution all in Active Director and allow users to connect to one wireless network and guests to another for internet access only.

Thanks for the help. I believe that got the server side set up. But when I try and access the wlan I'm not able to ping it or anything else. I have the config that I attached running. Any reason I could not get it going at this point or even ping it?

Can you ping the 2100 from your DHCP server?

What config is on your switch (specifically on the ports where the 2100 connects)?
