Hi,

I´ve a WCSC with 3 controllers and dozens of AP configured. Since this enviroment was installed there are many warnings about Rogue AP.

For example:
Rogue AP '5c:33:8e:df:48:9d' with SSID 'Orange-151c' and channel number '9' is detected by AP 'ALO-R4-P4-AP42' Radio type '802.11b' with RSSI '-89' and SNR '6'.

Open in new window


What can I do? Must I enable a rogue policy in order to improve the wireless enviroment?

thanks and regards

Unless you've got an MSE, Infamus' link won't help you.  You can't use WIPS without an MSE.  You can use IDS but that's something different.

If you're only seeing Rogue AP alerts I'd not worry about it.  That's just telling you that the APs are seeing other wireless networks and alerting you to the fact.  Unless you see wired rogue APs, or rogue APs with the same SSID you don't need to worry too much.

On that note, I'd leave Rogue AP detection turned on and just acknowledge the events in WCS on a regular basis.
