help adding second Wi-Fi network on same AP
Posted on 2014-01-10
I am looking for assistance in trying to setup a second wireless network so we would have two SSID’s (one for public and one for private users).
Our network is setup with native VLAN1 for wired computers and VLAN107 for wireless computers and everything is working great. I’m trying to add VLAN110 as the additional wireless network.
We are using a Cisco WLC2112 and 12 Cisco LAP1131 access points for the wireless network.
The wired network us using Cisco 3500 series POE switches and a Cisco 1800 series router.
The ports on the switch that connect to the AP’s are configured as follows:
switchport access vlan 107
switchport mode access
I’m having trouble getting my head around how to setup the second wireless network on its own VLAN (VLAN110), while still using the existing access points. I have added the additional wireless network on the WLC2112, have setup a DHCP server for the new VLAN, but it’s getting an IP address from the same scope as VLAN107.
Where do I configure the new VLAN information on the wireless controller?
Should the ports on the switch that are connected to the AP’s be changed to trunk ports to accommodate both VLANs?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
