Hi,

We have cisco 2500 series controller and it is having 4 ports.

Can we design to connect one port with internet connection and other ports for
LAN?

Does Wireless controller supports Routing (static or Dynamic)?

Regards
Ramu

I believe that device is strictly Layer 2 and does not perform routing.

Soulja is correct - in a way.  L3 is not something any Cisco WLC can do.

However, if you have a guest SSID (for example) you could attach that SSID to a single interface which connects to a separate router which goes straight to the internet.

So for example, if WLC port 1 connects to your LAN and has 3 corporate SSIDs connected to it (using VLAN trunking), you could configure the Guest SSID to use port 2 which would take all Guest traffic straight to the internet via the connected router on port 2.

However, you couldn't use the router connected to port 2 to provide internet access to a SSID which uses an interface attached to port 1.

You would have to disable LAG on the WLC for this to work (if you're running code >=v7.4)
Make sense?
