Cisco WLAN Controller 4400 with multiple VLANS and SSID's
Posted on 2014-02-11
Have a sports event coming up and have a Cisco WLC 4400 that I want to deploy with multiple VLANS and SSID's. I have a router with VLANs as such:
0 Management 192.168.1.x
10 Staff 192.168.10.x
20 Spare 192.168.20.x
30 Timing 192.168.30.x
40 Athletes 192.168.40.x
50 Public 192.168.50.x
The router has DHCP pools for each VLAN, and a trunk going to a 3560 POE switch. I have ports 1-5 configured for VLAN 10-50 respectively, and plugging into them I can get an IP address and ping the router.
Now I need to expand this down to the WLC, so that I can deploy 12 LWAP's with SSID's of Staff, Timing, Athletes, and Public on their respective VLAN's. How to configure this? Is it better to have the WLC be the DHCP server or can I keep that on the router so that wired clients are also serviced?
