Configuring an Cisco 1142, through a dumb switch to a 5508 controller.
Posted on 2016-08-23
In my environment i have several 1142 access points being managed by a 5508 controller.
usually the port the AP is configured in has the following configuration:
description Cisco AP-Flexconnect Port
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 8
srr-queue bandwidth share 10 10 60 20
mls qos trust dscp
auto qos voip trust
storm-control broadcast level bps 50m 25m
storm-control multicast level bps 50m 25m
storm-control action shutdown
macro description APPORT
spanning-tree link-type point-to-point
I need to take a dumb switch (3750x) that has been reset to factory defaults and is being used to do imaging ..etc. and plug a couple of the APs into it, to expand WIFI in a large GYM area.
the only configuration on those ports are:
swtichport mode encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
I do get POE to the AP, and it appears to be booting up, then just flashes green indefinitely. Any help getting my dumb switch to work with the access points would be appreciated.
