Hi WLC 5508 with its AP3500 in network. The PC can receive two ssid from the AP.  When the PC uses first ssid, it would get 802.11a signal, while the PC uses the second ssid, it got 802.11n. My question is how we can change configuration in WLC so that the fist ssid has 802.11n and second one has 802.11a?  Thank you

we use gpo and certificate server to control access to our corporate wireless which works well for domain joined computers. Is a way to install the gpo and certificate on a device not joined to the domain?

I'm trying to setup another SSID on a Cisco 2504 WLC. I've mirrored (I believe) the settings of an already existing SSID/network with the difference of subnet, etc. The traffic is routed through a Cisco 2811 and various switches. The switch that identifies the VLANs, has also been configured accordingly. Could be problems in multiple places since I've done this a number of times, but never came across this issue.

To start, I can't ping the interface IP of that newly created SSID from any device, including the switch that the controller is connected to.



This is the config of the switch that the controller is connected to where the other networks work:

I figure if I can get to the interface IP (as usual), I'll be able to get to my DHCP server, get an address, and get to the internet.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have two WLANs at my site.  These are controlled by a Cisco WLC.  I am able to connect to the one of the WLANS and access the internet with no problem, but with the other WLAN, I can only connect, but am unable to get to the internet.  But if the Access Point is sitting in my office, I can connect and get internet access. This seems strange to me because the AP serves both WLANs.   I have uninstalled and reinstalled my network adapters.  I can ping both WLANs, but I can only connect to one of them and get internet access.  This is happening to no one else.  I figured it had something to do with my computer, but then I got another laptop put it in my office and it did the same thing.  What could be causing this?

We purchased a Kronos301 from Nexxt to be used as a repeater.  We follow the instructions but no internet.  We can see the kronos device in our mobile and even connect directly, but no internet.  We downloaded an apps that displays the wifi signal and also the kronos is read close to 190% mbps.

We have contacted Nexxt but it's a to/fro of emails with no solid answers.

Question,
  • When having a repeater configured to connect to the WiFi router, do the mobile devices also has to be configured to actual kronos301 device or the mobile just read in the amplify signal, no need to change the wifi setting on the mobile device?

  • also, when reaching the end of our wifi router signal range and supposedly entering the kronos301 range, there is no internet and the signal bars of the iphone/ipad stays the same or lower as to leaving the wifi router signal - how can we troubleshoot this?

Please advice

Hello, I got a few users that using Mac's os High Sierra and in their office, we have one guest Network, main office 2.4 and main office 5ghz but all day their systems keeps jumping on to the free Xfinity connection in the area. I have gone into network properties and removed all other connections and just added the main office connection and it still happens... what am I doing wrong?

as the datasheet indicates, AP 1131 has speed up to 54Mpbs using website speedtest.net to test. If we have only one user use the AP, the speed would be 54Mpbs when he is downloading a big file. if two users use the AP at the same time the speed for each user would be 27Mpbs. of course, the two users use the AP all the time and at the same time. that is why we suppose they are downloading a big file. this way we can compare the speed in different time. if four users are using the AP at the same to download a big file, can we say each one has speed at 13.5Mpbs? Thank you

Installed 2 APs and all worked fine

2 years later all is still working ok
iPhones etc can see APs all named different to the main router

BUT

Risco Viewpoint APs can’t see the SSIDs

Ubiquiti Nano-Stations M5 ( p-2-mp )

I have 4 Nano-M5s / 1 In AP mode and 3 in station mode ...

Until Monday the stations we are fine and connecting to the AP - 1 stopped.

Config looked fine / flashed to the latest firmware and even reset to factory.  Assumed that it was that M5 Station.  Took it back to our lab / configured another AP, and walla - it connected to problem.

So appears that something on the M5 AP is the problem.  

Is there a connection log that I can check on the station side ?

Any thoughts?

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Anyone knows Aruba controllers well?   They normally pass through the same VLAN on the main switch, or the management VLAN.
Wonder why Aruba not recommending doing a direct heartbeat between Active and Passive controllers.  Using 7030 controllers at this point.
Normally I do a direct heartbeat between Cisco controllers.  But Cisco has a dedicated HA port for this.  Arubas not.  7030 controllers have 8 fiber and 8 copper ports.
 Anyone knows about it and have an advice?

Hi Experts,

I use a freeradius 3.0 and OpenLDAP-Server acting as 802.1x authentication server.
Windows OS use EAP-PEAP encryption by default. That means Windows sends out an encrypted credential to my radius server, and I can not decode it to a clear text password. But without a clear text password, how can I do authenticating in ldap server?
And Does Freeradius 3.0.x support CHAP/MSCHAP authentication against ldap?. If it possible, how I configure it?

Thanks so much!!

WLC5508 manage a lot AP1131.  A few of users under one of the AP feel very slow about wifi.  We want to test 2.4GHz or 5 separately. but we only have one ssid, which might contains 2.4 and 5. How can we disable 2.4 or 5 and leave 5 or 2.4 to test each band's speed from WLC side or from user PC side? Thank you

Hi, dear all

I am not a cisco wireless expert, our company want to build a cisco wireless,
the requirement as below:
two SSID, one is 'Office', for our stuff.  the other is 'Guest', for our Guest, 'Office' and 'Guest' are in the different vlan, 'Office' needs set Radius, Guest doesn't need.

I have a WLC 2500 series, and some AP,could one WLC do that? should I use two WLC to finish the work?
pls kindly give me some suggestions if you have experience about wireless design for company.

Regards,
Kai

I have a Cisco RV134 Wireless Router in my basement near the back wall of my house. It is 3 feet from the basement ceiling under the family room.

My main office desk is in the kitchen (beside the family room) and I often (as now) use the kitchen table for my Laptop (which is Wireless and only Wired if I bring out my adapter dongle - no RJ45 jack as the laptop is too thin for that).

Using inSSider V4 (MetaGeek) I see 5 GHz signal strength from -59 to about -68 dBm.  2.4 GHz is a bit higher but nothing to be concerned about. Overall wireless performance in my office location is excellent and very (very) good most anywhere on the main floor.

My desktop computer is wired Ethernet and is on the office desk along with my printer which is networked.

I trust you have the picture here.

I want to put a small office (desk and chair) in my second floor Den for those times when I must engage in a telephone meeting and using the Kitchen office is inconvenient.  I have ordered a desk and chair from Staples and should have it next week. The Den office is at the front of the house .

Wi-Fi performance in the Den Office location is -66 dBm to -73 or so dBm or lower strength by a bar or two in my W-Fi Icon.  Sometimes I notice some lag in page load but nothing terrible.

It happens I have an CAT 5e Ethernet connection in the Den attached to my Cisco RV325 VPN main router. The Rogers Hitron Modem, the Cisco RV325 router, and the Cisco RV134 AC router are all on the same …

I have noticed on some Aruba wireless controllers the spanning tree is disabled.  Is there a reason to disable a spanning tree on aruba wifi controllers or on any wireless controllers?

We currently have 13 Access Points controlled by a Cisco WLC 2504.  We have two WLans - one for Guest and one for employees.  Our employees use WLan 1 which accesses the DHCP server on my domain.  The Guest uses WLAN 2 which access the DHCP on my router.  On my DHCP server we have two separate subnets with plenty of IP's available.  Due to some routing issues, I needed to use most of the available IP's for phones.  Once that was cleared up, those IP's are now free again.  My problem is that we are now unable to get an IPV4 address from the employee access point.   We have two subnets, so there are plenty.  What do I need to do to fix this issue.  Interesting enough when I create a separate vlan pn my router, any device connected to the employee access points gives me the error message - no internet access

In the groups of apartment that I stay, there's  a free Wifi for the community
which I could access from my phone/laptop when I move around the vicinity.
However, a reading room right in the centre of this area, the Wifi signal is
often cut off (or intermittently at 1 bar).

Is there anything I can get/install so that I could get the signal in the reading
room (which is a 5m x 3.5m room with glazed glass panels in front, a thick
wooden door & concrete walls on the roof & other sides of walls)?  Even if
I open the wooden door, the Wifi signal strength did not improve.

Until I shift my chair & laptop & sit just 1m outside the wooden door, then
I get 3-4 bar signal.

I don't mind a USB dongle with a 4m USB extender cable (which could be
slipped under the door but do recommend specific eBay/Amazon links
to the items that could be shipped to Singapore.

Btw, I don't have access to the AP and I can't get the management/admin
of this community to boost the signal so this is not an option.

This course will introduce you to the interfaces and features of Microsoft Office 2010 Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. You will learn about the features that are shared between all products in the Office suite, as well as the new features that are product specific.

I am having issues with a Cisco WLC wifi deployment using radius authentication setup on an NPS. User certificates are installed by Group Policy and users are able to connect and work just fine however if they move out of range for an extended period of time and return the wifi SSID says connecting but never connects until the user manually clicks disconnect and connect again which prompts them with the certificate and asks to connect. In extreme cases users have to restart there PCs to reconnect to the wifi. PS. - Enable Fast Reconnect is checked under the Microsoft Protected EAP (PEAP) settings.

I need to know how to Deny a laptop the ability to connect Wirelessly to all other Wireless networks Except for One, which is on an AT&T portable Hotspot - Mifi.
Using a GPO - Group Policy .   - If this can't be done using a GPO please let me know.
Note: The GPO should be applied to the " Computer " not the users account to deny access.

The laptop is a Windows 7 computer, logging into a Windows 2008r2 domain.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             I set up a Google Chromebook for my roommate tonight and connected it to our wireless network.  I simply selected our wireless, entered our password, and left the box below it checked by default which brings me to this upcoming question.  By leaving this checked, will it allow people outside of our home to automatically connect or share our wireless?  If so, how can I go back and uncheck or deselect it?  I did all of this in a hurry fashion, so, I might be mistaken on what was read.  I believe the area that was automatically checked had the message of allowing other devices within the home to share this network.  

              Any feedback provided in response to this question will be greatly appreciated.

              Thank you

              George
