Cisco CBW240 Acess Point VLAN Configuration

AlexM445

Hello All,

I am a beginner when it comes to setting up cisco networks. I am configuring a CBW240 Access Point. I have four WLANS (Test1 - Test4) all are mapped to separate VLANS (VLAN 1 - 4) with the management VLAN 8 and Native VLAN 9.  I have established a static IP for both of the IPs on the AP. The configuration communication works fine when connected to the switch port as Access VLAN 8. When I change the switch to a trunk port, I lose all communication between the AP and the switch for configuration and wireless. What is the process for configuring the primary POE port on the AP to trunk mode?

 

Thank You

AM

        - Make sure that the native vlan on the switch and the AP match ,

i would suggested to not use VLAN 1 for WLAN config, try to avoide

make sure native VLAN configured on switch port with Trunk config

can you post the config (make sure you disable smartport config)

Hi

  Put the management vlan as native vlan, you dont need to have both. The idea of native vlan is exactly to allow management traffic. Management traffic is not tagged by default.

 Then, put the switch port in trunk with nativa vlan on it

interface gix/x

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk native vlan 8

Thank you all for the responses. A combination of not using VLAN 1 and making the Native VLAN the same as the management VLAN has been successful. Thank you again for the help from everyone.
