CAPWAP - Upload issue

Hello,

 

We are using  Cisco 5508 wireless controller (8.2.166.0)

 

We mostly use LAP AIR-AP1832I-E-K9 access points, atm there is 130 lwap's registred to this controller.

 

Recently we started to have upload issues with guestnet WLAN, configured to use CAPWAP. Download speed's are fine, but uplaod is almost 0.

 

Setup, roughly explained goes :

CE (lwap => cisco switch => cisco router) DMVPN connection to DATA center PE ( CONTROLLER => firewall *virutal applience)

Setup from controller to firewall uses QinQ trunnking.

 

Flex-connect WLAN setup doesnt have this issue, everything works fine.

 

Do you have any idea what could be wrong ?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Regards,

I had a problem where the mobilty express AP's were ordered instead of Capwap. I had to console on to each AP and run AP-Type capwap and discovered that even then some of them had not joined. I then typed - capwap ap primary-controller ip address 10.1.1.1 

 

The AP restarted and synced to the controller and uploaded the firmware. 

 

Not sure if it will help you but that is what I did.

This bit is already done, all access-points are already registered on controller with same firmware.

Could be an MTU issue here. Check your configured MTU on the WLC and if you actually bring it through the tunnel. Also check the TCP MSS setting on the WLC, you maybe need to reduce it a little.

If you test with a wired client, in the same VLAN as the wireless clients, do you get better speeds?

Indeed TCP MSS setting on the WLC decrease resolves issue, temporary. We used value 1250.

 

It works OK for couple of days and than problem occurs again, to resolve its enough just to press apply same existing settings. It's as access points stops to listen controller.

 

Tell me more about MTU on the WLC ? I can't find that settings, what do you advise to set ?

 

Note : DMVPN tunnel which connects RTR (and access points) to Data centre where controller is located has this settings

 

ip mtu 1400

ip tcp adjust-mss 1360

tunnel path-mtu-discovery

Sounds like a case for TAC.
