Client cannot associate to 5G SSID !!!

Hi wireless expert:


These days,i have a problem that is all clients cannot associate to 5G wifi,only 2.4G OK.There are wlc and AP module as below:


WLC: 2504   ; software version:8.2.121.5

AP: AP1852


i have run "debug client xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx" command to try get the associate info.but unfortunately,there is no any info display.

other info:5G channel don't have interference,and channel  utilization is so low.


So i don't know what reason about this problem,i guess the ap drop all traffic of 5G ,Can you tell me the probably reason?

of course,and we can see the ssid about the 802.11a-only,just cannot associate it.
You also give me a idea,maybe it's a problem about wpa2,but it operate well before.But i will change it to test.

thanks

disable 802.11b/g/n (2.4 Ghz) on the wlan and try to connect a clinet to ssid with 5Ghz only...and see the logs in WLC.

If possible paste here as well to analyze the root cause.....

1. Does the client actually support 5.0 Ghz?
2. Can you try with OPEN authentication?

Hi Leo the client support 5g,and all devices cannot connect the 5g ssid.i have try policy to open,wpa psk,wpa2 psk,wpa+wpa2 psk. Those all failed.we can see the error:cannot connect to ‘SSID-name’. I am not sure whether there is a abnormal about wlc2504+ap1852.... That’s a so hard issue

Could be CSCus83638.

Is there a reason why the controller/AP is running an old Engineering release image? Is it possible to upgrade the firmware of the controller?

Highlighted

yes,this release is design for end user,these days,it happened all kinds of problem.for example,ap1852 disconnect,and rejoin to wlc2504,and it always happened .sometimes,it cannot join wlc2504……

it probably hit this bug,i will test the workaround

thanks

See if it's possible to upgrade the firmware of the controller to, say, the latest 8.5.

Highlighted

ok ,i will try to do it

Same thing.  8.2.164.0 and 3700's - just wasn't making any sense.  Restarted 2 of the AP's and now they respond and will associate; although I gather this may be a temporary fix.  Problem is - how do you even FIND which AP's are in this state ?  I just hit the ones that really should have had connections and hadn't, but this is pretty tedious.
