Wireless clients not able to obtain IP address.

Recently I setup an 1130 AP, it's group broadcasts two SSID's. One for users and one for guests. It's been working solid now for several months. Now users are reports that on the public SSID they are getting dropped and can't reconnect, they time out. Usually they can connect to the SSID without security, and login with a username and password provided by the secretary. I've tried troubleshooting this to the best of my ability but am stuck. Any ideas?

WLAN ID 2, that's for the public and WLAN ID 3 for the secure. I can't seem to telnet of ssh to the ap itself.

So you have an autonomous AP?  Well you need to be able to telnet/ssh or console and provide the show run-config.

Thanks,

No scott, it's a lightweight, I'm going to enable ssh and see what I can find.

If it's lightweight, you need to access the cli on the WLC and issue the show wlan   Not from the AP.

Thanks,

Interface........................................ vlan 8

I would connect a wired laptop to a port on the same switch as the WLC on vlan 8 and see if you can get an ip address.  What is handing out dhcp?  You might want to disable dhcp proxy on the WLC.

Thanks,

Scott

Re: Wireless clients not able to obtain IP address.

I can't seem to telnet of ssh to the ap itself.

By default, Telnet and SSH to the AP is disabled.

On the WLC, post the output to the command "sh interface detail vlan 8".

Hi,

With the show run config please send the switchport cong as well. In this case we have two WLANs so we need to make sure that the switchport is configured as trunk mode and the vlans mapped to both the WLAN ID 2 and 3 are allowed on it.

We also need to make sure that the wired portion is working fine as Wireless is an extension to the Wired configuration.

Thanks and regards,

Manas Pratap Singh.

Where would the switchport config be running at? Here's the thing we're running the ap connected to a netgear smart switch as opposed to a cisco at this location. I'm not familiar with netgear smart switches in the least. I checked the run config on the router at the location, shouldn't there be a trunk mode set on one of the ports back to hq?

The WLC is trunked to the switch correct?

Thanks,

Scott, this is at a satellite campus, and it looks to be trunked. The ap show fine with out errors and all the configurations look right. Contacts on site say that the problem seems to be intermittent. Mostly apple users seem to be effected by this. Where they can connect and after a period of time get dropped then when they try to connect back to the public ssid it times out trying to obtain an IP address. After cycling power on the access point, some user's that were connected seem to be connecting back to the ap automatically, as I can see the clients connected. Weird thing is yesterday when I left my android phone nor laptop were able to connect, contacted site this morning and they said that they were doing fine!?!

Re: Wireless clients not able to obtain IP address.

Check the size and utilization of DHCP pool and lease time.  Lease time should be small, 300 sec.

Wireless clients not able to obtain IP address.

Looking on the controller that the AP is associated with on the dhcp scope I see that the public wireless is only from 192.168.1.50 - 192.168.1.100. So that needs to be changed, and the lease time is set to 86400. I can change the size of both, you mind me asking what the lease time effects exactly? I'm trying to get a better understanding, also I'm assuming this only effects ap's that broadcast this ssid from this controller? Would I need to do this as well on my other controllers that broadcast this public ssid, or can it be set from the wcs to effect all controllers? Thanks for everyones time, with your help I've been able to understand how this all comes together!
