How to configure the same SSID for multiple VLANs on WLCs
Unlike a distributed architecture with autonomous APs, a centralized architecture with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) does not allow the wireless LAN (WLAN) service set identifier (SSID) to be mapped to multiple virtual LANs (VLANs). This is because the configuration in the WLAN controller (WLC) applies to all the access points (APs) that are registered to it. But, if there is another controller, the WLAN can be mapped to a different VLAN.
When there are two controllers, both of the controllers cannot be the primary. Only one controller can be the primary, and the other must be the secondary. As far as the AP that registers to the controller is concerned, it is recommended to set the switchport that the AP connects to as the access port, because the client VLAN is not related to the VLAN on which the AP sits.
When the primary controller changes on the AP, the AP automatically reboots and joins that controller, given these configurations:
The mobility domain is configured identically on both of the controllers.
The mobility peers are configured on each of the controllers.
The virtual interface IP is identical on both of the controllers.
With the mobility configured, each controller is aware of the controllers that are available for the AP to join. The controllers communicate this information amongst themselves, even before the AP decides to change controllers. The specification of the name on the AP merely triggers that movement to a new controller.
Hello There is a site where a wireless environment was built with CT3504 (users are factory equipment). All AP power levels are at their maximum (it is said to be difficult to lower because the strength at which the client receives signals is no...
I have a Cisco 1562E - 9120 and i want to extend an antenna about 45ft out to another location. can this WAP support this. Is the documentations the support this theory? or test confirmation possibly? also would I need a specific Co...
We just got a new 9800-40 in and I can't figure out where to go to map an interface to an SSID like we do on the previous controllers. I was trying to follow this document, but the commands don't work. https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/c...
Hello, I've a Cisco WLC 2054 with 3 of Aironet 3802 AP's. I would like to publish 3 SSID's/WLANs(SSID1+2+3) and 1 of the 3 SSID's (SSID 3) should only published on one special AP together with the other SSIDs. To do this, I create 2 A...
