Wireless Domain Services (WDS) is a feature in Cisco IOS Software. WDS is a core functionality that enables other features such as Fast Secure Roaming, Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE) interaction, and Radio Management. Relationships between the Access Points (APs) that participate in WDS must be established before any of these other WDS-based features can work. One of the primary purposes for WDS is to eliminate the need to have the authentication server validate user credentials every time. This reduces the time required for client authentications.
When configuring WDS on the network, APs on the wireless LAN use the WDS device (either an AP or a switch configured as the WDS device) to provide fast, secure roaming for client devices and to participate in radio management. If you use a switch as the WDS device, the switch must be equipped with a Wireless LAN Services Module (WLSM). An AP configured as the WDS device supports up to 60 participating APs. A WLSM-equipped switch supports up to 300 participating APs.

Hello! Customer is replacing a 2504 with two 3504 in HA. Also replacing APs 1702i with 2802i. For faster migration, software version was kept the same, 220.127.116.114's configuration was uploaded via GUI and converted using TAC's WLC Config Converter a...
I'm installing a 1562E with an ANT2513 however I cannot find how to change the AP to use 2.4GHz on ports 1 and 2 then 5GHz on ports 3 and 4 which appears to be a requirement for this antenna. Running 8.5.161 code currently.
I have some Cisco Aironet 1700 APs (AIR-CAP1702i-E-K9) I'm trying to add to my LAN, however I'm unable to connect and configure them by every method I have tried. I can see the APs connect to the main switch and are assigned an IP address via DHCP. H...
Hi looking for a little advice, what exactly is 'Signal Quality' shown in the attached image (taken from Cisco controller)?Is it the same as RSSI (dBm) or SNR? And what do the values on the image tell me about all three user's Wi-Fi connections? Is 0dB go...
