Hi all. This is my first post.

I need help to connect an AP wap4410n to a Catalyst 4506 (actually there is a switch between the AP and the Catalyst but, because the behavior is the same, I simplified the scenario for test purposes).

I must broadcast from the AP two SSID on two different VLAN: one for students on a VLAN (116), and another for Faculty staff on a different VLAN (120) with a completely different addressing range.

This is the VLAN configuration for the WAP4410N:


My problem: If I connect the AP to a port on the Catalyst configured to use a single VLAN (either 116 or 120)

interface GigabitEthernet2/18

switchport access vlan 116

no cdp enable


I can configure normally the AP and navigate from client connected (on that VLAN);

however, if I connect the AP on a port configured for more VLAN

interface GigabitEthernet2/18

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport trunk allowed vlan 116,120

switchport mode trunk

no cdp enable


I can't configure neither navigate.

What am I doing wrong? what a mistake I'm doing?

PS: I also tried with a Dell AP 2690, similar configuration: same behavior !!

Thanks in advance !!
