3x AIR-AP1141N; no WLC

How can i best setup the following:

Switch: 2960-24PC-S

AP: AIR-AP1141N

I have no Wireless Lan Controller.

I want to setup 2 Vlan's on the 2960, 1vlan for wired pc's, and 1 vlan for the AP's. I will do dhcp on both vlans.
I want to know how the best method is to create a GUEST ssid and WPA security on those 3 ap's. Can it be done on 1 ap, who delivers it to the other 2, or do i need to configure all three of them?

Hi,

If you do not have the WLC and if the APs are in Autonomous Mode then there is no go rather to configure all the 3...

Hi,

from the descriptions i can see that you are planning to configure 2 VLANs, please let me know if you need to communicate between the Wired and Wireless or not??

The thing i want to do is:

vlan1: private (2 computers)

vlan2: wlan, guests, 3ap's

At first i didn't want a connection between these two. I was going to see if i could do the routing on the 2960s, or if i'd need an external router.

But if i wanted to write an script (with Auto-IT) to automate generation of WPA security on the three AP's, i'd need to contact the ap's on vlan2 from a computer on vlan1 to change the security. My boss wants to change the WPA-passwords every month. But he didn't want the Wireless Lan Controller

I have one IP externall ip-address.

Hi,

No problem!!

Changing the WPA PSK key just takes less that a minute

Here is the config that you can use..

On the switch..

===========

en

conf t

int fa 0/6

switchport trunk encap dot1Q

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk native vlan 1

no shut

end

On the AP

=========

en

conf t

dot1 ssid

guest-mode

auth open

auth key-management wpa version 2

wpa-psk ascii

vlan 2

end

int dot11 0

ssid

encryption vlan 2 mode ciphers aes-ccm

no shut

end

int dot11 0.1

encap dot1Q 1 native

bridge-group 1

end

int gig 0.1

encap dot1Q 1 native

bridge-group 1

end

int dot11 0.2

encap dot1Q 2

bridge-group 2

end

int gig 0.2

encap dot1Q 2

bridge-group 2

end

en

conf t

bridge irb

bridge 1 protocol ieee

bridge i route ip

end

en

conf t

int bvi 1

description ### io address in the VLAN 1 subnet##

ip address

no shut

end

The config will help you in getting the comunication up and running between the Ap and the switch and the communication between the VLAN will also be possible..

Lemme know if this answered your question!!
