I came across this error where access points had disconnected from the Wireless LAN Controller over the past weeks and never reconnected to the WLC. There was no evident logs in the syslog of the WLC, but when we connected to the console port of the access point, we could see the follow errors: *Oct […]

Can you run different software version on your wireless LAN Controllers and still use mobility anchors on your WLAN?
My first meeting with the C1532 access point tripped me somewhat. Due to the fact that this outdoor access point is mesh capable, it differs somewhat from your ordinary indoor access points.
Many wireless setups uses one SSID, where a range of different users are assigned different VLAN IDs depending on a number of criteria, such as department, geo-location and so forth. But when using Cisco FlexConnect, the setup is somewhat “hidden”. An example of such a setup is shown below: One of the pre-requisits for FlexConnect […]
From time to time, IT personell find it feasible to purchase autonomous access points for later converting them to lightweight access points which connects to a central Wireless LAN Controller (WLC). Fortunately for us, the conversion from autonomous to lightweight is simple and straight forward. In this example I’ve converted a SAP1602i access point.
