Cisco 1242ag broadcast multi SSID issue

I have a 1242ag wireless AP configured for multiple SSID's and vlans. All works fine. The issue I have is when I save the config & reboot or power down the AP for any extended period of time and power it up again, it stops broadcasting? the dot11radio0 interface is up and the config is as I left it. The only way I can get it to work again is to rebuild the config. Am I missing something?

I can't past the config due to the limits on the forum. Which wort of points out the first limitation with the Beta.

thanks

It stops broadcasting the SSID? Make sure it's configured to broadcast the SSID firstly... secondly, test whether it is actually working but just not broadcasting the SSID.

Set a client PC to the same SSID and get all the parameters identical (encryption, user/pass etc). Try connecting again. If it connects then it's just the SSID that isn't working... if there is no joy, then it is just the SSID that isn't broadcasting, not the whole AP.

Also, enable some debugging for the radio0 while it is not working. It might shed some light.

When I enable the vlan option in an EAP9550 I lose wireless access


Bruce,

Is the goal to use a different VLAN for each access point (AP)? If so then you will need to configure each NetGear port to use the same VLAN as the AP that is connected to it. You will then need either a switched virtual interface (SVI) for each VLAN on the NetGear or a trunk port (802.1q) from the NetGear to the Cisco. I'm not sure the NetGear will support SVIs but it will support trunks. An SVI basically creates a gateway for each VLAN's subnet. For example, let's say AP1 uses VLAN 10 and the subnet is 10.0.10.0/24 while AP2 uses VLAN 20 with a 10.0.20.0/24 subnet. The NetGear will need 2 SVIs, one for each VLAN/subnet. The first SVI for VLAN 10 can be configured with IP address 10.0.10.1/24 while the second SVI can be configured with 10.0.20.1/24 for VLAN 20. These IP addresses will be the gateway for each VLAN. Finally, the NetGear would need to act as a router and route each VLAN's subnet to the Cisco device. Once again I don't believe the FS726TP supports this.

The other solution would be to create a VLAN trunk port between the NetGear and the Cisco device but I believe the Cisco RV042 does not support trunking. If it does the trunk would be configured to carry all of the VLANs to the Cisco device which would then have SVIs created on it.

If neither of the above is possible you would need to use the same VLAN for each AP and each of the interfaces on the NetGear and Cisco devices which negates the need for the VLANs.

I hope this helps.

Problem with the Cisco Aironet 1242AG Wireless Access Point , very low signal strength


Hello,
Please ensure that:
1.The wireless access point is not in close proximity to a source of interference,e.g a microwave transmitter or microwave oven. 2.Ensure that it's not placed in an area prone to physical obstruction, e.g behind a high wall or where people pass through(because our bodies have water which absorbs such waves!).In that case, re-position the wireless access point to another area, e.g a roof top. 3. If the wireless access point is in vicinity of other wireless access point, ensure that CSMA (Collision Sense Multiple Avoidance) scheme is enabled for the device.
I hope these solutions solve your problem. Have a great time ahead.

Configure cisco aironet wifi


if ur using IOS autonomous AP, then u'll need to configure the bvi interface to get an ip address and then enable the interface. once it has an ip, u'll need to configure the ssid, vlan, etc - choices include doing so with the CLI or web page GUI. U'll need to enable the built-in web server then u can access it via the web interface to setup the ssid, any vlans, radius, etc. good luck.
