Question about Cisco Aironet 1242ag 802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Point
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.
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.

This drop is usually seen when a port is not configured correctly. This drop is incremented when a packet cannot be successfully forwarded within switch ports as a result of the default or user configured switch port settings. The following configurations are the likely reasons for this drop:
•The security appliance is connected to another Cisco device that has Ethernet keepalives. For example, Cisco IOS software uses Ethernet loopback packets to ensure interface health. This packet is not intended to be received by any other device; the health is ensured just by being able to send the packet. These types of packets are dropped at the switch port, and the counter increments.
•The VLAN only has one physical interface, but the DEST of the packet does not match the MAC address of the VLAN, and it is not the broadcast address
Throubleshoot these and see if any of them apply to you. Thank you for choosing fixya.com.
