Do some switches block wing communication?
« on: November 24, 2016, 06:20:06 AM »
Do you know about Lan switches that block wing communication after few hours ?
we have several cases when after implementing the wing system and adopting the AP units,
few hours all was working well and then - connection to RFS was lost..
but in fact all the AP unit were up and working well.

It should be fairly easy to troubleshoot, can you ping the AP from the WS, can you ping the WS from the AP?

Yes
pings work
I think The switch blocks Broadcusts
When I enable IP they connect (controller host 172.16.8.5 pool 1 level 1)
Ideas ?

Are you using Layer 2 or Layer 3 for connectivity between the WS and the AP?

If you are using Layer 2 there is a broadcast at the start to find the wireless switch but after that everything is a Layer 2 packet between the wireless switch and the access port.

If you are using Layer 3 then you might want to check your DHCP pool and make sure you aren't changing the IP address of the AP or running into duplicate IP addresses.
