Simple Setup question - new to motorola/wing
« on: July 31, 2013, 10:29:39 PM »
hello!   This forums seems to be the place to be for Wing questions...

I am a Cisco WLC/Aironet guy, but these motorolas were forced upon me.   At closer inspection they seems like they are pretty full-featured.   I am impressed.

At any rate, I have a very simple network to setup but am having some issues.

All I need is 3 VLANs and then the AP to act as a virtual controller. (the latter appears to simply be a checkbox)

SSID: Corp Native VLAN
SSID: WAREHOUSE VLAN 12
SSID: GUEST VLAN 13 (Wirelessly Isolated)

I can get the native vlan working ok, but none of the other VLANs.  I can connect to the SSID, but it never pulls an IP from DHCP (I'm using Catalyst 3560 with IP Helper setup on the vlan)  I have tried setting it static on the WLAN too and cannot ping anything.

All I did was change the eth port on the AP6532 to trunk and tell it to allow VLANs 1,12, and 13.  I also set the port it plugs into on the Catalyst 3560 to trunk and allowed all VLANs.  (For testing purposes)

Then I created the SSID's and set the VLANs appropriately within the SSID settings.

When that didnt work, I dug a little deeper and found the virtual interfaces.   Coming from a Cisco world, I know you have to create a virtual interface for each VLAN, and then you assign it to the SSID.   So, I created a virtual interface for each VLAN thinking this may be it.  I tried DHCP and static to no avail.

What the heck am I missing?   Seems like it should be very simple?

I guess this one was tougher than anticipated.   I figured this would be an easy one!

you can try to configure the virtual interface, set the IP address to "DHCP" instead of "None".
if you can get the IP addresses of virtual interface "vlan 12" and "vlan13" from the network, then we can do the further investigation.

Doesn't seem like you are doing anything overly complicated. Could you post your config here for us to take a closer look?
