  • Has anyone ever setup WDS on Cisco 1200 series AP's? I am trying to but have not had much luck. I am also using Juniper's Steel Belt RADIUS, w/PEAP MS-Chap v2.

    I have an AP set as the WDS "master" device and the rest setup as client's. However, on the "master" device it never shows any AP's as registering with it.

    I feel my issue may be with the user account you have to create in RADIUS for this to work.

    I have read the Cisco configs from but can't seem to find where I have missed anything.

    Any help would be appreciated.


  • Sorry this reply does not give you an answer but it will make you feel better!

    I had exacly the same problem some time ago and we had 2 Cisco WLAN engineers come in to help the solve the problem but they could not get it to work. Eventually we installed a centrally managed solution instead.

    Make sure you have the latest IOS firmware and follow the directions in the doc entitled, "Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points" located here:

    If you still have problems and this is a "network down" issue, please open a TAC case with Cisco at
