Int dot11Radio0 Status-Reset Protocol-Down

eleguaelegua Posts: 282Member
Hi Guys,

I'm dealing with this problem, i have a second AP 1120B as a repeater, got everything configured but the dot11Radio 0 is on Reset status and protocl down, i found this on google:

CSCsi24761—The 802.11a radio in 1130 series access points sometimes remains in a reset state. 

Workaround—Reset the access point.

Is not the model i have but i did reset the AP and still the same, not to much info about this, someone had this problem before?, here is the output:

    Elegua,

    I'm not sure about your problem, but I'm interested. Figured I'd bump it back to the top to get a few more looks!

    I don't recall if it was enabled by default, however, have you tried enabling the aironet extensions? In, my Academy Lab (Lab 5.4.8 ) notebook, this is done after specifying the station-role on the repeater:

    station-role repeater
    dot11 extension aironet

    Also, the parent MAC address should be the MAC address of the non-repeater dot11radio interface (not fastethernet )
    Starting on CCNP-BCSI....

    elegua,

    If you're going to talk about a repeater, then could you give some information about the root access point?

    Thanks Serial0, i have those commands configured under Dot11Radio0 interface, i followed a guide that i found on cisco web for those AP's (1100 Series) and there said all the commands you have to used to configurate a repeater.
    interface Dot11Radio0
     no ip address
     no ip route-cache
     !
     encryption mode ciphers tkip 
     !
     ssid ITCS
     !
     parent 1 0040.96a1.2fd9 ---------------> non repeater MAC Dot11Radio0 interface
     speed basic-1.0 basic-2.0 basic-5.5 basic-11.0
     station-role repeater-------------> OK
     dot11 extension aironet----------> OK
     antenna receive right
     antenna transmit right
     antenna gain 128
     no cdp enable
     bridge-group 1
     bridge-group 1 subscriber-loop-control
     bridge-group 1 block-unknown-source
     no bridge-group 1 source-learning
     no bridge-group 1 unicast-flooding
     bridge-group 1 spanning-disabled
    

    I'll try to reset the configuration and start from cero and see what happen, any other help will be appreciate.

    Thanks. icon_wink.gif

    Hi Guys,

    Got it guys icon_cheers.gif icon_cheers.gif icon_cheers.gif , after couple of days reading and changing configurations i run a debug for the Dot11Radio0 interface and i noticed a error when the repeater AP was trying to authenticated with the root AP, something like EAP authentication missmatch so i went to google and checked the level 7 passwords in a web side that crack these passwords and bingo, one different letter (a typo) in the password on the repeater AP so i deleted it and now i got the repeater up and running, went to my room and got 100% signal when before i got no signal there, very happy because this forced me to read a lot and learn about the configuration on these wireless's AP.

    Thanks guys for all your help. icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif

    elegua,

    Welcome to the world of wireless security. In this case, security was working, therefore you were having the problem you were having with the root AP and repeater AP association problem. Did you configure a local RADIUS server on the root AP?

    Hi tech-airman,

    Yeah you're right haha, about the RADIOS server, no i don't but i 'll do it soon, i got 3 servers (2-IBM's and 1-Dell running Win-Server 2003) at home and for sure one of them will be the RADIUS server for the AP's and for my routers.
