Mac-Authen in 1141 AP not working with WPA!

Postby Guest » Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:10 pm

I want to have my stand-alone 1141 to do Mac-Authentication locally and have WPA running to let the AP run in 11n mode but it is not running. I have tried having an No Encr and Mac-Authentication and it works.

 

I have read an article that WPA and Mac-Authentication don work together. Is it right?

Please enlighten me on this.

Hi,

 

indeed the simplest is to have WPA and mac filters. Mac authentication allows to authenticate mac addresses against radius. Mac filters is an access list with mac addresses stored on the AP itself.

 

ap(config)#dot11 association mac-list ?
  <700-799>  Ethernet address access list

 

You can then configure an ACL (with number between 700 and 799) to go with that.

Nicolas

MAC Filters, will this not affect APs performance? coz as per understanding, each packet will be inspected and be compared to the access-list made.

No.

Note that its not an access list applied on the radio interface. Its a dot11 association maclist as the command says. So it filters association requests only. So it is only applied to 802.11 association request frames.
