  • ShoreTel Ascom wireless phones not talk'n to ShoreTel, 4 SOME Cisco WAP 1242G

    We recently installed ShoreTel VoIP and the Ascom wireless phones work fine on selected Cisco WAP 1242G. But on others that are configured exactly the same:
    - Symptom 1 - they only obtain an IP, but never actually talk to ShoreTel.
    - Symptom 2 - moving from one WAP signal to another it will not resync to new WAP and obtain a new IP.
    - Symptom 3 - If it is on the same Subnet (not requiring new IP) then it 'may' migrate and use 2nd WAP.

    The WAP 1242G is connected to Cisco 3560, then to 3750 then to 6509 then down to 3750 then ShoreTel. I can have 2 WAP just feet apart on the same 3750 and the 2nd one does not work. It says "No Access" but does obtain a valid IP. Then on other WAP it will only obtain an IP if power reset, then it will get the IP and be able to talk.

    I have copied 99.9% of each config across all 1242, 3560 and 3750; still something seems to be different.

    Don't think it could be IP/DHCP related.
    - 10.8.8.x works on 2 of 3 WAP
    - 10.9.8.x works on 1 of 3 WAP
    - 10.10.8.x works on 1 of 2 WAP
    - 10.11.8.x works on 2 of 2 WAP
    - 10.12.8.x still to be fully configured (so this may be good test environment)

    - Cisco WAP AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 - in autonomous mode
    C1240-K9W7-M, Version 12.4(10b)JDA,
    - Cisco 3750 - IPSERVICESK9-M, Version 12.2(50)SE2
    - Cisco 3560 - IPSERVICESK9-M, Version 12.2(50)SE
    - Ascom Wireless handset

    - Always get IP, some 'may' require power cycle to obtain.
    - Symptom 1 - says "No Access" but does show correct IP
    - Symptom 2 - shows full signal but does not migrate to new WAP for new IP
    ..does not ping because it has invalid IP from previous WAP
    - Display shows 100% (3 bar) signal
    - Active phones DO ping successfully
    - Transition from one WAP to another will not obtain new IP/connection
    ..power cycle will obtain new IP

    Ideas I have not completely tested yet:
    - See if they respond to PING when "No Access" with correct IP
    - See if ShoreTel sees "No Access" phones

    - Are there key settings needed for 3560/3750
    - Are there key settings for WAP 1242

    Cisco WAP 1242G connected to 3560 not allowing Ascom Wireless phones to connect.

    Suspect this may be a vlan or trunk issue on the 3560 or WAP 1242AG. Not sure why sometimes they get an IP but still will not connect to ShoreTel switch and send traffic.
