Question

Apple IOS with Band Steering load groups


Userlevel 5
We recently upgraded our v2110 controller to the new Extreme V9.01.
Since the upgrade no IOS version 7 devices could connect.
We have a load group configured with band steering enbaled.
In the Ap logs I can see that the device tries to connect to the 2.4ghz radio but then get rejected so that it could move to the 5ghz radio.

The IOS devices can connect only when I disable band steering.
All other devices/Operating systems (Andriod and Windows) works fine with band steering enabled.

Any ideas?

Regards

Why not just disable band steering entirely? iOS is pretty good about using 5GHz where available. We are 1:1 iPads and 75-80% of all devices are on 5GHz. Some classrooms have APs where every iPad is on 5GHz. iOS is very particular about getting rejected, if you do it too often it'll just stop connecting to that SSID.

Andre,

Can you open a ticket with the GTAC so we can try and replicate this issue? If you log in to the Extranet you can open a ticket on line. https://extranet.enterasys.com/Pages/default.aspx

Make sure you generate a tech support file from the controller on "logs" so we can review the configuration you currently have setup and attach it to the case ticket.

Thanks,

Doug
