Problems connecting WEMO Belkin Wifi light switch to AP 205

I have a WEMO Belkin Light switch when I goto connect it to the AP it is coming up in the IDS as rogue and the device cannot connect to it, the security levels are set to the lowest point, any ideas?

If you are not enforcing rogues, then the issue lies between your device and the light switch as it uses a softAP connection model. 



Thanks,

I have a similar problem, in that WeMo won't work with Aruba (275/225 in my case). I created a 2.4-only SSID and ran through the configuration with that. I see it appear on Airwave as authenticated, but the unit itself blinks red on its wifi light and I cannot connect the client to it. I've tried factory reset any number of times.

 

I'll take it home (where I have another one working) and see if maybe getting a firmware update will help here.

 

Frustrating - I am in a zoo (literally) and have some IP cameras in an animal enclosure that need fairly frequent power cycling. WEMO would be perfect for this, as it can be a hassle to schedule access.

Do you see them in the AirGroup servers list?

Is that in AirWave? I'm not sure where to look for an Airgroup server list.

On the controller: show airgroup servers

Thanks. No, the Wemo is not in that list. I only have 3 listed, and they're all airprint services

Did you add a custom service for Wemo?

No custom service (I wouldn't even know how to do that).

 

My first WEMO was at home, where I have a Cisco router that puts out separate 5 and 2.4 SSIDs. It was quite straightforward and was operational in 5 minutes.

 

Trying at work, no joy. I had a few SSIDs which were all multiband. So I created a 2.4 only, just to see.

 

That SSID is ZooStaff2.4 and something I read will have me try all lower case and no period (zoostaff24) and see if that works.

Wemo uses custom services that are not built-in to AirGroup. You need to
create a custom AirGroup service with the appropriate service IDs.



You can see the service IDs by running show airgroup blocked-service-id
