Apple Airport Express Creates a Loop in the network

Dear All,

We had an issue with Apple Airport Express creates a loop when ethernet is plugged in and wireless network is also present. All the users  traffic who are connected wirelessly has been routed to airport express.


Does Aruba AP has any feature to prevent other rouge access point from broadcasting DHCP or allow to divert traffic?


Thank you in advance.

Re: Apple Airport Express Creates a Loop in the network

Aruba has features to prevent a rogue wireless device from plugging into the network.  If the Aruba controller is not in the path of that device, that device can create a loop and there is nothing anyone can do about it.  You probably need to stop allowing the device to connect wirelessly in the first place...
