Wireless Access Points

RTmarcRTmarc Member Posts: 1,082 ■■■□□□□□□□
We're looking at putting in a new wireless access point here at our corporate office and I was wondering what some of you are using. I'm looking at Cisco Aironet 1131AG. Anyone worked with one of these? How well do they integrate into a LAN that doesn't use much Cisco equipment (other than routers).

    I just installed 4 aironet 1130AG WAP's and they worked really well. The only problem I have had with some of those is the POE. Other than that no problems. Of course we have a Cisco Wireless Lan controller that automatically configures the WAP when it is plugged into the LAN.

    It doesn't need a Cisco backbone to rely on, any normal ethernet switch should be fine.
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Thanks for the input. Another question, how well do they talk to one another when not managed by the LAN Controller?

    I'll ask these questions......

    802.1x authentication?

    WPA?

    What type(s) of antennas are you requiring?




    Because there are lower cost AP's that work just as well.
