Cisco AP compatibility with other vendor APs

Unanswered Question

We are about to migrate a site running Symbol AP4131 managed by a Symbol WS5000 to an all Cisco 1242 AP.

I am trying to verify the APs will work together as we do the migration. Currently the Symbols are running a static WEP key. If I configure the Cisco to use the same WEP key will the end user have any issues roaming from the Cisco AP to the Symbol AP?

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

To be honest you very well may run into issues with multi vendor AP's. I don't know that there is any way to know for sure ahead of time whether or not you'll run into issues.

Your best bet may be to setup a lab environment and testing roaming to see if you have any drop offs etc.
