Wireless over WAN links

Unanswered Question
Feb 23rd, 2007

I am looking for information or a doc link for configuring the Controller to manage APs over T1 links. I see the Wireless LAN controller can use Hybrid REAP in version for 4.0. My controller is running 3.2 and was installed by a consultant. I would like do this without an upgrade because the project was implemented with the controller managing APs on the LAN and WAN as a requirement, but I can't find any info to configure the WAN portion. Thanks.

I have this problem too.

I believe if it is running on L3 LWAPP (and the WLC supports), then you can use WAN for WLAN. However, it may be an impact to the WAN bandwidth to have remote LWAPP AP. I suggest to install a WLC module at the router to act as a local WLC. Or use anonymous (standalone) mode for the remote site if there are only a few APs there.

Hope this helps.
