Can I enable 802.11b/g on individual radios instead of globally?

I am deploying 400 new APs. There is an existing wireless network. I need to turn up some of the radios before I turn up the rest. Right now I have 802.11b/g network turned off globally across all controllers. What I want to know is can I enable 802.11b/g radios selectively on individual APs or does it have to be done globally across the controller?

Thanks, but the Operational Status is still down. (Presumably because I have 802.11b/g disabled globally). Is there a way to override the global setting for individual APs?

Hi Friend,

The only workaround is globally enable for all APs and manually admin down for respective APs for b/g radio. I agree its a tough job when you have 400 APs but if you can run some script it will be a matter of seconds.

And if you have WCS you can use AP template for that purpose which again will take less time than manual work.
