Hi Richard,


Here are comments from 2 Cisco reps on 802.11n in some threads from this past Spring. Both indicate no upgrade path for existing AP's to accomodate 802.11n (these threads both refer to the 1231 and 1242's, but I think this most certainly carries over to all the 1200 Series);

Hello all. The roadmap does not show any .n support for the 1231s. I suspect we will get a new fixed form factored 802.11n AP by July of next year.

Thanks Rob. That was helpful...the speeds of 802.11n are going to very nice to have for our docs. Just wish I wouldnt have to replace all of my old 1200 series line. Thanks again.

Hi Richard,


You are most welcome! I think we are all with you here in wishing we didn't have to spend so much for the new .11n. You never know though maybe Cisco will come up with a Trade-In path once the new Draft has been ratified. We can only hope :)


Take care,

Rob
