Hi Lars,

The recommendation for site surveys would dictate that you try to use the exact AP/Antenna combination for both the survey and deployment. You should at minimum look at the results in a few of the areas done in the site survey when using the 1242 to measure and compare expectations.

The 526 Express Controller can only manage Cisco 521 Wireless Express Access Points;

You would need the WLC 2106 which I know you are familiar with;

Hope this helps!
