we are setting up a large residence & some exterior buildings with a wireless setup and a central windows server with active directory. Normally we deal with a single wireless access point but it is clear on this setup that we will be dealing with 8-10+ access points due to the size of the building we are dealing with. This has led me to research wireless controllers. I have been browsing Cisco documentation but have a few questions I was hoping to get clarification on:
- I understand the 2106 can only support 6 access points. Seeing that we need to support 10, can I run two 2106's side by side seamlessly (want to have one SSID throughout the area)?
- Can I run this setup without WCS software?
- Can i configure this so that wireless cleints are authenticated against their active directory account via Radius?
- Will this controller/access point solution enable users to "roam" with a laptop throughout the house without major disruption? I am dealing with very non-techie users so it needs to be hassle free.
