WiSM & AP Newbie

Answered Question
Sep 9th, 2008

I have 2 WiSM modules, and plan to implement redundancy. I also have a bunch of AP's (1200 series). I've been reading documents on WiSM, and these are the points I got out of those documents, and I'd like to confirm:

-it appears that WiSM supports only LWAPP, is this correct?

- If yes, we have to convert our AP to LWAPP capable software, right?



I have this problem too.

Additional questions:

- Since WiSM has 2 4404 cards, its configurations should be similar to 4404, right? Any differences? Suggestions?

- What documents should be good sources for implementing this whole wireless network?

- What servers do I need? Win2K3 for DHCP & ACS? ...
