I have seen that using LWAPP and a WLC, Guest WLans can be authenticated via a web page.

Is this possible on an Autonomous 1130 AP ?

Or is that only a functionality of the Controller ?

It's possible, just not natively. You would need to use a device like the BBSM, or possibly the NAC to do it.

As the other user said, this web authorization isn't native to the access point. It is a web authorization portal that is on the WLC.

With that said, any web authorization portal on your network could be used. I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you are looking to do this on a handful of devices, you might go with something like NoCat ( I haven't actually used it but I think it is just an entry level (free?) portal.

I'm sure there are many of product out there, and cisco probably has thier fair share...

Note: in this case, it would most likely be used to authorize anyone to get connected to the LAN (or Internet), it probably wouldn't be used to authorize the actual Wireless Connection, just authorize the ability to get off the VLAN (like to the Internet)
