Unanswered Question
Apr 23rd, 2009

Hi all.

LWAPP AP works with Autonomous AP in repeater mode?

need something like this:

WLC-->LWAPP - - - IOS AP(Repeater mode) - - IOS AP(Repeater mode)

is it possible?

I have this problem too.

No, you cannot use repeaters under LWAPP. That's what Mesh is for.

The problem you will have is that you are trying to go from repeater to repeater.... which will really be slow and cause more issues than you think. Like all the other post show, you should try to set the ap's up as mesh ap's as long as you can use the ap's you have for mesh. I have tried using a reapeater just for kicks (at home).... too slow and not worth it.
