cisco AIR-AP1230B-E-K9 - WPA2 capable???

Unanswered Question
Aug 12th, 2009

Hi there,

I would like to implement WPA2 in my Cisco APs 1200 series but it seems the AP is not WPA2 capable. Is there a way to upgrade my AIR-AP1230B-E-K9 to be able to add this feature or I will have to buy a new one?

And I also need to do the same with my cisco AIR-AP1231G-E-K9 which I suppose is the same as the other.

Thanks for helping me out

Hi Luis,

The 1230B would require a Radio upgrade to support WPA2.

So you would need to install the Radio Upgrade kit to install the (AIR-MP21G-A-K9).

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point Radio Upgrade Instructions

Cisco Aironet 802.11G 1100 and 1200 Series Access Point Upgrade Kit

I'm not 100% sure that these kits are still available (but I think they are :)

As nicely shown here :)

Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA 2) Configuration Example

Hope this helps!

Thanks a lot Rob,
