Do the below APs provide a web login page for customers?

WPA2/AES so you can use 802.11n.

Wait, i dont think 1141, autonomous access points are out yet ?!?



Regardless, for the staff you would want to apply whatever means you can as supported by the clients. WPA2 PSK / AES would be the best, outside of not using a radius server.


For public, open authenication with a guest appliance, since you mentioned some type of guest screen.

Hi George,


The autonomous IOS for 1140 has been out since 25 September 2009.

By default, HTTP is on while HTTPS is disabled.  You can use your web browser and enter http://IP_Address ought to work.

Sorry I meant do autonomous AP provide a web login splash page for guests? The 4400 WLC provides this feature.

You can re-direct guest to go to a specific website for splash page and/or authentication but unless you know what you are doing it just ain't easy.  Sounds like this is a job for a WLC.
