Interested to find out what:
1) LWAP adapter
2) Mounting hardware/bracket(s)
were used for any LWAP 1142n deployments above a suspended ceiling. Our installation will not work with the included t-rail mounting hardware and are looking for alternative mounting options above a suspended ceiling. Cisco hardware guide mentions an optional adapter to be used with a Erico Caddy 512A t-bar adapter. Has anyone had experience with this option?
I've used the Erico 512A bracket in a brand new office we built. For aesthetics, they didn't want the APs visible. Anyhow, they aren't as slick as the T-bar hangers that are included with the APs, but they do the job. Make sure you get the 512A which has an 8" height that you can adjust so the AP isn't hitting the top of the ceiling tile.
Oberon Wireless also makes very nice enclosers for different AP models if you are wanting something a little nicer and easier to access with a lock and key.
