Hi, I have a WLC 5500 with Software Version, 126.96.36.199, License Level Base, according to the "Release Notes for Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers and Lightweight Access Points for Release 188.8.131.52", says that the base license includes all features present in the wplus license. In the monitor page from the WLC the Licence Level say "base", and when I go to Managment License Level, and I set the License Level to "wplus" a messages say: Setting wplus as next level failed. Only with the version of Operating system is enough to have the functions of Wplus Licence, although the level of license showing base license, in the monitor page of the WLC.
Cisco recommends you stay away from 5.X and 6.X code. Upgrade to 7.X ... and as a bonus, OfficeExtend (useful if you have 1130 and 1140 LWAP) is now FREE!
