AP541n with 2504 controller how to

     is there a step by step guide on how to manage AP541n with a 2504 controller?

I have done the initial config on the 2504 but somehow the AP does not join and i can not find what would be a correct setting for the AP. How does that work anyway. In all documentation i found the AP somehow finds the controller, but in my case it does not.

Re: AP541n with 2504 controller how to

Hello Frank,

I recently retired a number of 541's because they do not support an enterprise wireless configuration like you are attempting.  Between themselves they can form a cluster but they are not able to join a with a controller.

You will need new access points to use with your WLC.

AP540 are classified as "Small Business" products and solutions and they are not compatible with Enterprise products like the 2500, 5508 and WiSM2.
