Re: 1530 Mesh network no WLAN

The vWLC only supports FlexConnect mode Access Point. Per the doc:

Outdoor Mesh Access Points (an Outdoor AP with FlexConnect mode will work)

Note: Outdoor APs such as AP1552 are supported in FlexConnect mode if the APs are not used in a mesh deployment.

Re: 1530 Mesh network no WLAN

Thanks,

Now I understand why there was no WLAN in local mode too.

Re: 1530 Mesh network no WLAN

With the vWLC, you will not be able to use MESH. The 1532's can be configured for FlexConnect, but all of them need to be connected to a switch and have connectivity back to the vWLC.

Here is a good quick guide:
