Other than not being able to get 802.11ac speeds are there any issues in plugging an autonomous 3702i into a FastEthernet port and not a GigEthernet port? A new switch is coming soon but the AP will be there first.
You want to enable 802.11ac wave 1 and connect is to a FastEthernet port?
I mean, 802.11ac wave 1 is 1.3 Gbps. Sticking it into a FastEthernet port assures you won't get beyond 100 Mbps. If you really, really want 802.11ac wave 1 speed, the AP needs to be connected to a 3650 or 3850 or a 4500R+E with Sup8E installed. Otherwise, the "highest" speedtest.net you'll probably get is 1 Gbps (if your AP is connected to a 1 Gbps port with 1- or 10 Gbps uplink).
Thanks to you both. The speed restriction is what I expected. The entire location is due for an AP and switch upgrade. All APs will be the 3702i but it is a few months down the road. The AP for part of the building is needed now and I didn't want to get something other than the model that was coming.
Will I need to buy new switches to support 802.11ac?
802.11ac APs will perform very well when plugged into gigabit ports that support POE+ (802.11at). While the standard supports data rates up to almost 7 gigabits per second (gbps), those rates will not be supported in early products. Early 802.11ac APs are likely to only support up to 3 streams and 80 MHz channels. That puts theoretical radio throughput around 1.3 gbps. Actually throughput will be lower and adequately served by agigabit port. 802.11ac APs are likely to require POE+ (AT) power due to increased power draws of the faster CPUs and radios.Additionally,even if the AP infrastructure is upgraded, it will take time for the client population to migrate to 802.11ac and for the traffic density to increase. While the APs have to be upgraded to support the first 11ac connection, the controllers and switch upgrades can coincide with the client distribution switch to 802.11ac
