AP1041N - DHCP server

I am wondering if the Cisco Aironet AP1041N can issue IP addresses and act as a DHCP server.

Also how many IP addresses can it issue, if it can?

I am reevaluating a network for a small business, and they have a lot of concrete walls and their current home-based wireless routers don't suffice. I thought getting a standalone Aironet or two could help improve their situation.

Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions. Thanks!

Yes It Does!!! but there is a draw back.. the AP can serve the IP the clients in the smae subnet as the management!!

That is.. if the BVI interface is on VLAN XX, then the clients can get the IP only in XX VLAN subnet.. not from any other!!

Thanks. The article only mentions the 1100 series Aironet. Is it just using that AP as an example?

Ok thanks. The access point will be for a really small business so I don't think having IP clients on the same subnet will be an issue. I just wanted to replace their current 802.11g home wireless routers with a better access point that has a better range and throughput
