AP1242 and AP1602 roaming

Hello,

We have network built on autonomous AP1242s. Now we heve to enhance wireless network to next buildings. The wireless clients run a lot between APs, so there is a lots of roaming. If I install AP1602 and configure them same way as AP1242 (4 SSIDs - some working on 2,4GHz and some on 5GHz - and 4 VLANs) would there be any problems? Especially with roaming? And maybe there are some other elements where those two types of APs wouldn't cooperate each other?

Re: AP1242 and AP1602 roaming

There shouldn't be if the 1602's are also autonomous. I would disable 802.11n on the new AP's until you are able to replace all the 1242's.

Clients that support 802.11n will try to stick to 802.11n access points so roaming will be an issue and that's why you would need to disable 802.11n.
