Cisco Aironet AP as Edge Device

Hi everyone,

We are in the process of deploying external WiFi at our company.  Basically, this will be provided through a completely segregated Internet line and we will not be using any of our internal infrastructure for routing etc.  We're considering using single Cisco Aironet APs going directly into the cable modem at each office.

I have limited experience with Cisco Aironets, so based on your experiences, do the Aironet APs have NAT, DHCP, DNS, and basic static routing capabilities? 

According to the following link, routing and NAT are not supported on 1200 APs, but what about the newer models?

You need a router as the APs don't perform NAT. If you connect the AP to a router, then your setup would work.

AP > router > modem
