Configure WDS without Radius Server in Small Business and Aironet AP´s?



I have been reviewing the information posted in the web page and I´ve not found information to confirm if it´s posible to configure WDS without a Radius Server. 

I´m asking this specific case because we have an scenario in where we are going to install Cisco AP´s WAP371 and WAP4400N, we need to configure them to have roaming between them and as far as I know, these previous AP´s support WDS and Roaming, but we need only to enable the roaming functionality in these AP´s.


Thanks in advance for your answer! smiley

Hello Jorge Neyton , Yes that

Hello Jorge Neyton ,


Yes that is possible according to your scenario ,What i Believe is that your main concern is Roaming and your using Thick APs.


See the following link in order to configure Wireless Distribution System (WDS) without Radius.


The guide is for Linksys but its the same Setting for Cisco Aps as well and further more you can also configure the same using CLI.


Hope this will be helpful for you.


Excellent! :) thank you so
