LAP1142 with different regulatory domains on each wireless
Hi, I wonder if anyone has come across this before:
We've seen an AIR-LAP1142-E-K9 wireless access point - one of a batch on the pre-used market although I understand that they have been simply removed from the original user - where the regulatory domain on each of the radios is different.
The 2.4GHz radio is 802.11bg:-E and the 5GHz radio is 802.11a:-A (as reported by the controller).
This is really strange as the AP shows itself to be the Product/Model Number : AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9
And the radio circuit board contains the circuitry for both radios so it's not that the wrong board has been installed for the A radio.
I don't know the software version that is running on the controller - and I've tried a bug search but that hasn't turned up anything useful (yet).
Has anyone here seen anything like this or offer any explanation?
I know it is not right. I don't have the AP in front of me, but the information given to me says that the AP reports that it is built for -E- however on the WLC it reports -E on the one radio and -A on the other - see the attachment.
why you have an AP with different radios, I don't know, because the sticker is what comes from the factory and is suppose to have those radios for that regulatory domain. Maybe someone swapped the radios:)
That's what I thought, Scott, but I've had one of these to pieces and both radios are driven from the one circuit board...
I did wonder if there was a bug in the firmware level on the WLC but I don't have access to it to check. Especially since others from the same batch are reported to have worked without problems - we ourselves have had some - and they are reported to have worked fine in their original installation (these are pre-owned units).
Oh well, I guess this will remain a mystery. Thanks to everyone who replied.

The script should be completely self explanatory.
