Re: LWAP and LAP

Hi Mansoor,

These two acronyms are similar, one is short for the Lightweight Protocol and one for the Lightweight AP's themselves;

Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP).

Lightweight Access Point (LAP)

Understanding the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP)

Hope this helps!

Re: LWAP and LAP

Hi Rob,

I got the point, one is Light weight AP and other is the Light weight Access Point protocol that runs on LAP.

but when I configure 1130 on cisco configurator, for AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9 the decription comes as "802.11ag LWAPP AP Integrated Antennas FCC Cnfg" which shows that the said AP supports LWAPP. At the same time when I configure AIR-LAP1131G-A-K9 it only says " 802.11g Integrated Unified AP; Int Antennas; FCC Cnfg". Does it mean that the second AP does not support LWAPP

cheers

Re: LWAP and LAP

Hi Mansoor,

They both support LWAPP :) For some reason the description is slightly different (probably different vintages of AP's or the fact that one is A/b/g and the other is just b/g) but the word "Unified" in this description;

802.11g Integrated "Unified" AP; Int Antennas; FCC Cnfg

Does stand for LWAPP support.

Hope this helps!

Rob
