1200AP Upgrade to 802.11g question....

1. What is involved with an upgrade from 802.11b to 802.11g? Is this simply an IOS upgrade? The client would like 802.11g, but isn’t sure if they can simply upgrade, or if they should wait til 802.11g comes out.

2. Would it be possible to segregate services by bandwidth at an access point? In other words….. if I give some people 802.11a cards and some 802.11b cards, I want to give them different areas of access according to what card they have.

Re: 1200AP Upgrade to 802.11g question....

Well I can almost answer question 1...

It is a radio upgrade (hopefully out soon) not an IOS upgrade.

Question 2 I have no answer for. This is just a guess but on the AP setup you can have policies setup on the interface. On my 1220 (no "A" radio), the two interfaces that show up are the "b" radio and the ethernet port. I would guess that with both the "b" and "a" radios installed that there would be three interfaces (a,b,and ethernet) that you could configure policies on....Maybe someone with both radios can answer that question for us.

Thanks

To go to 802.11g from 802.11b will require a radio module upgrade for the AP1100 or a new radio module for the AP1200. I put this question to our account manager a couple of days ago and was told that it should be available by the end of November but definitely within Q4.

I am not sure about the second question but I would guess at using a VLAN for each client type and ACLs to define services available to each.

In response to question number 2:

2. Would it be possible to segregate services by bandwidth at an access point? In other words….. if I give some people 802.11a cards and some 802.11b cards, I want to give them different areas of access according to what card they have.

Yes. They are called Bandwidth Control Units. I am sure you can implement QOS on the AP itself, but I don't know to what extent you can throttle per user. Refer to the link below for information regarding the previous mentioned BCU!
