AIR-CT2504-5-K9 Expansion

Hello,

I would like advised over this matter.

I have a WC 2504 with 3 AIR-LAP1141N-A-K9 APs. The network clients have increased by 90 wireless devices, and we are experiencing a noticeable drop in speed a peak time when all devices are connected. We are planing to add another AP. So far, we are using a Dual VPN Router to share internet network load at 100mbps/25mbps and 15mbps/5mbps.

Do we have to use the same AP model (in this case AIR-LAP1141) or can we use another AP model to balance the network load?.

Thank you very much for sharing your experience.

Respectfully.

Hi Rudy,

You do not want to go with same AP model.

I prefer you go ahead with a dual band (1600/2600/3600) AP model rather single band like you have at the moment.

Refer this for the WLC software compatibility with these AP models
