Can I configure the 1200 for WPA2?

Re: Aironet 1200

Hi Mario,

The 1200 series AP's do support WPA2. Have a look at the following;

The Cisco Aironet 1200AG Series has achieved National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS 140-2 level 2 validation and is in process for Common Criteria validation under the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) program. The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), WPA, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the Wi-Fi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based wireless LAN security. These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between Wi-Fi-certified wireless LAN devices from different manufacturers.

From this doc;

Q. What Cisco Aironet access points support WPA2 and AES?

A. The following Cisco Aironet autonomous and lightweight access points support WPA2 and AES: Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series, 1230AG Series, 1130AG Series and 1000 Series access points. Cisco Aironet 1100 Series, 1200 Series and 1300 Series 802.11g radios support WPA2 with a Cisco IOS Software upgrade via Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(2)JA or later.

Hope this helps!
