quick 'N' question

i have 400 1242AG cisco access points, they can run 2.4 and/or 5ghz. im guessing due to the dual radio nature of MIMO on N that the 1242ags will not in any way support the completed 'n' draft spec.

Correct, due to the dual (or triple) radio nature of 802.11n, 1242 will not be 802.11n...

Hope it helps!

bugger ! lol

thanks again jerome.

I suspected as such as two complete separate supplies are needed in the chain.

would moving to 'n' require gigabit switches ?

many thanks

Re: quick 'N' question

Haha! 1242 is a nice AP though huhu...

And yes, moving to 802.11n would imply making sure that the infrastructure behind could follow (or "benefit"), which means Gig switches... if you can afford the E series (3560E, 3750E) are also powerful enough to PoE a 1252 (802.11n, with its multiple radios, means that a normal switch is not powerful enough to PoE a 802.11n AP)...

so if we are upgrading the lan in future as the wlan administrator i should tell our boys to get that type of switch !
