AP 1100-1200 series support WPAv2

Hi all

we have APs in the 1100-1200 series with 1 radio

Currently none of them support WPAv2

Checking the internet I found this info on a forum

The 1230B would require a Radio upgrade to support WPA2.

So you would need to install the Radio Upgrade kit to install the (AIR-MP21G-A-K9).

Cisco Aironet 802.11G 1100 and 1200 Series Access Point Upgrade Kit

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5678/ps430/product_data_sheet0900aecd801b9233.html

I don't understand this kits, do you need to replace the radio card physically to have WPAv2?

I was hoping it was enough to just upgrade to latest IOS 12.3(8)JED1

Currently they are running 12.3(8)JED but it is already a year old

Thank you for any help

Regards

Bart

Bart,

The reason is because 802.11b clients (and) access points cant crunch AES/CCMP encryption which is part of WPA2. Thus why you need to upgrade ...

Yes, the physical radio in the AP needs to be upgraded.
