WAP321 & Aironet 2602e & 2504 Wireless Controller?

Hello,

I am new to Cisco networking. I am currently in an environment with no Wireless Controller and the wifi uses two Cisco WAP321's.  The company wants to expand the wireless and has bought a Cisco 2504 Wireless Controller and a Cisco Aironet 2602e Controller-based WAP.  My question is once we start using the controller can it control the formerly controller-less WAP321's or will that have to be replaced with another Cisco Aironet 2602e?  Thank you.

WLC 2504 will not support AP321s.  Talk to your authorized Cisco reseller and see if they will accept if you trade-in the AP321 for the AP 2602.

Make sure your AP 2602 have the correct regulatory domain.  If you are un-sure DO NOT open the boxes.

Another thing, for AP 2600, your 2504 should have the minimum firmware of 7.2.110.X.  IF you don't have it, then talk to the authorized Cisco reseller who sold you the controller and kindly ask them (nicely) if they could download the correct firmware for you.
