Can ACU and ADU be used interchangeably with Cisco Aironet Client adapters


Cisco Aironet Client Utility (ACU) and Aironet Desktop Utility (ADU) cannot be used interchangeably. Aironet Desktop Utility (ADU) is the client adapter software for Cisco Aironet CB21AG and PI21AG client adapters. Cisco Aironet CB21AG and PI21AG client adapter software is incompatible with other Cisco Aironet client adapter software. The ADU must be used with CB21AG and PI21AG cards, and the ACU must be used with all other Cisco Aironet client adapters.

For more information on how to install the client adapter software, refer to the Installing the Client Adapter Software section of Installing the Client Adapter.
