1142N radio configs to support older clients

Post by Guest » Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:50 pm

Im new to Cisco dot11radio configurations. Can someone please share the commands I would use to set the 2.4 and 5Ghz radios so that older laptops can see their SSID broadcasts and connect. Thanks in advance.

When a wireless network has a mixed environment of 802.11b clients and 802.11g clients, make sure that data rates 1, 2, 5.5, and 11 Mbps are set to required (basic) and that all other data rates are set to enable. The 802.11b adapters do not recognize the 54 Mbps data rate and do not operate if data rates higher than 11Mbps are set to require on the connecting access point.

Is it true that older adaptors cannot see WPA2 enabled radios (aes-ccm)?

It depends upon the vendor.. that is.. if the adaptor supports AES-CCM encryption then we can connect with WPA-2 RegardsSurendra ===Dont forget to rate the posts which answered your question or was usefull
