Introduction

Can a Cisco Aironet 802.11b AP support WPA2 and AES?

Resolution

Cisco Aironet 802.11b APs do not support WPA2 and AES.

WPA 2 is supported on this equipment:

  • Aironet 1130AG AP series and 1230AG AP series
  • Aironet 1100 AP series
  • Aironet 1200 AP series
  • Aironet 1300 AP series  

Note: Equip these APs with 802.11g radios and use Cisco IOS  Software Release 12.3(2)JA or later.

Note: WPA 2 and AES is also supported on Cisco Aironet 1200 series radio modules with the part numbers AIR-RM21A and AIR-RM22A. However, the Cisco Aironet 1200 radio module with the part number AIR-RM20A does not support WPA 2.

Note: Cisco Aironet 350 series products do not support WPA 2 because their radios lack AES support.

 

 

 

For more details regarding the installation of an IEEE 802.11g-compliant radio in a Cisco Aironet 1100 or 1200 Series AP, refer to Cisco Aironet 802.11g Radio Upgrade Instructions.
