2504 WLC AP Count Query


Hi All,


I found a Cisco 2504 wireless lan controller at one of our sites and have powered it up and found that its only licensed for 10 access points (bit of a bummer).


When ive gone into the licenses section of the WLC i can see the attached


From this I can see there is also a license on there for 5 APs, as well as the one for 10.


Am I able to combine the 5 and 10 to make 15? If so, how would I do this?


We are planning to donate this to a local charity who have 12 Cisco standalone AP's at the moment and I would convert them to lightweight and connect them to this controller. But with it seemingly being stuck on either 5 or 10, doesn't seem likely they would be able to benefit from it.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not going to work. 

The WLC is only licensed for 10 APs and the window has closed to buy more licenses because the WLC has gone past EoS.
