Aironet 1041 Standalone 5Ghz Band

Gary Roche
Level 1
Level 1

Hi,

I'm doing a basic install of X8 1041's.

All devices are to be connecting on the 5Ghz band.

The spec of the 1041 states its supports 802.11 a/b/g/n on 2.4Ghz + 5Ghz band.

When configuring the 1041 I only see options relating to the 2.4Ghz band, I see nothing for 5Ghz.

Am I missing something really simple here, how do enable the 5Ghz band?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

G

Check the model you got to see if maybe it a 2.4ghz only. You can also do a show ver to check.

You can reference this data sheet for the part number

That's incorrect.  1041 only has one radio.  And it's the 802.11b only.  1042 is the model with both 802.11a and 802.11b radio.

Yeah... I didn't know if it was a fat finger:)

D@mn! Got the part numbers wrong.

Stupid mistake I made.

Anyway, many thanks Scott.

And I suppose just to be clear for anyone else its is NOT just 802.11b as above.

The 1041's are 802.11g/n, which I have found excellent on a 802.11n 2.4Ghz on previous installs.

The 1042's are 802.11a/g/n and cost considerably more for the priviledge.
