I am running WLSE 2.11. I just installed a 12.42ag series WAP as a WDS device, assuming it would work without double checking. RRRRrrr, I never do that, but lately I've had more work then I can deal with. We've been using the 1231. Anyways, when I perform a discovery, WLSE reports the 1242ag series WAP as an unsupported device. Can I do anything about this or do I have to go back to the 1231?
Check the Download | Wireless page. Cisco "occasionally" comes out with device support updates that may include your 1242.
If that's the case, that'll save you from having to do a firmware update/replacement on the WLSE, which I believe would be your only other option.
