Home Wireless Wireless Configuration Cisco Wireless 521 Access Point configuration for open event

The Cisco 521 Wireless Express Access Point is single-band 802.11g access points equipped with integrated antennas. These access points are ideal for delivering Cisco Wireless Access Point AP521 logostandards-based security and high-performance wireless connectivity for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with carpeted offices and similar environments.
At my church, Cisco 521 Wireless Express Access Point and Cisco 526 Wireless Express Mobility Controllers were installed since Sprint 2008. It is very stable and well handled all the traffic thru out the whole campus and buildings. End of 2008, we had an event to support seniors for renewal Medicare-D program. Church Wireless network was main interface to all volunteer's notebooks and laptops. About 40 wireless connections were linked to
one of Cisco 521 Wireless Access point where is closest.

 

 

Traffic wasn't that heavy, but we were a bit worried about session management and performance. Well, it was just worthless concerns. Cisco 521 AP and Cisco 526 WLC completed our mission. While we were supporting the event, we setup extra Access Point for emergency and traffic load-sharing purpose. We didn't use it, but backup plan is always needed.

Below access point's configuration is quite simple;
no authentication, running by DHCP and plug & play. See below configuration.
