Second AP From Other Brand

  • 1.  Second AP From Other Brand

    Hi, 

    I just bought AP11 a couple weeks ago. I also have existing WiFi Router from the ISP. My questions are : 
    1. Is it okay if I add my second access point from another brand besides Aruba Instant On ? 
    2. Will the Aruba Instant On AP11 detect it as a rogue device ? 
    3. Does Aruba Instant On AP11 has IDS / IPS feature just like Aruba Instant APs for Enterprise ? 
    4. Is it okay If I add my second access point from the same brand but with different kind of AP, let's say for example AP12 ? Will it be detected as rogue device also ? 

    Thanks.

    When adding another AP from a different manufacture a client will have to reauthenticate between the AP11 and the other manufacture. This will cause issues for the clients and not be ideal. There are no IDS/ IPS for rouge AP for Instant On AP's. You can mix and match Instant On AP's and they will all work together.

    Hi Greg. 

    Thanks for your response. 

    What do you mean reauthenticate ? Can you explain further ?

    When going between vendor AP's you would release your IP address and request a new one and verify your PSK if you are using one. Using a single vendor solution this would not be the case.
