AP11D WAN Throughput

I’m having trouble finding specs on the WAN throughput of the AP11D when used as Routing device. Any idea what kind of ISP link it can handle? I would assume it is only intended for a Small Office Cable Modem / DSL link.

Re: AP11D WAN Throughput

@twhiteOXEN On AP as a Router, you should be directly connected to an ISP modem, which in most countries has a maximum throughput that is typically much less than what our AP product line is capable of delivering (E0 - gigabit ethernet). Therefore, in practice, the performance hit of being a Router should not have much of an impact on the overall user experience.

Re: AP11D WAN Throughput

Thanks @GThiesen. Yes that is the use case I'm wanting to prep for. For example most of our clients are using between a 200Mbps to 600Mbps connection. In a typical small office setting with 20 or fewer connected clients would the AP11D be able to handle a WAN 600Mbps connection? There would likely be an additional AP12 or AP15 connected downstream of the AP11D and a 1930 or 2530 switch for wired connections but again not more than 20 total client devices.

Re: AP11D WAN Throughput

@twhiteOXEN The AP11D again should handle this based on the information you have provided.

Here is a deployment guide for future reference.

Re: AP11D WAN Throughput

Thanks for the deployment guide. If I understand it right your ISP must provide an IP WAN address. There's no way to set a static IP for WAN on AP11D? So this isn't the solution for SOHO for static IP.
