    Trapeze Wireless Controller and 3COM Access Points

    Hi All,

    We have recently installed a Trapeze wireless network. It seems to do what it says on the tin with some basic testing, but I guess the real proof will come when school starts again next week.

    Anyway, my question. As far as I can tell, the 3Com Wireless Access Points are basically relabelled Trapeze Access Points (or is it the other way round!!) Do any of you guys run 3Com APs on your Trapeze system? Seems to me that the 3Com units are a lot cheaper than the Trapeze!!

    Cheers,

    We are having Trapeze installed right now. Edge switches are all 3Com. APs are all Trapeze [I think] Install has stalled due to a mishap at the supply end. So no news for you I am afraid. But I would be interested in hearing the thoughts of others: Any know pitfalls?

    Thanks.

    Just had all the old unmanaged netgear rubbish replaced with Trapeze and the radius ringmaster software etc...

    So far so good, all the staff and student laptops that have been back have picked up the settings and work without any configuration. Will know how they cope with many users in a few days.

    Not sure about the round access points that are in the corridors though, they look like frisbys and i can imagine kids pulling them down. Anyone else have anything to protect them? A cage that does not block the signal?
