Cisco AP AP541N-E-K9 with pfsense 2.0.1

  • Hello,
    I'm new in using pfsense. So…
    I have a small to medium size network with pfsense 2.0.1 running on a Intel 3Ghz CPU with 2G Ram PC and 2 lan cards(one for WAN and one for LAN)
    I have to install a Cisco AP541N-E-K9 access point to provide wireless access in a place with 50 to 150 clients.
    The setup in my theory is pretty simple: one WAN connection - PfSenseServer - CiscoAP -~50to150clients.
    From your experience is there any problem linking my pfsense server with this type of AP?I have to order this AP first so I'm asking for your help.
    Thank you.
    sorry if this kind of problem has been already discussed on this forum.

  • I've got the same access point, it's configured through DHCP. You cannot serve so many clients from one AP, especially that one. You'd need to have multiple access points to facilitate that many clients.
