Hi
I got short time ago an used NXC2500 Wireless LAN Controller for my WAC AP. Everything working beside some IoT Device (Wifi USB Switch) who have a Crappy Antenna and lose often the Wifi Connection. So I thought why not buy some Cheap used Zyxel AP who work with the NXC2500 to connect all the 2,4 Ghz Device in my Network rack?!
How about the NWA5121-NI?
Thanks

    If the IoT devices support 802.11ac, it's quite tough.

    If it supports WiFi5, and it's cheap, it's not maneageble.

    If it's cheap and maneagable, it's not WiFi5

    If it's cheap, WiFi5 and maneagable… it's not an Zyxel AP. Or it's out of support (like NWA -1123 AC v2, which is not maneagable via NXC2500 but it's cheap, Nebula capable and out of support.)

    So thanks to every one I got from Ebay an used Accesspoint for an good Price.
    I really just need them to turn my USB Wifi think on and off. I will even reduce the power to the lowest.
