Dear all,

I have an existing setup with 5 NWA-3560-N access point, can I add and manage a NWA50AX from the same system?

Or do I end up with 2 independent configurations?

Thanks for your insights here..

Jeroen

    Hi @Jeroen2,

    Since NWA3560-N is an old model, the web GUI and wireless functions have some differences from the NWA50AX. May I know what you mean by the same system? Were you using a controller for configuration?

    Thanks for your response.

    Currently I am using a "Master" NWA3560-N to configure 5 other access points, I would like to replace one or two of the older accesspoints with a newer NWA50AX.

    Ideally I would like to keep the old master to configure / deploy my configuration to 1 or 2 new accesspoints.

    So can a NWA3560-N configure the newer devices as well? To avoid changing all the accesspoints at the same time. Hope it is clear.

    Hi @Jeroen2,

    Thanks for the information. Since the NWA3560-N uses an old system, it cannot control new access points like NWA50AX. Additionally, NWA50AX only has standalone mode and cloud management mode. So, you need to configure NWA50AX independently.
