Title: DWL-3200APs and DES-1228P
Post by: DLinkPosterChild on February 24, 2008, 11:15:05 AM
I am using DWL-3200APs with the DES-1228P.  The PoE works great, and overall it is a good package.  Is there any chance that the 3200s can/will work with the AP manager software that comes with the 1228?  They have their own [quite outdated] software, but it would be nice to manage everything together...

At this point, no, there is no such plans.

The 1228P works with the DWL-3140AP, which is a nice little smoke detector type AP.  It's lower power than the 3200AP, but that's offset by the fact that you can manage up to 24 of them from the switch.

If you haven't seen it yet, we've released a new version of the AP Manager software, called (somewhat unoriginal, we know...) "AP Manager II"

It can be downloaded here:  ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwl3200AP_revB/Apps/dwl3200_APmanagerII_110.zip

Also, there is some software available from third party vendors that I've found useful.  ManageEngine makes a neat product called "WiFi Manager," and it can be downloaded for demo here:  http://manageengine.adventnet.com/products/wifi-manager/index.html

It's not free, but it's pretty nice.  I have a customer managing 300 of the DWL-3200AP's using that software successfully.

Hope that helps somewhat!
