I'm in the market for an IAP-135 and have seen many listings on ebay and Amazon, but of the photos I see (and the two APs that I've actually received) that are listed as IAP-135, they all bear model numbers showing AP-135. I would think that the model number sticker would say IAP-135 as opposed to AP-135 - am I correct? Or is it just a blanket model number designation and it depends on the hardware/firmware inside?

An IAP looks identical to a regular AP in every way except for one small sticker on the back of the AP.
Here is a photo of the back of an IAP-105-US. You can see the sticker with the bar code indicating that this is an IAP. It will always be "IAP - <model> - <country code>"

Thanks -- that's what i thought. Seems too many people are selling these things that have no idea what they have. Below are the two that I purchased. The small sticker says AP-135, so it seems that's exactly what I have.
Edit: pardon the poor termination on the ethernet cable in port 0 of the second photo -- it was just one I grabbed out of a box to see if this AP would even boot up while I was waiting for a reply. I certainly am not the one who terminated it :smileyhappy:

There really is no best place to find one. I eventually gave up on finding a used IAP on eBay as every one listed turned out to be an AP version. I finally found a good price on a new one, albeit in the $750 range. If you do find one (new or used) at a good price, insist the seller send you a photo of the rear and compare it to the one above to make sure it has the IAP-135-US sticker.
