IAP275 is now avialable, what about Mesh , is this working now finally ?
Regarding IAP275 and PPPOE uplink , i want to create a 2x IAP275 cluster where one of those IAP275 is the uplink with connected PPPOE modem , the other one is added via Mesh . I checked the PPPOE guide and it seems the PPPOE is priorized and if not available it tries getting dhcp ip adress. while the connected DSL modem is only offering PPPOE dialup , how the InstantAP reacts when the PPPOE link is temporary not available, does it chooses piper adress , or does it periodically rebooting ,
im asking cause the cluster is far away and if pppoe is not available temporary im lost if the IAP doesnt reboot periodacally to dialup again if it stays on dhcp-piper adress. anyone tested this setup once ?

Aruba does its best to state what features are available at launch. In the 275s case (plus other 802.11ac APs) mesh was not available. As such, it is stated in the products Technical Sepcifications sheet that Mesh would be available at a later date.

It's rediculous to release a product of that class with out mesh.
It was a rush to market and a bad business decsion.

I don't beleive the orginal specifications stated that meshing was not available! I read it in the firmware notes (when i was trying to mesh two IAP-224's). There was nothing on the Aruaba page which made it CLEAR meshing was not supported. It may have been documented but not even our supplier was aware of the limitation untill i called them!
Here is what the spec documents state:
-Wireless mesh connections are convenient where
Ethernet drops are not available.
*Available Q3 2014
Also why would you realease a product such as the 274 without mesh support which is more or less designed for backhaul and access. Does not make sense Aruba! I currently have two 274's and another two 224's sitting on my desk which are currently giant paperweights :(

The 275 is an excellent solution for two of our AP needs - simplifying cabling, mounting and AP-temperature control in our freezers.
We're quite happy they "rushed to market"
I do agree that the meshing issue could have been more clearly communicated, but am stil lhappy to have the AP earlier rather than having to wait for all features to be baked in.
