When a RAP2 or RAP5 has already been provisioned,when rebooted, and until it contacts the controller it will give out 192.168.11.x addresses to devices on the second port and send that traffic out to the internet on the broadband connection. This allows wired clients to still be able to communicate with the internet, when the AP cannot contact the controller. This would be useful if you are at a hotel and you needed to pay for the portal for internet; you could pay using the wired port, and then the AP would be able to contact the controller and the second port will get it's permanent configuration. You could also still use the internet if the controller at the headend is down.
In the next version of ArubaOS, this functionality is optional and can be shut off.
