Problem with MAC auth on old IAP93

Today we decided to setup MAC auth for our Wireless network.

I enabled it on the Wireless network and created a list of MAC of devices we want to be enabled to connect.

At the beginning it seemed to work fine , but after some time someone was telling us that he was not able to connect to the WiFi network even the MAC was properly configured.

We have mixed hardware some IAP105 , IAP103 and two IAP93.

I did some tests and i noted that in the zones covered by IAP93 access point i cannot connect , when in other zones covered by IAP105 or IAP103 i can connect without any problem.

I spent a lot of time to figure why this is happening , any advice ?

Re: Problem with MAC auth on old IAP93

Please see the release notes for Instant  What is not said here is that the AP93 also cannot be used for mac authentication, because it does not have enough memory.
