Covert AP-135 to RAP

Hi all, I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction of documentation that shows how to convert an AP-135 from an AP to a Remote AP. 


We have a site that has poor wireless coverage, and thought a good way to solve it for them is to covert the 135 in to a remote ap if possible (whitepapers mentions it). We have other RAP-3WNPs, but they are currently deployed elsewhere.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In short......


Assuming you already have your RAP groups and profiles set.


  1. Add the MAC to your RAP whitelist and choose the appropriate AP Group
  2. Provision the AP-135 like you normally would
  3. Select Remote AP=Yes
  4. Remote AP Authentication Method=Certificate
  5. Master Discovery, Master Controller IP/DNS Name=your RAP provisioning IP/Name
  6. Apply Reboot
