Using a RAP on a hotspot



I have a customer who wants to connect some RAPs he purchased to a MyFi hotspot instead of a traditional wired internet connection. I have not done this but am told it's possible. Has anyone done this or have any recommendations on which hotspots seem to work best with the RAP in this setup?

Re: Using a RAP on a hotspot

Depending on the RAP model, you may be able to utilize WiFi as your uplink rather than a wired interface.... but this requires a RAP in Instant mode (a true RAP; 3, 109, or 155).


Review the following from the Instant User Guide:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_41_WebHelp/InstantWebHelp.htm#UG_files/Uplink_conf/ConfigureWiFIUL.htm

Re: Using a RAP on a hotspot



I was able to get this working with no issues today. The customer purchased a Verizon ULM290 (pantech) USB hotspot. I configured the RAP3 by checking the USB settings box and setting the devce type to pantech ULM290. Everything else was left at the default setting.
