Will a Cisco AIR-BR350-A-K9 work in the uk?

Hi,

For reasons known only to themselves, Cisco decided to make the BR350-E-K9 wirless bridge an end of life product. As a result you cant find a replacement for love of money. But im wondering if you can use the American A-K9 version instead. As far as I can see the only difference is that the A version's transmit power can go up to 100mw whilst the available channels have been reduce to 11 from the european 13.

can anyone advise?

You can the only issue is you have to make sure they are set on the same channel.... but 2.4 GHz is 2.4GHz

I am using a way old EOL Aeronet 350 with a new linksys WAP that is B/G so yeah they should interoperate.

Thanks
Scott

Often products, particularly wireless types, are only sold in certain countries because they don't comply with the local laws. Very often wireless devices in the US are more powerfull than those allowed in europe, and although they would technically work, it may not be allowed to use them.

as much as I agree with rindi on the legal aspects of the issue ..... I would still address the question of ... will it work and the answer is yes now if the  FCC comes down on you for using to strong of reciever well that is something to keep in mind. or the equivelent to the FCC in europe.

Thanks
