    I have a Linksys WAP running a 792X phone in my lab.  It even supports encryption.  The phone will use any 802.11 compatible AP.  The key is to make sure it will obtain an ip address from DHCP with the option 150 defined to point to the CUCM for TFTP.  

    Let me know if you need any more details.

    Yes, I tested, but I have 7921, but I can't see the WPA option, so I set open+WEP and set 128 bit of encryption key. it is working with 3com access point. it is getting an IP address from Call Manager dhcp.

    Thanks for your help.
