This is my setup:

Meru wireless controller<->switch1<------->switch2<->AP

switch1 & switch 2 are Catalyst 3750 layer 3 switches.
The AP communicates with the controller via layer 2.
The controller associate the ssid with the DHCP IP addresses from the switch

The link between switch 1 and switch 2 is currently a trunk and if I change that link to a routed link. Will the communication between the AP and the controller still work?

Thanks

Meru APs can communicate with the controller via layer2 or layer3, so yes it will work.
