what is the Maximum Amount of SSIDs for Cisco1240Ag AP?

Tittle says it all.

Please do not post links to Cisco's Knowledge base because it have read it all.

I need professional assistance from a person who has used a 1240 AP before.

Thank you I hope I did not put off as being rude or picky.

In controller mode, the limit was 8 BSSIDs before and 16 BSSIDs from Controller version 4.2 (see here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps430/products_qanda_item09186a00806a4da3.shtml )
For standalone, the same seems to apply, you can check yourself on the AP:

AP# show controllers dot11Radio 0 | i SSI
Number of supported simultaneous BSSID on Dot11Radio0: 16

This could of been hard to understand.

My question is:

What is the maximum amount of SSID's broadcasting at the same time?

Thank you

I understand that when you use a 1200 series lightweight access point, they can only communicate with 2006 series or 4400 series controllers. The access points support eight Basic Service Set Identifiers (BSSIDs) per radio and a total of eight wireless LANs per access point. When a lightweight access point associates to a controller, only wireless LANs with IDs 1 through 8 are pushed to the access point.

IOS-LWAPP converted AP only support the first 8 WLANs (SSID) you create, it will give you a warning message on number nine. If you need more than the 8 ssids, you can try AP groups.  Note that the access points do not support Layer 2 LWAPP. They must get an IP address and discover the controller using DHCP, DNS, or IP subnet broadcast.

As a whole 1130,1200 and 1240 LWAPP AP models only support 1-8 SSIDs (whereas AP1000 series supports 1-16 SSIDs).
