Cisco 2602 Autonomous AP 802.11n issue

Hi there,

Recently, we purchased a cisco 2602i lightweight AP and manually upgrade to autonomous. When we show the radio interface on the AP, it indicates both 2.4G and 5G radio interfaces are 802.11n hardware. See message below:

507#sh interfaces dot11Radio 1
Dot11Radio1 is up, line protocol is up
  Hardware is 802.11N 5GHz Radio, address is 2834.a2b9.48e0 (bia 2834.a2b9.48e0)

We tried to connect to the AP using different client devices(laptops/mobile phones) and all devices see the wireless radio type 802.11g(on 2.4g interface) and 802.11a(on 5g interface), not 802.11n. Should I type some special commands to enable 802.11n network on that AP?

I tested different speed and channel width in the radio interface, but no one works.

Thanks in advance,
Chandler

You can only use 802.11n with AES encryption.

Can you post your config please?
