hello experts
i have some old Cisco autonomous AP, such as Cisco 1250, 1260, 2602 serials, looks like it is not support to configure captive portal authentication, although i have upgrade them to the last software version, because i need setup a wireless network for guest users.
please kindly let me know it is possible or not.

It is possible if you use a captive portal which runs on a gateway device.

It depends.  If you can tunnel your traffic to a central location you could do it.

Alternatively, buy a Cisco 2504 WLC (if you have less than 75 APs and 1000 clients) and use Local Web Auth at the WLC.  Convert the APs to lightweight and join them to the WLC.  Configure Web-Auth for the SSID.
