Expanding AP325 wireless network when only AP330's are available
We have a client with a lot of AP325's throughout his facility. We put this network in back in 2018 and his current support subscriptions are good through 2024. The client wants to expand his existing wireless network by adding more AP's in new areas of the building.
The AP325 is end-of-sale already but end-of-life on December 21, 2026.
The AP330 is not compatible with the AP325 network because one if Wi-Fi 5 and the other is Wi-Fi 6.
My initial idea was to add several AP330's and just define the same SSID's on the AP330's, then devices will roam between the AP325's and AP330's, but WG Support says the different AP types won't play nicely with each other due to power detection differences between the 2 models.
How do we expand his existing wireless network if we can't get AP325's anymore?
Has anyone tried mixing AP types like this and if so, how did it work out?
How have others dealt with this issue?
