the switch.

Step 2: This line of switches utilizes Proprietary Access Points.

You can only configure 10 Access Points per switch.

The DWS-3227/3227P/3250 comes with a 10 Access Point license.

The DXS-3227/3227P/3250 requires the purchase of additional software to enable the wireless feature. Once enabled, the switch will support 10 Access Point (10 Access Point license included).

3.What is the maximum number of Access Points can I configure per D-Link switch?

You can configure a maximum of 50 access points per switch (with appropriate licenses), with Firmware version or above.

You are also able to configure a maximum of 50 Access Points in Stack Mode.

Your slave/backup switch will also require another License key to manage your access points if your master goes down.
