Symbol/Motorola WS5100

If you use these Wireless switches and are still running pre-3.0 firmware, UPDATE! Huge changes made and I suspect it's Motorola weaving its magic. I had all sorts of issues running with Spectralink VoWiFi sets and coverage - updated firmware to and everything is happy now.

Other benefits of the firmware is that the CLI now mimics Cisco's IOS in many ways and the Java/Web interface is greatly improved - information is readily available and the controls make sense...

It's changed my view on this kit I was almost about to turf it in exchange for some Cisco gear or even Mikrotik (but I didn't really want to configure each AP individually).
