Motorola AP-7131 dependent mode?

It seems that not all AP-7131’s are the same. There are some that are meant to be used only together with a central controller like RFS4000 or RFS6000.

This is called, in Motorola terms, ‘dependent mode’, and is hard-coded into the device. The “D” in the model ID stands for “dependent”, like in this example:

Motorola AP-7131-66000-D-WR

Such a device will not enable any radio unless directed to do so by a central controller.

One of the reasons this is done is to prevent theft of access points from public locations.
