Q. What is changing?
A. Cisco is extending the warranty period for Cisco Aironet 1140 and 1250 Series Access Points from the previously offered 90-day warranty to a limited lifetime warranty (LLW). Technical support from Cisco TAC is not included in the warranty terms.
Q. When will the limited lifetime warranty changes be effective?
A. Changes will be effective on Apr 27, 2010:
• The Cisco Aironet 1140 and 1250 Series Access Points warranty will change from a 90-day warranty to a limited lifetime warranty effective April 27, 2010. To accommodate recent orders, any products purchased within 90 days prior to Apr 27, 2010 will have the limited lifetime hardware warranty. Products purchased before those dates will continue to be covered by the 90-day warranty.
• Cisco Aironet 1040, 1260 and 3500 Series Access Points will be covered by the limited lifetime warranty from the first day of shipment.
• 802.11n access points are the only Cisco Aironet products covered by the limited lifetime warranty. All other Cisco Aironet products including 802.11a/g based access points, WLAN controllers, antennas and accessories will continue to ship with existing warranties.
