Beacon Period and DTIM

You can customize the beacon period and DTIM on a WLC and AP.

For an autonomous AP you can use :
AP5(config-if)#beacon period ?
20-4000 Kusec (or msec)
AP5(config-if)#beacon dtim-period ?
1-100 dtim count

It said at the documentation of the WLC 4.2 that the beacon period should be between 100ms and 600ms, but when you configure it the values can be :

The DTIM count should be between 1 and 255.
At the WCS you can put the same values like the WLC’s. There is no difference.
