I just picked up 360 Aruba Ap 105 access points at an auction dirt cheap. Their were also a few other types, but I see no controllers. They are taking up a lot of space. Is it worth getting a controller for them or should I just send them to Goodwill for recycling? Also if I did get a controller would I have to buy a license or multiple licenses and software for the controller?

That's alot of APs.

Cisco controllers are based on # of APs and the license break points are based on the same. Not sure how Aruba does it though. You might be able to use them in stand alone mode where you manage them individually through the web GUI.

Very old 802.11 N AP.
They are going for 30 dollars per 5 pack on ebay (used). Not even sure what Goodwill will do with them.

They're N class Access Points and require a Controller to work. And the controllers need licensing. Not worth it at all. These things are e-Waste at this point.
