Wireless WAP

I have an extra Cisco and Motorola WAP for the wireless receivers. I know that they sell a commercial version of the Cisco WAP in stores for the purpose of being a Wireless Access Point. My question is can I install another firmware version on the att cisco wap so I can use it as a true WAP?

Nope.

Without an AT&T wireless STB, it's completely useless.

This was done on purpose in order to prevent there from being a secondary market for these WAP's.

It's useless because of the firmware, but if I updated it to the firmware of the exact device (but the one you can buy at walmart), it wouldn't act like a normal WAP?

It's not exactly the same, there are some slight differences.

People have tried this before, without any success.
