We have also been testing these.
We found that our switches would not pass traffic from the access point when
the switch port hosting 1810W access point was configured in trunk mode.
We have implemented ‘vlan dot1q tag native’ on our switches and we found out
that the 1810W was sending all traffic untagged, even when VLAN tagging is
enabled in the GUI – and therefore traffic was being dropped at the switch.
You’re OK if you don’t use ‘vlan dot1q tag native’, but we use it everywhere
for increased security, so removing that is not an option for us.
We found out that this is due to a bug - CSCva41204: Tagged Management VLAN
Option Broken for 1800/3800 - that is peculiar to the COS-AP access points.
I’ve been told this is going to be fixed in an upcoming version of code.

Subject: [WIRELESS-LAN] Cisco 1810W subtleties
If you are planning to buy the Cisco 1810W and you are planning to use the
built-in switchports, I highly advise you to look at the deployment guide and
learn about the subtleties of enabling local switching. Don’t expect for this
AP to work just like the Cisco 702W. Cisco managed to make its configuration a
little more “fun”.
Basically, in order to enable local switching, you have to configure the AP for
FlexConnect. AAAAND you also have to configure a WLAN and AP groups to make
sure your switchports map to the right VLANs. Yeah, it’s like that. Have fun.
