Metal Case Aironet 350 IOS

Unanswered Question
Mar 27th, 2007

I have a Metal case Cisco Aironet 350 with IOS software. I am trying to perform the password recovery on it but the device does not have a mode button on it like the others that I can get to.

How do you deal with this issue?

I have this problem too.

Hi Lawrence,

Here is the method to do a factory reset;

Reset the AP?AP 350 That Runs Cisco IOS Software

Complete the steps in this section in order to reset an AP 350 that runs Cisco IOS Software.

Note: Cisco IOS Software-based APs have a default configuration that includes a username and password combination. Both the username and password are "Cisco", which is case-sensitive. After you reset to factory defaults, be prepared to give "Cisco" as both the username and password when you are prompted by either the GUI or the CLI.

The AP350 does not have a MODE button to reset the AP to factory defaults. So, if neither the GUI or CLI is available with sufficient privileges in the AP350, complete these steps to delete the current configuration and return all access point settings to the factory defaults using the CLI.

Reboot the access point by removing power and reapplying power. Let the access point boot until the command prompt appears and the access point begins to inflate the image. When you see these lines on the CLI, press ESC: Loading "flash:/" ...########################################################################### ################################################################################ ################################################################################ ####################

Once you press ESC, this information is displayed on the CLI screen..

Xmodem file system is available.

Note: The AP is configured with the factory default values that include:

The IP address, which is set to receive an IP address with DHCP

The default username and password, "Cisco"

After the full Cisco IOS Software is loaded and connectivity is reestablished, delete the config.old file from Flash.

Issue the del flash:config.old Cisco IOS Software command at an enabled prompt from the CLI.

ap#del flash:config.old

Delete filename [config.old]

Delete flash:config.old [confirm]
