Jumper Settings on cisco wireless APs (1010)

Unanswered Question
Nov 7th, 2007

I noticed the other day that there are jumpers inside the 1010 APs and I was just curious on if anyone knows what they are for. I've searched the net with little luck on finding a document that explains this.

It's all just morbid curiosity, but who knows- could be handy information to know.


I have this problem too.

Hi Jeff,

Excellent question! My understanding of these jumpers (and probably why you can't much info on them) is that they are a left-over from when the AP's were part of the Airespace product line. Before Cisco purchased Airespace. The jumpers could be used to set the AP in a type of Autonomous configuration for doing Site Surveys.

If you google Airespace you may find exactly what jumper went where if you are curious.

Hope this helps!

That is how you can access the vxworks shell.

It is quite limited though

We originally looked at the airspace solution when nortel was reselling them..

I played around with a sacrificial 1020 a while back.

There was some doco available before cisco bought airspace, but it seems to have dissappeared.

There may still be some info in google cache for some airspace info @ a year or 2 back.

Here is what I found
