Aironet 1100

Answered Question
Apr 24th, 2008

I am having trouble connecting an Aironet 1100. I was able to connect to via the web to do a software update on it. Now I am unable to connect to the Access now. I have flashing LED lights on the AIRONET 1100. The lights are flashing GREEN RED AMBER.

I have this problem too.

I am not able to understand this. Where is the DHCP server coming into picture?

Following are few of the following steps related to mode button -

Step 6 Press and hold the MODE button while you reconnect power to the access point.

Step 7 Hold the MODE button until the status LED turns red (approximately 20 to 30 seconds), and release the MODE button.

Step 8 Wait until the access point reboots as indicated by all LEDs turning green followed by the Status LED blinking green.

Step 9 After the access point reboots, you must reconfigure the access point by using the Web-browser interface or the CLI.

Are you allowing Step 8 and 9 to happen?

Once this is done the try to ping 10.0.0.1 which would be the APs IP.

Telnet to this IP usename Cisco password Cisco.

Hi,

Boot the AP, leave it for 10 mins. Don't connect a PC to the AP.

There are three LEDs - Eternet status and radio. FIG - 22.2 - http://cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4_3g_JA/configuration/guide/s43trb.html#wp1058384

Refer to this link and try to match the LED status -

What following link? I would like to know the indicator signals.

I am also having trouble with this product,

I reserved the MAC address on DHCP and still won't connect. After leaving it alone and trying the default address which I believe is 10.0.0.1

Currently my indicator siganls are rolling green, red and amber.

What does this mean because I am checking the manual and it tells me nothing on the installation guide

I have power cycled the 1100 and have not connected the ethernet cable to the AP. Now I have solid RED Ethernet and Status which (indicate ethernet failure during image recovery). Does this indicate that I have a bad AP and need to get a replacement. If not how can I fix this problem?
