If Switches without username and password, we cannot telnet in.

But what if Acess Point without one, are we able to telnet in?

I have this problem too.

For autonomous ap's you need to supply a local login or vty password. If you have a WLC and LAP's you can telnet to the WLC if you have that enabled, but you can't telnet to the LAP.

I have some other questions.

I notice that the vty are spilt into line vty 0 4 and line vty 5 15.

1) Now i did not put the username and password but instead i put a password in the line vty 0 4, will i still be able to telnet in?

2) I put a username and password (aaa) to the configuration but this time no password inside vty 0 4. Will i be able to telnet in?

3) Now i add in a different password (bbb) into the same configuration line vty 0 4, can i still be able to telnet in?

4) Say line vty 0 4 password is (bbb), line vty 5 15 password is (ccc) and the username 123 password (aaa).

Can i say the fifth telnet to the switch is using either (aaa) or (ccc) password?
