Cisco Aironet 1200 series ( AIR-LAP1231G-E-K9 )

Unanswered Question

hi there,

I have this wireless access point but i cant configure it.

I can see the boot with the hyper-terminal windows (xp), the ip adress is (dhcp) but i cant go on with IE or Firefox.

When im on a console text (AP#) and want to configure terminal (i've tried conf term, conf terminal, config terminal and configure terminal) it doesnt works.

So i cant configure my access point.

(apologie my english :) Thanks for your help.

I have this problem too.

it is better u configure static IP address for your AP and here is the Procedure.

ap>en (u should provide enable password by default is Cisco with Capital C)

ap#conf t

ap(config)#int BVI 1

ap(config-if)#ip add (any ip address which u want to configure with subnet mask).

after this u can access ur AP interface in ur browser whith the same ip which u configure.

anyways can u write what is error it gaves when u write conf t.

Hi Emmanuel,

The problem here is that the model you are using ( AIR-LAP1231G-E-K9 )

is a Lightweight or LWAPP AP not an Autonomous AP that can be configured using the method you are trying. This is a very common problem that should be quite fixable :)

Here is the related info :)

Using a TFTP Server to Return to a Previous Release

Follow these steps to revert from LWAPP mode to autonomous mode by loading a Cisco IOS release using a TFTP server:

Hope this helps!


PS: your English is just fine my friend!
