Mode button disabled on access points

Unanswered Question
Aug 13th, 2009

I'm working with a customer that has several Cisco 1230s with the mode button disabled. Is there anyway to recover these access points? The previous admin changed the usernames/passwords on the access points before leaving, and now we cannot reset the access points with the mode button to reconfigure them.

I have this problem too.

The AP MODE button is configured from your Cisco Wireless LAN Controller.

On the WLC use the following commands:

1) config ap rst-button enable /all

2) show ap config general

Where access-point-name is the name that identifies the access point on the WLC

Great idea, cept we don't have the username/password to log into the access point.

there are two settings: mode button and key.

Both are stored in NVRAM.

If the ESC key doesnt work either you need to either: remember the login password or contact TAC for an RMA.
