Air 1131AG - Cannot access unit with http

Answered Question
Sep 3rd, 2009

I just bought two 1131AG's and am not able to access either unit with Internet Explorer.

Both units will get an IP address from my DHCP server and are pingable. Unfortunately, ports 21, 80, and 443 are not open and the Cisco IPSU does not see the unit either.

The fact that I have two brand new units that have exactly the same problem makes me think I am doing something wrong.

I also have console access.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Base on your part number, you've just taken delivery of Lightweight Access Point. So you'll need to convert the LWAP to autonomous (if this is your intention).

Go to the above-mentioned link and the procedure you're looking for is under the heading "Using a TFTP Server to Return to a Previous Release".

Good luck.

Did you buy an AP with autonomous (aIOS) or LWAP image loaded?

Sounds like the AP's loaded with LWAP image.

How do I check to know what image I have?

I've setup at least a 1000 AP's but never a Cisco device. Should it be this difficult?

And thank you for replying. I appreciate your help.

The part number on the box say's "AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9".

leolaohoo, You are absolutly right, and after reading and learning about LWAP versus automomous mode it is clear to me know what the problem is.

I called my supplier and am exchanging the two AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9 for two AIR-AP1131AG-A-K9.

Thank you for getting back to me and helping me out. I learned something today.

Thanks for the rating. If the supplier knows what they are selling, I'd covert the APs from LWAP to autonomous and return the APs to you. Less hassle and less paperworks (inventory control).
