Aironet 3500: Spectrum Expert Connect Mode

Answered Question
Sep 10th, 2010

How do I connect to a 3500 to see the spectrum analysis? The manual says to download version 4.0 of the Cisco Spectrum Expert software but the latest verion is 3.3.52. What am I missing?

I want to get the most out of these new APs !!

Thanks,

Andrew

I have this problem too.

It is still Beta code.  Not only do you need the Beta code, but a key

as well.  After you have that installed, you log into your controller and

change the mode of your AP to SE-Connect and reboot the AP.

Then you go to the AP, copy another "key" from the AP and also

gather the IP address if it is DHCP.

You paste the key into your Spectrum Expert that is running on your

laptop, along with the IP address of the AP.

Then you can remotely see your spectrum.

I have done this before since I tested a 3500 for a few weeks before

sending it back to Cisco.

I'm impressed.. it is definately a nice feature.

Hi Andrew

Have you already found something? I also search for version 4.
