Configuring Cisco Cius for Wireless Settings
Use these guidelines to configure the wireless LAN network profile. Cisco Cius supports up to four remembered wireless LANs.
If unable to add a network, check to see if there are four remembered networks already, where one of those will need to be
deleted manually in order to add a new network.
- Ensure that “Wireless” is set to “On”. (Ensure WiFi is enabled in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager)
- Either select the broadcasted Wi-Fi network or add the Wi-Fi network manually
- If adding manually, enter the “SSID” for the voice wireless LAN, which is case sensitive.
- Configure one of the following different 802.11 modes to set the frequency band.
- 5 GHz
- 2.4 GHz
(Auto mode will scan both 2.4 and 5 GHz channels and attempt to associate to the access point with a stronger signal if
the configured network is available).
- Below are the available security modes supported and which key management and encryption types can be used for
WEP (40/64 or 104/128 bit)
WEP security mode requires that the static WEP keys be entered.

WEP128 is listed as WEP104 on the Cisco Unified Wireless LAN Controllers. When Airplane mode is enabled, the Wi-Fi interface is disabled, but can be re-enabled optionally while still in Airplane mode. Shared Key authentication and 802.1x + Dynamic WEP are not supported.
