1300 web interface issue

hello experts!!!

i have a 1300 fat access point which was idle for months...

when i tried to verify the configuration via gui, the previous ssid setting was no longer there. though, ip address was still set as is.

going to the ssid setting page, the ssid list box is empty, even the 'New' item is missing.

refreshed the page many times, but it didn't appear.

restored a fresh copy of the same iOS didn't help.

wanted to recode with an older iOS, but don't have one.

tried this with Explore, Firefox and Chrome... nothing helped.

also, why are autonomous web interfaces take time to refresh a page even when the laptop is directly connected to the fat ap. it's alright for a couple of access points, but i have one customer having 80 fat ap's. if the customer wishes to change the wifi password, then it would take hours to do so because of the delay with the refresh timing.

hello,  Rasika!Thanks for

hello,  Rasika!

Thanks for your reply.

Am a heavy gui-user with all my configs. i love the auto-save feature that came with it.

well, all right... guess, i will workaround to CLI.

hey, very cool site! lotsa wireless stuff!

so, any idea what happened to my idle-fat-1300-ap-suddenly-screwed-gui-interface?

i mean, it was working before. what could've made it go berserk?

just curious... and will greatly help me support clients who are still stuck with old aps.

Just to add... Another reason

Just to add... Another reason that it's slow is because it's old.  The unit might be on it's way to fail.  I have seen this in the past with other AP's and bridges that have been running for 5-10+ years.

If you see some problem in

If you see some problem in web interface pages then could you please check current software on the 1300 Ap.

If its old then try another image.

You can try the CLI if GUI not working.

Hello, abhajha!thanks for

Hello, abhajha!

thanks for your post.

Wanted to do that but i have no updated 1300 iOS version. Download site requires entitlement to get the latest version.

I did, instead, put a fresh copy of the same version. (c1310-k9w7-tar.124-3g.JA1.tar)

Hoping it would rid off of the issue, but that didn't help.

I will try with an older version today and see what good can come out of this. :)

How to get the updated version for old AP's? even the last version for the discontinued models.

I want to know the proper procedure, like going through a channel or something.

How to purchase them, legally?
