Access the CLI in an 1142N


I am trying to acces a new aironet 1142n. I have tried to access the CLI and get into config, it comes up that config is not supported.

I try and get it an ip address from my dhcp server, can not access it that way

I have tried to telnet to it, i get to it then without the password set in the vty i am denined and dropped.

I can only access the EN command lines at this time. Still trying different things to get it to work so I can start to use it.

config is not supported.

That's because the AP is running controller-based IOS.

Can you verify if you are running a controller-based wireless environment or an autonomous wireless environment?

If you are not running controller-based IOS, follow the link below:
