One thing to note that on the newer IOS's the Radio's cannot be enabled until the SSID is set. You may have been seeing this result;
Changes to the Default Configuration-Radios Disabled and No Default SSID
In this release, the radio or radios are disabled by default, and there is no default SSID. You must create an SSID and enable the radio or radios before the access point will allow wireless associations from other devices. These changes to the default configuration improve the security of newly installed access points.
Rick's my nickname. Thank you...I gor the Radio configured. I ran the carrier test...all was good. I have a static ip address of 10.23.12.254 w/a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a gateway at 10.23.12.18 I've connect the Cisco to my ethernet port and the signal strength is excellent but there is little or no connectivity. I think i want to scream or cry...whichever comes first...any ideas?
Sorry for the delay, I was out for a BBQ :) Don't worry you're making good progress. Are you saying you can't connect via wireless? Are you you broadcasting the SSID? Have you configured A or B/G data rates? What about security?
I know, so many questions. This stuff is hard to configure to start with but it will come together for sure.
