Back up an Aironet 350 AP config?

I have a small human-services agency that would like to install a WLAN on a shoestring budget. The nature of their data requires the highest possible security, and their facilities will require a number of AP's. Is it possible to configure the first AP, back up the configuration, upload that config. to the rest of the AP's, and change unique values such as hostname, channel & IP? This would save the client a number of hours and allow them to spend the money on additional hardware. I've spent a number of hours on the CCO with no luck, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Thanks Tejal. You just "bought" a few more laptops for some very deserving people.

Thanks again!

msalm- You can accomplish this with Wavelink's Mobile Manager software. MM will auto detect and auto configure all your Cisco access points. It should save you hours of deployment and future management time. MM will also allow you to manage all security parameters, firmware updates, auto detect rogue access points and manage any access control lists.

Two ways :

- use the WLSE (Wireless LAN Solution Engine) : You can define templates, which is generic configuration, and then download this configuration to a management domain including several AP.

- Configure a first AP with the WEB server in the AP. Then in the menu 'setup' -> 'cisco services' -> 'manage system configuratio' you can download the configuration in several format. One of the format is the configuration without the IP address. Just upload this file on the other AP. BTW the file is a txt file and can be adapted with notepad is necessary.

The truly low-tech answer is to config one AP, then use it and an Ethernet cross-over cable to push the config to each additional AP (you'll need a taptop with a serial cable). If you need to get the APs mounted before the LAN connections are in place that approach will help
