A local business went out of busniess near me and sold me their Cisco Aironet 1200 wireless access point. The told me that all I needed to do was connect it to my currect router/modem and it will expand my wireless connection greatly. However, they didnt give me the cd and I dont know how i can get logged in to it. Basically im asking how do i get this thing working?
Hopefully they have given you the external power adapter to power this AP. If so you can power this AP & connect it to your local internet router/modem using ethernet cable. If that is already preconfigured with a wireless network, you should be able to see a wireless network adverstise when trying to connect a laptop or wifi capable phone to that network (not sure what is the name & if any password required to connect to that wireless network). If you see a wireless network and if it ask a password to connect to it (& you know the password) then you are good to go with it.
But if they have not given to you that password (or you want to setup your own network name/password), then your option is to reconfigure this AP. As long as you can get the CLI access (via a console cable connect to a computer COMM port & using a Hyper Terminal). Default username/password should be Cisco/Cisco (& enable password also Cisco)
If you get the CLI access here is the configuration you need to do, to get a secure wireless network setup
1. Erase the configuration of your Autonomous AP & Reload to comeup with zero ocnfig
Erasing the nvram filesystem will remove all configuration files! Continue? [confirm]
Erase of nvram: complete
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: no
Proceed with reload? [confirm]
2. Then do the following configuration with required SSID name & preshared-key (password) as you required. Once you do this configuration & you connect this to your local internet router/modem, then you should see your newly created wireless network is available & you can connect to it using the passwork you have created.
