Enabling 802.11a/b/g on Cisco 700 AIR-SAP702I-A-K9


I recently acquired a Cisco 700 series AP and enabled 2.4GHz radio with 802.11N. I reviewed the configuration guide for the 700 series but I did not find any reference to setting up the radios for any of the other standards such as 802.11A/B/G.


Is is possible to configure this unit as 802.11A/B/G? I attached my current configuration for reference.

You need to enable the

You need to enable the interface Dot11Radio1 to use the 5GHz band.  In your configuration, you only have the 2.4GHz Band operational:

interface Dot11Radio0 (2.4 GHz Band)
 no ip address
interface Dot11Radio1 (5 GHz Band)
 no ip address
 shutdown  (assign an SSID to this interface and perform a no shut)
 antenna gain 0
 dfs band 3 block
 packet retries 64 drop-packet
 channel dfs
 station-role root
 bridge-group 1
 bridge-group 1 subscriber-loop-control
 bridge-group 1 spanning-disabled
 bridge-group 1 block-unknown-source
 no bridge-group 1 source-learning
 no bridge-group 1 unicast-flooding


The commands for this are in the configuration guide for the version of IOS on your autonomous AP:



The full Configuration Guide can be found here:

Chapter 6 covers this.
