Q>> What are the options to configure the WPA on embedded AP in Cisco 1941.

ANS>> WPA version 1 and WPA version 2

I  mean to say how to configure WPA encryption on multiple ssid. Lets say i  have 2 SSID's . One is encrypted with wep and other need to be  encrypted with wpa.

ANS >> WPA is the Authentication... not the encryption... WEP is the encryption not authentication..

If we are using WPA.. then no need to configure WEP encryption... the encryption should be either

1>> CHIPHERS TKIP

or

2>> CIPHERS AES

so the configuration will be..

en

config t

dot11 ssid

auth open

vlan X

auth key-management WPA (version 1 or 2)

end

wr

[you can configure the WPA version by using the question mark after WPA and  select the appropriate, version 1 then use TKIP and if VERSION 2 then  use AES]

en

config t

encryption valn X mode ciphers TKIP (WPA) or encryption valn X mode ciphers AES (WPA-v2)

no shut

end

wr

the above wil do it for one SSID.. same way the same config hold good for another if we map the corresponding VLAN..

i request you to let me know how this works out for you!!

Re: How to configure WPA on embedded AP in Cisco 1941

I managed to resolve the subject problem. Solution is as below:

AP(config)#interface dot11radio 0

AP(config-if)#encryption vlan xxx mode ciphers tkip

On each SSID

AP(config-ssid)#wpa-psk ascii password
