I work for an elementary school in Detroit. We bought a Cisco 1130 access point for use on our LAN. The problem is that our wireless laptops are not receiving its signal.
Here are the details.
1. I plugged the access point into our network and powered it up.
2. I used IPSU to find the IP address.
3. I used Internet Explorer to log into the access point.
4. I gave it a fixed IP address on our domain.
5. I also entered the SSID and the WEP key.
Everything looks good. The circular light on the top of the access point is green. Unfortunately, Windows XP cannot "see" the network signal.
Is there anyone who could help me to get this thing working?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your laptop wireless is configure at what modes? b/g? and make sure your AP is configured to either 1 of these modes or both.
are you able to "see" the AP's SSID from the laptop?
Thanks for replying to my question!
When I click the menu for "View Wireless Networks" I do NOT see the SSID that I assigned to the access point.
Our laptops are configured to wireless G.
All I can guess is that I must have configured something wrong. I kept the default settings for most items. I would be happy to try any suggestions you might have. The kids can't use the laptops without this working.
THAT DID IT!!!
On the "Home" page, I saw...
Fast Ethernet: Up Arrow (Green)
Radio0-802.11G: Down Arrow (Red)
Radio1-802.11A: Down Arrow (Red)
When I clicked through, I found that the service was marked as Disabled. I went to the "Settings" tab and clicked the "Enable" radio button. Presto! My test laptop immediately found the network connection. Our students will be able to start using them tomorrow, thanks to your help.
We really appreciate it.
Only you, as the person who started the thread can mark it as solved with the Red checkmark :) While you are doing that don't forget to give Seth a nice rating for helping to solve this issue.
Previously i also have this issue.
Please kindly check the following using the command :
ap01#sh ip int brief
Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol
BVI1 *.*.*.* YES NVRAM up up
Dot11Radio0 unassigned YES NVRAM up up
(make sure that the Dot11Radio0 'up' and running) and make sure that the status was not in 'reset' mode.
Next, just advise to fix the wireless channel either 1,6 or 11.
