Wireless Surveying Problem

  I am trying to configure an air-ap 1131ag-e-k9 as a stand alone ap for surveying on customer sites using airmagnet. Unfortunately I thought the radio outputs of 2.4 & 5 Ghz would be on by default but this is not the case. I have successfully enabled both with ssid & no shutdown. I can see both radio transmissions but only see the bssid (Mac addresses). When I try to connect I am asked for a sophisticated security key, how can I find this & can I make this simpler by having no security as there will be no network connection to the ap?

You can do something basic like this... of course you have to decide the power and the channel

dot11 ssid survey
authentication open
guest-mode

!

interface Dot11Radio0
no ip address
no ip route-cache
!
ssid survey

Thanks for this I have configured as suggested but still am not able to see ssid or able to connect to Bssid. Any more help would be appreciated.

can you provide the running-config from your AP?

If you're configured like scott said:

dot11 ssid survey
authentication open
guest-mode

and under the radio you haven't defined any kind of encryption level, it should be a wide open broadcasting SSID....

I think providing the configuration here might be the easiest way to help.

Sorry about the poor intelligence as I am not Cisco trained, just trying to get the ap up and running for wireless survey, I have got a wireless router which works ok with airmagnet but does not look professional as customer has got Cisco aps on other sites. How do I configure open broadcasting for the ssid survey & how do I output running config?

Thanks very much for your help, have re-configured as per your advice & can now see ssid & log on via airmagnet.
