AP 1200 IOS Update

I just updated the firmware on an 1200 access point, using the AP1200-Cisco-IOS-Upgrade-Image-v1.img image file I downloaded from Cisco.

Now, when I try to browse out to the AP using a browser, I'm prompted with a username/password box. I have no idea what the password is and can't find any documentation on what it might be.

Now I can't even configure the AP, is there something I'm missing??

Re: AP 1200 IOS Update

I upgraded a 1200 to ISO. Before the upgrade I downloaded the config from the 1200. Using the convertion application I uploaded the config (.cfg) and the helper image (.img) to the AP and Now I am not able to access the AP through telnet or http.

The Ap was previosly configured with a username and a password. say username: ABC passwd: XYZ

I have tried Cisco/Cisco, ABC/XYZ, Cisco/XYZ...and so on.

What step am I missing ?

Re: AP 1200 IOS Update

Are you even being prompted for the username/password? We ran into a similliar situation, where we weren't even being prompted for the username after we updated. Ended up sending the units back for replacements.

Re: AP 1200 IOS Update

The default user/password is Cisco/Cisco

If it does not work then leave user name blank and try just the password Cisco.

If the browser does not work how about the CLI interface? have you tried? Connect you PC to the serial interface using Hyperterminal and reboot the unit at least you will see what it does.

Since you lost the unit configuration then I would try a hardware reset again, push and hold the MODE button and then recycle the AP power, this should force the unit to go back to default settings which is Cisco/Cisco.

Good luck!

Try (user name) null or blank

(password) Cisco

Cisco is case sensitive.

The global password is in the documentation.

Re: AP 1200 IOS Update

I have tried all the combinations, but I ma still not able to login to the web page.

I tried the upgrade on a production unit( assuming the CAC tool will retaining my old config).

I tried to immulate the same senario ,

Configured it all the parameters ( username passwd, time server, etc)with the Vx OS on it and use CAC tool to upgrade it, and it workd excactly like the production unit and does not allow users the login thru web. But I can use Cisco/cisco from the console.

I think the CAC tool is either not devloped correctly or lacks documentation.

Presntly I use the CAC tool to collects the VX config,

Modify it by add the lines

ap(config)#username ABC password 7 XYX

and use this config and the helper image to upgrade the APs.

Thank you for your replies.

Re: AP 1200 IOS Update

Have you tried Admin/cisco or Admin/Cisco? Worked for me on a 1220 w.IOS upgrade.
