Re: AP password

I already view the links that you post. but there is only the reset option. I want to just recover the password without loosing my configuration.(is there any procedure to do that like Routers and Switches).

Re: AP password

You follow what they show and then instead of deleting the config.old you would:

Rename the configuration file to its original name:

ap# rename flash:config.text.old flash:config.text

Copy the configuration file into memory:

ap# copy flash:config.text system:running-config

Source filename [config.text]?

Destination filename [running-config]?

Press Return in response to the confirmation prompts.

The configuration file is now reloaded, and you can change the password.

Enter global configuration mode:

ap# configure terminal

Change the password:

ap (config)# enable secret password

then wr mem

There is no Console Port in the AP 1100 series

Did you setup snmp... if so, you can get the config or even push a new configuration. With the 1100, you can only reset the ap.
