that is "ap mode" pretty much the same as "rommon mode" of router or "switch mode"
your OS may be corrupt
See if you still have an image installed
>boot -to load if any
If not, well you need to do image recovery of course :)
When i do a dir flash: i don't see any image.
Sorry for my little understanding,can you explain to me how i can do an image recovery?
Well 1st thing's first you need to get an image
Once you get it:
Here are the steps, there are two ways, but ill show your the one i use often:
Oh yeah, setup TFTP never forget :D
When i do a ether_init i get this error Can not acquire Tx/Tx SYN maccfg1 is 0x35 and i guess this prevents me to upload the firmware.
Is there anyother way i can upload the firmware?
Yeap there is, using the MODE button:
This is a built-in AP on a Cisco 887vaw.
Where do i turn off the AP802 on the 887vaw router?
I guess your settings are for a normal access point.
Thanks and sorry for my little understanding of cisco wireless!
The configuration is pretty much the same,
Since that is an 8xx series, probably the whole IOS has gone haywire
Recover it using the normal process in a router
its pretty much the same as an AP, it still has a dot11radio interface
Oh yeah, with regards to your device you might need to enter
service-module wlan-ap0 session
It's a command that lets you enter the ap configuration (w/c) is in autonomous
Again, you need to configure an IP
Better yet check this configuration guide :)
And a full pdf guide: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/800/880/software/configuration/guide/SCG_880_series.pdf
Okay okay, I was visualizing your problem annd poof it came to me
once you entered: service-module wlan-ap 0 session
you went to ap right?
is it ap> or ap:
If its ap> then that is it!
You can start configuring your WLAN device
If you want the UI, check the ip of the BVI interface, it is automatically routed by the router
once you are in the ap> section
do; show ip int br
to see IP of the BVI
access the UI, with default creds: Cisco and Cisco as password
Then configure wireless,
If im corrent that supports MBSSID but for now configure just one
You can do it by GUI, but I usually do it through CLI:
dot11 ssid MY_WIFI -your ssid
authentication key-management wpa version 2
wpa-psk ascii p@ssw0rd
interface dot11radio 0
encryption mode ciphers aes
I would highly recommend reading the links I gave you and the PDF for everthing you need to know and further question sperhaps are there, neatly arranged :)
It's in ap: mode and not ap>
How do i turn of the ap and where is this hold mode button?
I will have a look at the links you sent.
The hold button i am talking about exist in the AP only.
Have you tried reloading the IOS of the 800 series router?
Im pretty sure that it is bundled, basically one IOS for the router and AP
Can you try a firmware refresh and load a new IOS and boot that one. See if it works.
See this link in recovering 800 series routers;
I have already loaded a new ios on the router side and still when i login the ap
i always get ap:
Trying all the commands to load an ios via tftp fails.
What does not work is the commad ether_init which does not bind the router interface ethernet 0 to the ap bvi interface.
The ap has it's own ios and i think this time Cisco to me has done a messy way of recovering a corrupt imbedded ap.
The best thing should have been to load an ap ios from the router flash but i don't think that's possible.
Have you tried accessing the configuration terminal once you are in ap?
If that works, then you can configure your AP
the ether_init initializes TFTP Transfer
Based on what I know, the APs image is embedded on the router, this typically it has two IOS
See this link as well as basis: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/routers/800-series-routers/qa_c67_458884.html
It's the 2nd question
So pretty much you need an 800 series AP image.
Then if it is really ap:, then you are really in ap: mode, the AP image is lost (w/c is weird considering the router's image is fine)
Can you try recovering it again?
once you are in ap: mode, type in >set
to see the default values and give you an idea on what values you must set for TFTP to work
Also, please make sure you are directly connected to the device
try recovering using different ports
To add, please make sure you have a TFTP server software such as tftpd32 software.
