How can I change SSID name on Aironet currently used by my wirel

The easieist method would be to pull a show run from the AP, then copy from dott11 SSID down to the ! at the end.

Paste this into a notepad.  If you just want to change the SSID :

no dot11 ssid < old SSID name >

dot11 ssid < new SSID name>

then leave the rest the same. and copy the new SSID to the !

then to fix it all up in the AP

conf t

interface dot11radio 0

no ssid < old ssid name >

exit

no dot11 ssid < old SSID >

*paste in the new SSID config*

exit

interfce dot11radio 0

ssid < new ssid name >

so at the end your text file should look similar to this:

conf t

interface dot11radio 0

no tsunami

exit

no dot11 ssid tsunami

dot11 ssid Secured

authentication open

authentication key-management wpa

wpa-key ascii 0 1234578

exit

interface dot11radio 0

ssid Secured

exit

Hey Steve, may I borrow your config?

Hi Achamyeleh Abebe,

Based on Steve's config above, paste this in a notepad and save the notepad to, say NEW_CONFIG.txt.

Using TFTP, point the TFTP software to the location of the NEW_CONFIG.txt file.  Remote into your WAP and run this simple command:  copy tftp:///NEW_CONFIG.txt run".

Try that.  I use this method all the time.
