LWAPP Access Points

Guys,

I have an issue in our Lightweight Access Points, we have 1242AG, the strange thing happen is, when I connect to the console to configure the access point, the text are garbled, I tried another access point but I got the same result, I used different hyperterminal application, change my console cable but still the same.

Anybody who can share the same experience what I have.

I check the Cisco Tac site maybe someone has already raise this issue but I did not find any.

Thank you.

Well from my experience, it is the baud rate setting of the com port. Double check the setting on the term server or the laptop device manager. If you console into the wlc also and see the same thing, then it is an issue with your laptop or device you are using to console into the ap.

Re: LWAPP Access Points

Hi,

It works in all other devices such as routers and switches except for Lightweight Access Point with the same settings of the comfort.

Thanks.

Re: LWAPP Access Points

Well if it works on your routers and switches, then there must be an issue with the LAP's. To have more than one that is bad is rare. Are these LAP's on the network and connected to a WLC?

Re: LWAPP Access Points

Yes we have a WLC and I checked the other LAP to verify if the problem is from the IOS but I got the same result.The strange thing here is, when I try to console the LAP, Partly I got the correct characters and the other is not.

Thank you

Re: LWAPP Access Points

That is weird... this happens even after you reboot the LAP while consoled into the LAP?

Re: LWAPP Access Points

I've had a lot of oddities with AP console connections as well (works fine on routers, switches, etc.) but not on AP's.

Using Putty - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

is your best bet if you aren't already using it.

Re: LWAPP Access Points

I misspoke on my earlier post. Use Putty for Telnetting into the AP's, use Tera Term for console connections into the AP's.
