usb to serial converter console access on aironet 1131

I am having difficulty accessing the console port utilizing a usb to serial converter. My settings are 9600, 8,n,1 and flow control is none.

The converter works if I use it for switches and router but fails on the aironet.

I can access the aironet if I go directly to the serial port.

Hi,

I haven't seen this problem except when I chose the incorrect COM port in my terminal emulator. Otherwise, usb-to-serial cables haven't presented any issues with Aironet equipment.

Sorry I couldn't help further. Maybe someone else has seen this issue.

I ran into this using cheap serial adaptors I'd picked up from eBay (they work for everything else). Happened to try an old (but better made) on from Keyspan, and it worked perfectly.

Well it seemed like you found your answer. It works with your switches and routers and if you connect directly to the serial it also works. Get a different usb to serial. I have used cables to go brand.
