Re: Ap-1242 problem

Did your friend also give you some antennas with the AP?

That model does not ship with antennas, because it can be used in so many different roles.

Did you get / do you have the standard Cisco console cable? If you know the IP address, you can do the configuration using a Web Browser.

Let us know

Re: Ap-1242 problem

IF the AP is at default configuration, it should have an address of 10.0.0.1 255.0.0.0.

Connect the AP to a PC using an Ethernet cross-over cable. GIve the PC an address is 10.0.0.2 and a mask of 255.0.0.0.

Use your Web browser; point it to the AP using address 10.0.0.1

If the AP is set for defaults, you should get the web GUI.

Good Luck

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Look i found that:

Changes to the Default Configuration?Radios Disabled and No Default SSID

In this release, the radio or radios are disabled by default, and there is no default SSID. You must create an SSID and enable the radio or radios before the access point will allow wireless associations from other devices. These changes to the default configuration improve the security of newly installed access points.

Here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/1130/release/notes/b11jarnh.html#wp118648

And the question is how can i create an SSID and enable the radio without the web interface??

Re: Ap-1242 problem

At this point, we must wait until you have your console cable.

The AP may not be running it's software (corrupt or missing), or it is still configured for other parameters.

Let us know when you have a Cisco console cable, and you are able to get a prompt, any prompt.

Without details, it is very difficult. Without a console cable, it is nearly impossible to get details.

Good Luck

Re: Ap-1242 problem

if AP is set to factory default, I guess default IP configured for BVI interface will be 10.0.0.1. you can set IP to your PC NIC as 10.0.0.2 and connect it to AP. make sure you are able to ping AP IP from PC.

you can access AP GUI interface (http:// or can telnet to the IP. "cisco" is the default enable password on AP.

rate if it helps ....

Re: Ap-1242 problem

I'm able to ping ap ip from pc..

But i can go to the settings.

Even with hyperterminal or telnet or webinterface..

Maybe i must awit for the blue cisco cable.

Re: Ap-1242 problem

you mean to say that you are able to ping AP from PC. So, you should be able to connect to AP either through GUI or telnet. are you getting any error while trying to access AP from GUI or telnet.

hope i understood your problem correctly ... correct me if i am wrong.

New Member

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Yes with telnet i take the error say something with the port's or say conection closed!

With hyperterminal just nothing happen.

Thanks

Re: Ap-1242 problem

what about when you try to access AP through GUI from your internet browser.

try to access http:// from your internet browser and see what you get.

New Member

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Just the stantar message: "the page can not be found"

I do not understnd but i thinks like ScottMac say before is the cable.

Re: Ap-1242 problem

are you able to ping IP of AP from the PC?

what is the IP of AP you are trying to ping and what is the IP address configured on your PC?

New Member

Re: Ap-1242 problem

I try with Many ip like 10.0.0.1 , 10.0.0.2 , 10.0.0.3 , 192.168.1.1 ......

The stantar ip give by default my ap is 169.254.153.164

That ping give's me:

Re: Ap-1242 problem

if AP is set to factory default, BVI interface will be configured with default IP 10.0.0.1 subnet mask 255.0.0.0.

So, you need to configure static IP on your PC with IP 10.0.0.2 subnet mask 255.0.0.0, no gateway required as you will connect PC directly to AP.

you are getting IP 169.254.153.164 as you might have configured TCP/IP properties of PC NIC to get IP address automatically from DHCP server. You are trying to ping PC IP from PC itself, so it will always work. what I'm asking you is to ping 10.0.0.1 from your PC after configuring static IP with above parameters. To access AP for first time, setup a static IP manually.

Once done, try to ping AP from your PC, if you are able to ping, then try to access http:// from internet browser and you should atleast see the homepage of AP which prompt for username and password, where you can enter "cisco" in password and leave username as blank.

see if it helps ....

Re: Ap-1242 problem

after doing all changes, access http://10.0.0.1 from your PC once you have configured IP 10.0.0.2 subnet mask 255.0.0.0 no gateway. ping 10.0.0.1 from your PC.

Re: Ap-1242 problem

hmmm ... then you need to get blue console cable to see what is happening from hyperterminal.

New Member

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Yes only the blue cable rescue me...

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Oops ... I didn't see that you are trying to ping 10.0.0.2. what i want you is to ping 10.0.0.1 from your PC. Here is the things I want you to try. If it doesn't work, then only console cable can be of help. you can use console cable to connect to AP which comes with cisco switches, routers.

1. Configure 10.0.0.2 IP address on PC

2. Configure 255.0.0.0 as subnet mask on PC.

3. No gateway required on PC.

4. ping 10.0.0.1 (AP IP Address) from PC.

5. If it pings, access http://10.0.0.1 from internet browser installed in PC.

6. If you see homepage of AP, enter "cisco" in password and leave username blank.

If these doesn't work, you need console cable to see if you are getting anything on the hyperterminal of PC.

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Koronaios ,

I think your AP is not having the default IP (10.0.0.1).

you can manually set the IP address of the AP. PC that is connected to AP, from the DOS prompt, issue this command:

arp -s 10.0.0.1

Mac address would be printed on backside of your AP.

Now follow the steps suggested by saurab.

Hope this helps.

Re: Ap-1242 problem

Thank's i try but Nothing happend bhaskar_ch

If i out the mac in the backside of my ap i take that:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]

Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>arp -s 10.0.0.1

ARP: bad argument:

But i try that before with ipsu..

Thank's any away
