when configuring a Cisco AP on the console port, you need to be set for 9600/none/8/1 with flowcontrol set to off.
Yes, that is correct and those are the settings on my terminal-emulator and on the console port. I have access to the consoleport and it gives output, since I receive status-messages and receive the whole boot-sequence but it doesn't accept input.
I know my cable works because I can swap it to another device console port where it works right away.
Since I have telnet access to the AP, I can configure it and take a configuration listing like this:
line con 0
line vty 0 4
! Totally default.
and also :
AP-ROOT#sh line console 0

Above I can see that there are 2 stopbits on the serial port of console 0. I tried change My terminal to that but to no good.
Hope this gives a clue. *s*
is this possible to mange this access point via GUI or Deoes it have Defulat ip address , or the only way to mange this access point by telnet
in simple words how to mnage or access this
Here is a guide for a basic config that includes GUI. While it's a different ap model config is the same ..

Since my account-name has changed, I will manully declare tht I'm happy with the response. Thank You every one.
Can not resolve questionthough....
For 1262AP, you nee this :
To access the command-line console, connect a DB-9 to RJ-45 serial cable (Cisco part number AIR-CONCAB-1200) from your PC to the RS-232 console port on the access point. Then open a terminal emulator to view the express setup screen and identify the IP address. Use these port settings for the terminal session: 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.
Note if xon/xoff flow control does not work, use no flow control.
Well, if this is the good old terminal cable access via console port, I have done this many, many times to numerous devices.
My cable works, my terminal-emulator works. I tried the differen flow-controls. But too no avail.
The IP-address wouldn't be needed in this approach.
But thanks any way.
Nobody knows if it is possible to give input via console port? *s*
The AP is no other than other cisco routers and switches
1) is it possible....
-> yes the console port is meant to access the AP locally
2) At default... output only
-> No that is not correct, a (factory default) stand-alone AP can be configured using the console port
hence input will be accepted.
You have tried many options with cable and terminal emulatot that works with other (cisco) devices.
here my suggestions:
- either the console input line is faulty
-> bad luck your only alternative are telnet or http (or another AP)
- or console input is somehow disabled in the configuration.
-> this may be solved by resetting the AP to factory default
or by doing passworwd recovery procedure so startup-config is not loaded, but still present in flash for inspection
Do you know if this is an stand-alone AP or light-weight?
when light-weight, console access may be blocked bij the wireless management system.
(these are also lines in the config)
Thank You for Your reply.
As stated allready, it should not be related to cable or settings of terminal-emulator.
The name of the AP reflects that it is an autonomous (stand alone) AP. A lightweight would be named "LAP".
I have resigned long time ago and telnet to get access. No big problem.
As I described, I can not close this thread, since I changes account but pls. consider it closed.
