Configuring WPA2 in AIR-AP1231G-E-K9

Hi @ll,

I would like to implement WPA2 in my APs but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right.

What I've done is add the following commands:

dot11 ssid XXXX

   vlan 11
   authentication open
   authentication key-management wpa
   wpa-psk ascii 7 XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

interface dot 0

     encryption vlan 11 mode ciphers aes-ccm

ssid XXXX

As far as I know, aes is the encryption method for WPA2 (please, correct me if I'm wrong) so, does this mean I already have the AP configured with WPA2 ?? I've read somewhere that there is a command to specify WPA2 (typed below) but I dont seem to have that command:

authentication key-management wpa version 2

The IOS running on my AP is:

Cisco IOS Software, C1200 Software (C1200-K9W7-M), Version 12.3(8)JED1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)
Technical Support:

System image file is "flash:/c1200-k9w7-mx.123-8.JED1/c1200-k9w7-mx.123-8.JED1"

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Best Regards

You should be good for WPA2 already, for the reason you are thining. AES is a WPA2 thing, there are some cleints that can do WPA/AES but that is not a standard.

     For the 1230x, the version 2 is not a command that is available.  Try doing a show dot11 association all, and see what you get.
