1240AG# configure terminal

1240AG (config)# interface dot11radio 0

1240AG (config-if)# encryption vlan 40 mode ciphers tkip

1240AG (config-if)# ssid Guest

1240AG (config-if-ssid)# vlan 40

1240AG (config-if-ssid)# authentication open

1240AG (config-if-ssid)# authentication key-management wpa

1240AG (config-if-ssid)# wpa-psk ascii log2011mfe

After you do the config in the cli you need to do a wr mem.

Re: help aironet 1240 ag

Hi Luis and welcome to CSC.

What Steve and Leo are mentoning about the "wr mem" is to SAVE your config after you have configured your access point. Have you done that ?

Re: help aironet 1240 ag


My colleagues metnioned you should save the config but I think it should work without saveing the config. if config not saved then you will lose hte configuraiton after restart. However, after configuation and before save the configuraiton should be applied.

What do you think guys?

Make sure that your radio interface is not shutdown.

(show ip int brief) command will show you what interfaces are up and what are down.

but before that, have you configured the SSID?
this is configured before configuring the interface:

(dot11 ssid Guest).

It was long time since I dealt with autonomous. But I am sure that dot11 SSIDs are configured separately (not inside the interface) with their authentication mechanism. Then After doing that you add the SSID under the interface (ssid Guest).

Try it this way.

Good luck.

Re: help aironet 1240 ag

One more thing came to my mind:

you need to enable broadcast for the SSID with the command "guest-mode".

are you doing this in your configuration?
