reset password

Hi All,

I have a used 1252 wireless AP.  I can't get into it.  How do I reset to factory default?

Thanks - Joe

Resetting to the Default Configuration

If you forget the password that allows you to configure the access point, you may need to completely reset the configuration. You can use the MODE button on the access point or the web-browser interface.

Note          The following steps reset all configuration settings to factory defaults, including passwords, WEP keys, the IP address, and the SSID.

Using the MODE Button

Follow these steps to delete the current configuration and return all access point settings to the factory defaults using the MODE button:

Step 1          Disconnect power (the power jack for external power or the Ethernet cable for in-line power) from the access point.

Step 2          Press and hold the MODE button while you reconnect power to the access point.

Step 3          Hold the MODE button until the Ethernet LED turns an amber color (approximately 2 to 3 seconds), and release the button.

Step 4          After the access point reboots, you must reconfigure the access point by using the Web browser interface, the Telnet interface, or Cisco IOS commands.
