wap4410n asks for an 8 digit code on access point

            I am trying to reset up an accesspointandwhen I go to wireless connections and try to connect to it I am asked for an 8 digit number that is supposed to be on the access point.  But there has never been an 8 digit code on the access point.  All that is on there is a serial number, MAC address and a PID VID but no 8 number code.   When I go to 192.168.1.245 in internet explorer it will not connect to it.  Is there any way to get this setup without the 8 digit code?

wap4410n asks for an 8 digit code on access point

Christopher,

The 8 digit code is for WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). You can read about WPS in the help file or the Admin Guide:

http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/wireless/access_point/csbap/wap4410n/administration/guide/WAP4410N_Admin_Guide.pdf

Please note:

"On the Cisco WAP4410N, firmware 2.0.5.3 and later releases disabled WPS by default for better security protection."

There are known security risks when using WPS, so use it sparingly.
