Aironet 1100 Reset cannot login

Aironet 1100 Reset cannot login

Aironet 1100 Reset cannot login

Hello, I have a Cisco Aironet 1100

That when I follow the factory reset procedures, I cannot log in with the default user/pass of "Cisco"

I have followed the following instructions:


I can ping the AP, but I cannot telnet, or web into it with Cisco/Cisco.

Any ideas? Thank you.


RE: Aironet 1100 Reset cannot login

Looks like I had two out of three bad access points.

What is really weird, is that the status LED cycle in sequence like they are going down a ladder.

I cant find on Cisco's site what that means, I know what the indicators are, and what color means what, but this sequence of lights is really weird.

So, doing the same exact procedure, only one out of three access points worked.

Hi try download IPSU from cisco utility and then retrieve IP address which might be
go to the url you might be able to go into the AP

before you reset try reseting by power off and then power on  pressing the reset button at the same time and then wait for some time you will see red light and then amber light and then all 3 of them turns onto green then you start this IPSU utility to log in
