Installation Summary
Installing the access point involves these operations:
•
Mounting the access point
•
Connecting power
•
Obtaining an IP address
•
Configuring power
•
Configuring basic settings
•
Configuring security settings
Before you install the access point, make sure that you are using a computer
connected to the same network as the access point, and obtain the following
information from your network system administrator:
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
13
•
A system name
•
The case-sensitive wireless service set identifier (SSID) for your radio
network
•
A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) community name and
the SNMP file attribute (if SNMP is in use)
If you are not connected to a DHCP server, you can assign an IP address to
the access point using the CLI. In this situation, obtain a unique IP address
for your access point, a default gateway, and subnet mask from your network
system administrator.
Mounting the Access Point
Cisco Aironet 3500, 1260, 1140, 1130, and 1040 series access points can be
mounted in several configurations, including on a suspended ceiling, on a
hard ceiling or wall, on an elecrtical or network box, and above a suspended
ceiling. Click this URL to browse to complete access point mounting
instructions:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/mounting/guide/ap
mount.html
14
78-xxxxx-0x
Caution
Do not use plastic wall anchors or the keyhole slots on the
mounting bracket for ceiling installations. When mounting the
access point on a hard ceiling, use four fasteners capable of
maintaining a minimum pullout force of 20 lbs (9 kg).
Connecting Power
Connect the 1130AG series access point to a power source. The access point
can be powered locally by using an AC power module or over the Ethernet
using power sourcing equipment (PSE). Regardless of the method you use,
the power source must be compliant with the IEC60950 standard for a limited
power source. IEC60950 devices include:
•
An AC power module connected to the access point’s power connector
•
The following devices that provide Power-over-Ethernet (PoE):
– An IEEE 802.3af compliant power source
– A compliant Cisco inline power switch
– A Cisco power injector with a compliant AC power module
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
15
Caution
If the access point receives power through PoE, the output
current of the PSE cannot exceed 400 mA or 154000/Vport,
whichever is smaller. The power source must comply with
IEC60950. IEEE 802.3af compliant PSEs are compliant with
IEC60950.
When power is supplied to the access point, a routine power-up sequence
begins which you can monitor by observing the access point status LED.
During the power up sequence the LED displays a series of colors. When the
power up sequence is complete, the LED displays a light green color to
indicate that it is ready for operation. When a client associates to the access
point, the status LED changes to blue. The LED displays amber to indicate a
problem, such as when the access point is unable to verify that the PSE is
supplying sufficient power. See the “Configuring Power” section on page 17.
Obtaining an IP Address
Your access point needs an IP address to operate. The access point is no
longer shipped with a default IP address. It obtains an IP address from your
network’s DHCP server when you connect the access point to your network.
If your network does not have a DHCP server, the access point continues to
request an IP address until you assign it one. Therefore, you must configure
16
78-xxxxx-0x
the IP address by opening the command line interface (CLI) from a terminal
session established through the access point’s console port. See the
“Assigning an IP Address Using the CLI” section on page 17.
You must know your access point’s IP address before you can use the
web-based management GUI. If your access point obtained its IP address
from your network’s DHCP server, you or your network administrator can
find it by querying the DHCP server using the access point’s MAC address.
You can also find the access point’s IP address using Cisco’s IP Setup Utility
You can download IPSU from Cisco.com.
Assigning an IP Address Using the CLI
When you connect the access point to the wired LAN, the access point links
to the network using a bridge virtual interface (BVI) that it creates
automatically. Instead of tracking separate IP addresses for the access point’s
Ethernet and radio ports, the network uses the BVI.
To access the CLI, you can connect a PC to the console port using a DB-9 to
RJ-45 serial cable (AIR-CONCAB1200).
Note
Browse to http://www.cisco.com/go/marketplace to order the cable.
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
17
Set up a terminal emulator on your PC to communicate with the access point.
Use the following settings for the terminal emulator connection: 9600 baud,
8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.
When you assign an IP address to the access point using the CLI, you must
assign the address to the BVI. Beginning in a privileged EXEC mode, follow
these steps to assign an IP address to the access point’s BVI:
Command

Configuring Power
After connecting the access point to a power source, its status LED might be
amber, which can indicate that the access point is unable to verify that the
PSE is supplying sufficient power. In such cases, you will need to configure
settings on the access point or the switch to identify your power source.
Identify your power source and switch condition and then make sure that your
devices are configured as indicated in the table on page 19.

78-xxxxx-0x
Aironet Extensions
By default, the access point uses Cisco Aironet 802.11 extensions to
detect the capabilities of Cisco Aironet client devices and to support
features that require specific interaction between the access point and
associated client devices. Aironet extensions must be enabled to support
features such as load balancing, Message Integrity Check (MIC),
Temporal Key Integrity Check (TKIP), Repeater Mode, and World
Mode.
Disabling Aironet Extensions disables the features mentioned above, but
it sometimes improves the ability of non-Cisco client devices to
associate to the access point.
Configuring Security Settings
After you assign basic settings to your access point, you must configure
security settings to prevent unauthorized access to your network. Because it
is a radio device, the access point can communicate beyond the physical
boundaries of your work site.
Just as you use the Express Setup page to assign basic settings, you can use
the Express Security page to create unique SSIDs and assign one of four
security types to them. This illustration shows the Express Security page.
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
31
32
78-xxxxx-0x
Understanding Express Security Settings
When the access point configuration is set to factory defaults, the first SSID
that you create by using the Express Security page overwrites the default
SSID, which has no security settings. The SSIDs that you create appear in the
SSID table at the bottom of the page. You can create up to 16 SSIDs on the
access point.
If you use VLANs on your wireless LAN and assign SSIDs to VLANs, you
can create multiple SSIDs by using any of the four security settings on the
Express Security page. However, if you do not use VLANs on your wireless
LAN, the security options that you can assign to SSIDs are limited because
on the Express Security page encryption settings and authentication types are
linked. Without VLANs, encryption settings (WEP and ciphers) apply to an
interface, such as the radio, and you cannot use more than one encryption
setting on an interface. For example, when you create an SSID with static
WEP with VLANs disabled, you cannot create additional SSIDs with WPA
authentication because they use different encryption settings. If you find that
the security setting for an SSID conflicts with another SSID, you can delete
one or more SSIDs to eliminate the conflict.
If any VLANs are defined on the access point, the trunk port on the switch
must be limited to allow only the VLANs defined on the access point.
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
33
Express Security Limitations
Because the Express Security page is designed for simple configuration of
basic security, the options available are a subset of the access point security
capabilities. Keep these limitations in mind when using the Express Security
page:
•
You cannot edit SSIDs. However, you can delete SSIDs and re-create
them.
•
You cannot assign SSIDs to specific radio interfaces. The SSIDs that you
create are enabled on all radio interfaces. To assign SSIDs to specific
radio interfaces, choose Security > SSID Manager.
•
You cannot configure multiple authentication servers. To configure
multiple authentication servers, click Security > Server Manager.
•
You cannot configure multiple WEP keys. To configure multiple WEP
keys, click Security > Encryption Manager.
•
You cannot assign an SSID to a VLAN that is already configured on the
access point. To assign an SSID to an existing VLAN, choose Security
> SSID Manager.
•
You cannot configure combinations of authentication types on the same
SSID (such as MAC address authentication and EAP authentication). To
configure combinations of authentication types, choose Security >
SSID Manager.
34
78-xxxxx-0x
The Express Setup screen sections and configurable settings are identified
and briefly described below.
SSID Configuration
SSID
The SSID is a unique identifier that clients use to associate with the
access point. The SSID helps client devices distinguish between multiple
wireless networks in the same vicinity. The SSID can be any
alphanumeric, case-sensitive entry from 2 to 32 characters.
Default: No SSID assigned
Note
These characters are not allowed: ?, “, $, [, \, ], and +. In
addition, these characters cannot be the first character:
!, #, and ;.

Security
This setting identifies the security settings available on the Express
Security Setup page.
Options: No Security, Static WEP Key, EAP Authentication, WPA
Default: No Security
Option
Description
No Security
The least secure option. Use this option only for
SSIDs used in a public space, and assign it to a
VLAN that restricts access to your network.
Static WEP Key
More secure than no security. However, static WEP
keys are vulnerable to attack.
There are two different lengths for WEP keys:
40-bit and 128-bit (hexadecimal or ASCII
characters. Cisco access points use hexadecimal
characters. Client adapters may use either,
depending on how the vendor chooses to configure
them.
Quick Start Guide Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point
37
Option
Description
EAP
Authentication
Enables 802.1x authentication. Requires an IP
address and shared secret from an authentication
server on your network (server authentication port
1645). You do not need to enter a WEP key.
WPA and WPA2
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) permits wireless
access to users authenticated against a database
through the services of an authentication server,
and encrypts their IP traffic with stronger
algorithms than those used in WEP. As with EAP
authentication, you must enter the IP address and
shared secret for an authentication server on your
network (server authentication port 1645).

Checking Basic Settings
Mismatched basic settings are the most common causes of lost connectivity
with wireless clients. If the access point does not communicate with client
devices, check the following areas.
SSID
Wireless clients attempting to associate with the access point must use the
same SSID as the access point. If a client device SSID does not match the
SSID of an access point in radio range, the client device will not associate.
WEP Keys
The WEP keys that you use to transmit data must be set up exactly the same
on your access point and any wireless devices with which it associates. For
example, if you set WEP Key 3 on your client adapter to 0987654321 and

select it as the transmit key, you must also set the same value for WEP Key 3
on the access point. However, the access point does not need to use WEP Key
3 as the transmit key.
Refer to the Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet
Access Points for instructions on setting the access point WEP keys.
Security Settings
Wireless devices attempting to authenticate with your access point must
support the same security options configured on the access point, such as
EAP or LEAP, MAC address authentication, Message Integrity Check (MIC)
WEP key hashing, and 802.1X protocol versions.
If a wireless client cannot authenticate with your access point, contact the
system administrator for proper security settings in the client adapter and for
the client adapter driver and firmware versions that are compatible with the
access point settings.
Resetting to Default Configuration
If you forget your 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 to reset the configuration.
