THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

This section provides instructions for changing the 1000 series lightweight access point output power.
The output power on the 1000 series lightweight access points can be changed only using a 2600 series
or 4400 series controller, the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or a Cisco
Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
Note
Regulatory domains are set at the factory and cannot be changed by the user.
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point.
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations or special country
restrictions using a controller running software release 4.1.x or later:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or later.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.
Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.

Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1130AG series access point output power to comply
with the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the “Special
Country Restrictions” section on page 3-5). Follow these instructions to change the output power
settings using a controller and your browser:
Note
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
Note
Regulatory domains are set at the factory and cannot be changed by the user.
Caution
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be password
protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the access points can be changed only using a Cisco wireless LAN controller (2600
series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or using Cisco
Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.

Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless > 802.11a Radios or 802.11b/g Radios and a list of associated access points displays.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point from the displayed list and click Configure. The radio settings page
displays.
Step 6
Scroll down to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.
Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 8).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 8),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
Table 3-5 lists the controller power settings and the corresponding output power levels for these two
examples:
•
2.4 GHz (802.11b/g) operation:
– American regulatory domain and channel 2 using 11 Mbps data rates
•

Changing Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1140 series access point output power to comply with
the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the “Special
Country Restrictions” section on page 4-18). Follow these instructions to change the output power
settings using a controller and your browser:
Note
Caution
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be
password-protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the access points can be changed only using a Cisco wireless LAN controller
(2600 series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or using
Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.

Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless > 802.11a/n Radios or 802.11b/g/n Radios and a list of associated access points
appears.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point and click Configure. The radio settings page appears.
Step 6
Scroll down to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.
Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 8).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 8),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
Table 16 lists the controller power settings and the corresponding output power levels for these two
examples:
•
2.4 GHz ) operation in EMEA (–E) regulatory domain:
– Channel 2 using 11-Mbps data rates with 6-dBi external antenna
•
5 GHz (802.11a) operation:
– Channel 52 with 6-dBi external antenna

Maximum Power Levels and Antenna Gains
IEEE 802.11g (2.4-GHz Band)
An improper combination of power level and antenna gain can result in equivalent isotropic radiated
power (EIRP) above the amount allowed per regulatory domain. Table 5-3 indicates the maximum
power levels and antenna gains allowed for each IEEE 802.11g regulatory domain.

Note
.
Table 5-7
To avoid exceeding maximum conducted power levels in the EMEA (-E) and Israel (–I) regulatory
domains when using an external antenna, you must manually set the access point output power level as
shown in Table 5-7. The Israel (–I) regulator domain does not support channels 100 to 140.
For the latest EMEA (-E) regulatory domain information, refer to the EU Directive 1999/5/EC

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Points
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
REVIEW DRAFT—CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1200 series access point output power to comply with
the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the“Maximum
Power Levels in Some Regulatory Domains with External Antennas” section on page 5-8 and the
“Special Country Restrictions” section on page 5-9). Follow these instructions to change the output
power settings using a controller and your browser:
Note
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
Note
Regulatory domains are set at the factory and cannot be changed by the user.
Caution
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be password
protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the access points can be changed only using a Cisco wireless LAN controller (2600
series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or using Cisco
Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.
Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless > 802.11a Radios or 802.11b/g Radios and a list of associated access points appears.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point from the displayed list and click Configure. The radio settings page
appears.
Step 6
Scroll down to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.

Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 8).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 8),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
Table 5-10 lists the controller power settings and the corresponding output power levels for these two
examples:
•
2.4-GHz (802.11b/g) operation:
– (–E) regulatory domain and channel 2 using 11-Mbps data rates
– 6-dBi external antenna
•
5-GHz (802.11a) operation:
– (–E) regulatory domain and channel 52 using 36-Mbps data rates
– RM22A with 6-dBi external antenna

1. The Tx Power Level setting of 1 represents the maximum conducted power setting for the access point. Each
subsequent controller power level (such as 2, 3, 4, etc.) represents approximately a 3-dBm reduction in transmit
power from the previous power level.
2. The maximum output power levels obtained from Table 5-3 and the values converted using Table 5-9.
3. The maximum output power level of 17 dBi obtained from Table 5-6.
•
For 802.11b (CCK) and 802.11g (OFDM) data rates (see Table 5-3 and Table 5-10), the manual
controller Tx Power Level setting is 3.
•
For only 802.11b (CCK) data rates (see Table 5-3 and Table 5-10), the manual controller Tx Power
Level setting is 2.
•
For 802.11a (see Table 5-7 and Table 5-10), the manual controller Tx Power Level setting is 2.
Step 8
Click Apply.
Step 9
Close your Internet browser.
For additional configuration information, refer to the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration
Guide.

Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1240 series access point output power to comply with
the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the “Special
Country Restrictions” section on page 6-7). Follow these instructions to change the output power
settings using a controller and your browser:
Note
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
Note
Regulatory domains are set at the factory and cannot be changed by the user.
Caution
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be
password-protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the access points can be changed only using a Cisco controllers (such as the 2600
series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or using Cisco
Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.

Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
REVIEW DRAFT—CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.
Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless > 802.11a Radios or 802.11b/g Radios and a list of associated access points displays.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point and click Configure. The radio settings page appears.
Step 6
Scroll down to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.
Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 8).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 8),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
Table 6-7 lists the controller power settings and the corresponding output power levels for these two
examples:
•
2.4 GHz (802.11b/g) operation in –E regulatory domain:
– Channel 2 using 11-Mbps data rates with 6-dBi external antenna
•
5 GHz (802.11a) operation:
– Channel 52 with 6-dBi external antenna

Channels and Maximum Power Levels
Note
The access point has been designed to operate with the antennas listed in the product hardware
installation guide and having a maximum gain of 10 dBi for 2.4 GHz and 6 dBi for 5 GHz. Antennas not
included in this list or having a higher gain are strictly prohibited for use with the access point. The
required antenna impedance is 50 ohms.
Note
To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be chosen so
that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than required for successful
communication.
2.4 GHz Band (IEEE 802.11n Version 2.0)
An improper combination of power level and antenna gain can result in equivalent isotropic radiated
power (EIRP) above the amount allowed per regulatory domain. Table 7-1 indicates the channel
identifiers, channel center frequencies, and maximum power levels for each channel allowed by the
–A regulatory domain for a 2.4-GHz radio.

installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be
password-protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the access points can be changed only using a Cisco wireless LAN controller
(2600 series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or using
Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.

Maximum Power Levels Allowed in Some Regulatory Domains
An improper combination of power level and antenna gain can result in equivalent isotropic radiated power
(EIRP) above the amount allowed per regulatory domain. Table 9-4 indicates the maximum power levels
allowed with an 8 dBi external antenna in the –A and –N regulatory domains.
Caution
To avoid exceeding maximum conducted power levels in the –A , –N, and –E regulatory domains when
using an 8 dBi antennas, you must manually set the access point output power level to not exceed the
value shown in Table 9-4 and Table 9-5.
Note
In Table 9-4 and Table 9-5, the operating data rates (in Mbps) are shown in the CCK and OFDM table
cells. For example: OFDM 9-24 indicates 9 to 24Mbps data rates and All OFDM indicates 6 to 54 Mbps
data rates.

Cisco Aironet 1500 Series Mesh Access Points
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
REVIEW DRAFT—CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1500 series access point output power to comply with
the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the “Antenna
Settings” section on page 9-5). Follow these instructions to change the output power settings using a
controller and your browser:
Note
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
Note
Regulatory domains are set at the factory and cannot be changed by the user.
Caution
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be
password-protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the 1500 series access points can be changed only by using a Cisco wireless LAN
controller (2600 series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or
using Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to to configure
your access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the 1500 series access point’s output power to meet local regulations using
a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.
Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless > 802.11a Radios or 802.11b/g Radios and a list of associated access points appears.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point from the displayed list and click Configure. The the radio settings page
appears.
Step 6
Scroll down to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.

Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 5).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 5),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
Note
The access point supports only two output power levels for the 2.4-GHz radio and three output
power levels for the 5-GHz radio.
Note
Table 9-1 and Table 9-2 list the access point maximum output power levels supported for each
regulatory domain when the access point is shipped from the factory.
Table 9-7 lists the controller power settings and the corresponding output power levels for these two
examples:
•
2.4-GHz (802.11b/g) operation:
– American regulatory domain
– Channel 3 using 11-Mbps data rates
•
5-GHz (802.11a) operation:
– American regulatory domain
– Channel 149 using 36-Mbps data rates

Minimum 5-GHz Radio Power Levels
Table 10-8 lists the minimum power levels supported by the 5-GHz radio for the various channels and
regulatory domains.
Note
Table 10-8
When the minimum radio power level is reached with a controller power setting (1 to 5), changing the
controller power setting to a lower value does not result in a lower radio output power level. For
example, if the minimum radio power level corresponds to controller level 3, then levels 4 and 5 also
correspond to the same power level.

Cisco Aironet 1520 Series Mesh Access Points
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
REVIEW DRAFT—CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Changing the Lightweight Access Point Output Power
This section provides instructions for changing the 1520 series access point output power to comply with
the maximum power limits imposed by special regulatory and country restrictions (see the “Minimum
5-GHz Radio Power Levels” section on page 10-12). Follow these instructions to change the output
power settings using a controller and your browser:
Note
Caution
Administrator privileges may be required in order to change access point settings.
To meet regulatory restrictions, the access point and the external antenna must be professionally
installed. The network administration or other IT professional responsible for installing and configuring the
unit is a suitable professional installer. Following installation, access to the unit should be
password-protected by the network administrator to maintain regulatory compliance.
The output power on the 1520 series access points can be changed only by using a Cisco wireless LAN
controller (2600 series or 4400 series), the controllers on a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM), or
using Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).
Note
See the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Guide for more details on how to configure your
access point using the web-browser interface.
Follow these steps to change the 1520 series access point’s output power to meet local regulations using
a controller:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
Step 2
Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller’s IP address) in the browser address line
and press Enter. A user login screen appears.
Step 3
Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller’s summary page appears.
Note
The username and password are case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click Wireless and choose 802.11a/n or 802.11b/g/n under Access Points / Radios. A list of associated
access points appears.
Step 5
Choose the desired access point from the displayed list and click Configure from the drop down arrow.
The the radio configuration page appears.
Step 6
Scroll to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration
setting field.
Step 7
In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 5).
Based on the operating channel, the regulatory domain, and the controller power level setting (1 to 5),
the actual transmit power at the access point can be reduced to comply with special regulatory or country
restrictions.
