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.

Overview

Cisco Aironet 1100 Series Access Point provides a secure, affordable, and easy-to-use wireless LAN solution that combines mobility and flexibility with the enterprise-class features required by networking professionals. With a management system based on Cisco IOS software, the 1100 series is a Wi-Fi certified, wireless LAN transceiver. The 1100 series access point uses a single mini-PCI radio

(IEEE 802.11b-compliant or IEEE 802.11g-compliant) that can be upgraded to future radio technologies.

The access point serves as the connection point between wireless and wired networks or as the center point of a stand-alone wireless network. In large installations, wireless users within radio range of an access point can roam throughout a facility while maintaining seamless, uninterrupted access to the network.

You can configure and monitor the access point using the command-line interface (CLI), the browser-based management system, or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

LEDs

Hardware Features

The three LEDs on the top of the access point report Ethernet activity, association status, and radio activity.

The Ethernet LED signals Ethernet traffic on the wired LAN, or Ethernet infrastructure. This LED is normally green when an Ethernet cable is connected, and blinks green when a packet is received or transmitted over the Ethernet infrastructure. The LED is off when the Ethernet cable is not connected.

The status LED signals operational status. Steady green indicates that the access point is associated with at least one wireless client. Blinking green indicates that the access point is operating normally but is not associated with any wireless devices.

The radio LED signals wireless traffic over the radio interface. The light is normally off, but it blinks green whenever a packet is received or transmitted over the access point radio.

Figure 1-2 shows the three status LEDs.

Chapter 1 Overview

Network Configuration Examples

Network Configuration Examples

This section describes the access point’s role in three common wireless network configurations. The access point’s default configuration is as a root unit connected to a wired LAN or as the central unit in an all-wireless network. The repeater role requires a specific configuration.

Root Unit on a Wired LAN

An access point connected directly to a wired LAN provides a connection point for wireless users. If more than one access point is connected to the LAN, users can roam from one area of a facility to another without losing their connection to the network. As users move out of range of one access point, they automatically connect to the network (associate) through another access point. The roaming process is seamless and transparent to the user.

Figure 1-3

shows access points acting as root units on a wired LAN.

Chapter 1 Overview

Network Configuration Examples

Repeater Unit that Extends Wireless Range

An access point can be configured as a stand-alone repeater to extend the range of your infrastructure or to overcome an obstacle that blocks radio communication. The repeater forwards traffic between wireless users and the wired LAN by sending packets to either another repeater or to an access point connected to the wired LAN. The data is sent through the route that provides the best performance for the client.

Figure 1-4 shows an access point acting as a repeater. Consult the Cisco IOS Software

Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points for instructions on setting up an access point as a repeater.

Note

Non-Cisco client devices might have difficulty communicating with repeater access points.

Central Unit in an All-Wireless Network

In an all-wireless network, an access point acts as a stand-alone root unit. The access point is not attached to a wired LAN; it functions as a hub linking all stations together. The access point serves as the focal point for communications, increasing the communication range of wireless users.

Figure 1-5

shows an access point in an all-wireless network.

Workgroup Bridge Configuration

When configured in the workgroup bridge mode, the unit provides a wireless connection for remote wired devices to a Cisco Aironet access point or to a Cisco Aironet bridge.

In

Figure 1-6

, the unit is configured in workgroup bridge mode and is associated to a Cisco Aironet access point as a wireless client device. This configuration allows the Ethernet-enabled devices to pass

Ethernet traffic to and from the main LAN using the workgroup bridge.

Figure 1-6 Workgroup Bridge Configuration 1

Access point

Workgroup bridge

In Figure 1-7 , the unit is configured in workgroup bridge mode and is associated to a Cisco Aironet root

bridge as a wireless bridge device. This configuration allows the Ethernet-enabled devices pass Ethernet traffic to and from the main LAN using the workgroup bridge. The main advantage of this configuration is that the wireless communication link can be over a longer distance than an access point supports.

Typically, an access point can communicate over approximately a 1-mile range; however, the bridge-to-bridge wireless link can communicate over approximately a 21-mile range.

Safety Information

Safety Information

Follow the guidelines in this section to ensure proper operation and safe use of the access point.

FCC Safety Compliance Statement

The FCC with its action in ET Docket 96-8 has adopted a safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC certified equipment. When used with approved

Cisco Aironet antennas, Cisco Aironet products meet the uncontrolled environmental limits found in

OET-65 and ANSI C95.1, 1991. Proper installation of this radio according to the instructions found in this manual will result in user exposure that is substantially below the FCC recommended limits.

General Safety Guidelines

Do not touch or move antenna(s) while the unit is transmitting or receiving.

Do not hold any component containing a radio so that the antenna is very close to or touching any exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting.

The use of wireless devices in hazardous locations is limited to the constraints posed by the local codes, the national codes, and the safety directors of such environments.

Warnings

Translated versions of the following safety warnings are provided in

Appendix A, “Translated Safety

Warnings.”

Warning In order to comply with FCC radio frequency (RF) exposure limits, dipole antennas should be located at a minimum of 7.9 inches (20 cm) or more from the body of all persons.

Warning Do not operate your wireless network device near unshielded blasting caps or in an explosive environment unless the device has been modified to be especially qualified for such use.

Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity.

Warning

Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source.

Warning

This product relies on the building's installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that a fuse or circuit breaker no larger than 120 VAC, 15A U.S. (240 VAC, 10A international) is used on the phase conductors (all current-carrying conductors).

Powering Up the Access Point

When power is applied to the access point, it begins a routine power-up sequence that you can monitor by observing the three LEDs on top of the access point. After you observe all three LEDs turning green to indicate the starting of the Cisco IOS operating system, the Status LED blinks green signifying that

Cisco IOS is operational. When in an operational status, the Ethernet LED is steady green when no traffic is being passed and dark during periods when traffic is being passed. The sequence takes about 1 minute to complete. Refer to

Chapter 8, “Troubleshooting,” for LED descriptions.

When the sequence is complete, you are ready to obtain the access point’s IP address and perform an initial configuration. Refer to

Chapter 3 Configuring the Access Point for the First Time

Before You Start

Before You Start

Before you install the access point, make sure you are using a computer connected to the same network as the access point, and obtain the following information:

The following information from your network system administrator:

A system name

The case-sensitive wireless service set identifier (SSID) for your radio network

If not connected to a DHCP server, a unique IP address for your access point (such as

172.17.255.115)

If the access point is not on the same subnet as your PC, a default gateway address and subnet mask

A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) community name and the SNMP file attribute (if SNMP is in use)

If you use IPSU to find or assign the access point IP address, the MAC address from the label on the bottom of the access point (such as 00164625854c)

Resetting the Access Point to Default Settings

If you need to start over during the initial setup process, you can reset the access point to factory default settings using the access point MODE button or your web-browser.

Using the Mode Button

To reset the access point to default values using the MODE button, follow these steps:

Step 1

Note

If the access point is configured with a static IP address, the IP address will not be changed.

Default IP Address Behavior

When you connect an 1100 series access point running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)JA or later with a default configuration to your LAN, the 1100 series access point makes several attempts to get an IP address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it assigns itself the IP address 10.0.0.1 for five minutes and does not become a mini-DHCP server. During this five-minute window, you can browse to the default IP address and configure a static address. If after five minutes the access point is not reconfigured, it discards the 10.0.0.1 address and reverts to requesting an address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it sends requests indefinitely. If you miss the five-minute window for browsing to the access point at 10.0.0.1, you can power-cycle the access point to repeat the process.

When you connect an 1100 series access point running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)JA or earlier with a default configuration to your LAN, the 1100 series access point makes several attempts to get an IP address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it assigns itself the IP address 10.0.0.1 and becomes a mini-DHCP server. In that capacity, the access point provides up to twenty IP addresses between 10.0.0.11 and 10.0.0.30 to the following devices:

An Ethernet-capable PC connected to its Ethernet port

Wireless client devices configured to use either no SSID or tsunami as the SSID, and with all security settings disabled

The mini-DHCP server feature is disabled automatically when you assign a static IP address to the access point.

Caution

When the access point is connected to your LAN, the access point mini-DHCP server provides an IP address to any DHCP requests it receives.

Obtaining and Assigning an IP Address

To browse to the access point’s Express Setup page, you must either obtain or assign the access point’s

IP address using one of the following methods:

Use default address 10.0.0.1 when you connect to the access point locally. For detailed instructions,

see the “Connecting to the Access Point Locally” section on page 3-4

.

Chapter 3 Configuring the Access Point for the First Time

Connecting to the Access Point Locally

Use a DHCP server (if available) to automatically assign an IP address. You can find out the

DHCP-assigned IP address using one of the following methods:

Provide your organization’s network administrator with your access point’s Media Access

Control (MAC) address. Your network administrator will query the DHCP server using the

MAC address to identify the IP address. The access point’s MAC address is on label attached to the bottom of the access point.

Use the CLI to determine the IP address of your access point (refer to the “Finding the IP

Address Using the CLI” section on page 3-13 .

Connecting to the Access Point Locally

If you need to configure the access point locally (without connecting the access point to a wired LAN), you can connect a PC to its Ethernet port using a Category 5 Ethernet cable. You can use a local connection to the Ethernet port much as you would use a serial port connection.

Note

You do not need a special crossover cable to connect your PC to the access point; you can use either a straight-through cable or a crossover cable.

Follow these steps to connect to the access point locally:

Step 6

If the access point is running Cisco IOS 12.3(2)JA or later, manually configure the PC you intend to use with an IP address from 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.10.

If the access point is running Cisco IOS 12.2(15)JA or earlier, ensure the PC you intend to use is configured to receive an IP address using DHCP or manually configure an IP address from 10.0.0.2 to

10.0.0.10.

Connect your PC to the access point using a Category 5 Ethernet cable. You can use either a crossover cable or a straight-through cable.

Power up the access point.

Follow the steps in the

“Assigning Basic Settings” section on page 3-5 . If you make a mistake and need

to start over, follow the steps in the

“Resetting the Access Point to Default Settings” section on page 3-2

.

After configuring the access point, remove the Ethernet cable from your PC and connect the access point to your wired LAN.

Note

When you connect your PC to the access point or reconnect your PC to the wired LAN, you might need to release and renew the IP address on the PC. On most PCs, you can perform a release and renew by rebooting your PC or by entering ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew commands in a command prompt window. Consult your PC operating instructions for detailed instructions.

Chapter 3 Configuring the Access Point for the First Time

Configuring Basic Security Settings

Enabling the Radio Interfaces

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)JA and later, the access point radios are disabled by default, and there is no default SSID. You must create an SSID and enable the radios before the access point will allow wireless associations from other devices. These changes to the default configuration improve the security of newly installed access points. Refer to the

“Configuring Basic Security Settings” section on page 3-9

for instructions on configuring the SSID.

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)JA or earlier, the access point radio is enabled by default, and the default

SSID is tsunami.

To enable the radio interfaces, follow these instructions:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Use your web-browser to access your access point.

When the Summary Status page displays, click Network Interfaces > Radio0-802.11B or

Step 5

Click Enable in the Enable Radio field.

Click Apply.

Configuring Basic 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 building.

Just as you use the Express Setup page to assign basic settings, you can use the Express Security Set-Up page (Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)JA and later) to create unique SSIDs and assign one of four security types to them. For detail security information, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for

Cisco Aironet Access Points.

Chapter 3 Configuring the Access Point for the First Time

Configuring Basic Security Settings

Understanding Express Security Settings

When the access point configuration is at factory defaults, the first SSID that you create by using the

Express Security page overwrites the default SSID (tsunami), 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.

Note

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)JA or later, there is no default SSID. You must configure an SSID before client devices can associate to the access point.

Using VLANs

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.

Express Security Types

Table 3-2

describes the four security types that you can assign to an SSID.

Table 3-2 Security Types on Express Security Setup Page

Security Type

No Security

Static WEP Key

Description

This is the least secure option. You should use this option only for SSIDs used in a public space and assign it to a VLAN that restricts access to your network.

Security Features Enabled

None.

This option is more secure than no security.

However, static WEP keys are vulnerable to attack. If you configure this setting, you should consider limiting association to the bridge based on MAC address (refer to the

Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide

for Cisco Aironet Access Points).

Mandatory WEP. Client devices cannot associate using this SSID without a WEP key that matches the bridge key.

Authentication

WPA

Security Types on Express Security Setup Page (continued)

Description

This option enables 802.1x authentication

(such as LEAP, PEAP, EAP-TLS,

EAP-GTC, EAP-SIM, and others) and requires you to enter the IP address and shared secret for an authentication server on your network (server authentication port

1645). Because 802.1x authentication provides dynamic encryption keys, you do not need to enter a WEP key.

Security Features Enabled

Mandatory 802.1x authentication.

Client devices that associate using this SSID must perform 802.1x authentication.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) permits wireless access to users authenticated against a database through the services of an authentication server, then 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).

Mandatory WPA authentication.

Client devices that associate using this SSID must be WPA-capable.

28

Express Security Limitations

Because the Express Security page is designed for simple configuration of basic security, the options available are a subset of the bridge security capabilities. Keep these limitations in mind when using the

Express Security page:

If the No VLAN option is selected, the static WEP key can be configured once. If you select Enable

VLAN, the static WEP key should be disabled.

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, use the Security SSID Manager page.

You cannot configure multiple authentication servers. To configure multiple authentication servers, use the Security Server Manager page.

You cannot configure multiple WEP keys. To configure multiple WEP keys, use the Security

Encryption Manager page.

You cannot assign an SSID to a VLAN that is already configured on the bridge. To assign an SSID to an existing VLAN, use the Security SSID Manager page.

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, use the

Security SSID Manager page.

Note

For detailed information about security and security settings, refer to the Cisco IOS Software

Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points.

Chapter 3 Configuring the Access Point for the First Time

Using the Express Security Page

Follow these steps to create an SSID using the Express Security page:

Finding the IP Address Using the CLI

Step 1

Type the SSID in the SSID entry field. The SSID can contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters.

Note

These characters are not allowed in the SSID: ", /, \, /, ], +, tab, and a trailing space character.

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

To broadcast the SSID in the bridge beacon, check the Broadcast SSID in Beacon check box. When you broadcast the SSID, devices that do not specify an SSID can associate to the bridge. This is a useful option for an SSID used by guests or by client devices in a public space. If you do not broadcast the

SSID, client devices cannot associate to the bridge unless their SSID matches this SSID. Only one SSID can be included in the bridge beacon.

(Optional) Check the Enable VLAN ID check box and enter a VLAN number (1 through 4095) to assign the SSID to a VLAN. You cannot assign an SSID to an existing VLAN.

(Optional) Check the Native VLAN check box to mark the VLAN as the native VLAN.

Select the security setting for the SSID. The settings are listed in order of robustness, from No Security to WPA, which is the most secure setting.

If you select Static WEP Key, choose the key number and encryption key size and enter the encryption key (10 hexadecimal characters for 40-bit keys or 26 hexadecimal characters for 128-bit keys).

If you select EAP Authentication or WPA, enter the IP address and shared secret for the authentication server on your network.

Note

If you do not use VLANs on your wireless LAN, the security options that you can assign to multiple SSIDs are limited. Refer to the Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco

Aironet Access Points for VLAN details.

Step 6

Click Apply. The SSID appears in the SSID table at the bottom of the page.

Finding the 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 find the IP address of your access point, you can use the Cisco IOS CLI show ip interface brief bvi1 command from the privileged EXEC mode. For additional information on the CLI, refer to the

“Using the Command-Line Interface” section on page 5-1

.

Using a Telnet Session to Access the CLI

Follow these steps to browse to access the CLI using a Telnet session. These steps are for a PC running

Microsoft Windows with a Telnet terminal application. Check your PC operating instructions for detailed instructions for your operating system.

Step 1

Step 2

Select Start > Programs > Accessories > Telnet.

If Telnet is not listed in your Accessories menu, select Start > Run, type Telnet in the entry field, and press Enter.

When the Telnet window displays, click Connect and select Remote System.

Note

In Windows 2000, the Telnet window does not contain drop-down menus. To start the Telnet session in Windows 2000, type open followed by the access point’s IP address.

Chapter 5 Using the Command-Line Interface

IOS Command Modes

IOS Command Modes

The Cisco IOS user interface is divided into many different modes. The commands available to you depend on which mode you are currently in. Enter a question mark (?) at the system prompt to obtain a list of commands available for each command mode.

When you start a session on the access point, you begin in user mode, often called user EXEC mode.

Only a limited subset of the commands are available in user EXEC mode. For example, most of the user

EXEC commands are one-time commands, such as show commands, which show the current configuration status, and clear commands, which clear counters or interfaces. The user EXEC commands are not saved when the access point reboots.

To have access to all commands, you must enter privileged EXEC mode. Normally, you must enter a password to enter privileged EXEC mode. From this mode, you must enter privileged EXEC mode before you can enter the global configuration mode.

Using the configuration modes (global, interface, and line), you can make changes to the running configuration. If you save the configuration, these commands are stored and used when the access point reboots. To access the various configuration modes, you must start at global configuration mode. From global configuration mode, you can enter interface configuration mode and line configuration mode.

Table 5-1

describes the main command modes, how to access each one, the prompt you see in that mode, and how to exit the mode. The examples in the table use the host name ap.

Abbreviating Commands

You have to enter only enough characters for the access point to recognize the command as unique. This example shows how to enter the show configuration privileged EXEC command: ap# show conf

Using no and default Forms of Commands

Most configuration commands also have a no form. In general, use the no form to disable a feature or function or reverse the action of a command. For example, the no shutdown interface configuration command reverses the shutdown of an interface. Use the command without the keyword no to re-enable a disabled feature or to enable a feature that is disabled by default.

Understanding CLI Messages

Configuration commands can also have a default form. The default form of a command returns the command setting to its default. Most commands are disabled by default, so the default form is the same as the no form. However, some commands are enabled by default and have variables set to certain default values. In these cases, the default command enables the command and sets variables to their default values.

Searching and Filtering Output of show and more Commands

In this example, the access-list global configuration command entry extends beyond one line. When the cursor first reaches the end of the line, the line is shifted ten spaces to the left and redisplayed. The dollar sign ($) shows that the line has been scrolled to the left. Each time the cursor reaches the end of the line, the line is again shifted ten spaces to the left. ap(config)# access-list 101 permit tcp 131.108.2.5 255.255.255.0 131.108.1 ap(config)# $ 101 permit tcp 131.108.2.5 255.255.255.0 131.108.1.20 255.25 ap(config)# $t tcp 131.108.2.5 255.255.255.0 131.108.1.20 255.255.255.0 eq ap(config)# $108.2.5 255.255.255.0 131.108.1.20 255.255.255.0 eq 45

After you complete the entry, press Ctrl-A to check the complete syntax before pressing the Return key to execute the command. The dollar sign ($) appears at the end of the line to show that the line has been scrolled to the right: ap(config)# access-list 101 permit tcp 131.108.2.5 255.255.255.0 131.108.1$

The software assumes you have a terminal screen that is 80 columns wide. If you have a width other than that, use the terminal width privileged EXEC command to set the width of your terminal.

Use line wrapping with the command history feature to recall and modify previous complex command entries. For information about recalling previous command entries, see the

“Editing Commands through

Keystrokes” section on page 5-6 .

Searching and Filtering Output of show and more Commands

You can search and filter the output for show and more commands. This is useful when you need to sort through large amounts of output or if you want to exclude output that you do not need to see.

To use this functionality, enter a show or more command followed by the pipe character (|), one of the keywords begin, include, or exclude, and an expression that you want to search for or filter out:

command | {begin | include | exclude} regular-expression

Expressions are case sensitive. For example, if you enter | exclude output, the lines that contain output are not displayed, but the lines that contain Output are displayed.

This example shows how to include in the output display only lines where the expression protocol appears: ap# show interfaces | include protocol

Vlan1 is up, line protocol is up

Vlan10 is up, line protocol is down

GigabitEthernet0/1 is up, line protocol is down

GigabitEthernet0/2 is up, line protocol is up

Chapter 8 Troubleshooting

Checking Basic Settings

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.

Default IP Address Behavior

When you connect an 1100 series access point running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)JA or later with a default configuration to your LAN, the 1100 series access point makes several attempts to get an IP address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it assigns itself the IP address 10.0.0.1 for five minutes and does not become a mini-DHCP server. During this five-minute window, you can browse to the default IP address and configure a static address. If after five minutes the access point is not reconfigured, it discards the 10.0.0.1 address and reverts to requesting an address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it sends requests indefinitely. If you miss the five-minute window for browsing to the access point at 10.0.0.1, you can power-cycle the access point to repeat the process.

When you connect an 1100 series access point running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)JA or earlier with a default configuration to your LAN, the 1100 series access point makes several attempts to get an IP address from the DHCP server. If it does not receive an address, it assigns itself the IP address 10.0.0.1 and becomes a mini-DHCP server. In that capacity, the access point provides up to twenty IP addresses between 10.0.0.11 and 10.0.0.30 to the following devices:

An Ethernet-capable PC connected to its Ethernet port

Wireless client devices configured to use either no SSID or tsunami as the SSID, and with all security settings disabled

The mini-DHCP server feature is disabled automatically when you assign a static IP address to the access point.

Caution

When the access point is connected to your LAN, the access point mini-DHCP server provides an IP address to any DHCP requests it receives.

Default SSID and Radio Behavior

In Cisco IOS Relese 12.3(2)JA2 and earlier, the access point radio is enabled by default and the default

SSID is tsunami.

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)JA and later, the access point radio is disabled by default, and there is no default SSID. You must create an SSID and enable the radio before the access point will allow wireless associations from other devices. These changes to the default configuration improve the security of newly installed access points. Refer to the

“Configuring Basic Security Settings” section on page 3-9 for

instructions on configuring the SSID and the

“Enabling the Radio Interfaces” section on page 8-5

for instructions on enabling the radio interface.

Chapter 8 Troubleshooting

Checking Basic Settings

Enabling the Radio Interfaces

To enable the radio interface, follow these instructions:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Use your web-browser to access your access point.

When the Summary Status page displays, click Network Interfaces > Radio0-802.11B or

Radio0-802.11G and the radio status page displays.

Click Settings and the radio settings page displays.

Click Enable in the Enable Radio field.

Click Apply.

SSID

Wireless clients attempting to associate with the access point must use the same SSID as the access point.

If a client device’s SSID does not match the SSID of an access point in radio range, the client device will not associate. The access point default SSID is tsunami.

Note

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)JA, there is no default SSID. You must configure an SSID before client devices can associate to the access point.

WEP Keys

The WEP key 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 WEP Key 3 on the access point to exactly the same value. The access point does not need to use Key 3 as its transmit key, however.

Refer to Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points for instructions on setting the access point’s WEP keys.

Security Settings

Wireless clients attempting to authenticate with your access point must support the same security options configured in 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 is unable to 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.

Note

The access point MAC address that appears on the Status page in the Aironet Client Utility (ACU) is the

MAC address for the access point radio. The MAC address for the access point Ethernet port is printed on the label on the back of the access point.

Running the Carrier Busy Test

Running the Carrier Busy Test

You can use the carrier busy test to find the least congested channel for the radio interface (802.11b).

You should typically run the test several times to obtain the best results and to avoid temporary activity spikes.

Note

The carrier busy test is primarily used for a single access point or a bridge environment. For sites with multiple access points, a site survey is typically performed to determine the best operating locations and operating frequencies for the access points.

Note

All associated clients on the selected radio will be disassociated during the 6 to 8 seconds needed for the carrier busy test.

Perform these steps to activate the carrier busy test:

Step 1

Use your web browser to open the access point interface.
