OL-7694-01
Important Notes
– The wired equivalent privacy (WEP) keys of the access points with which your client adapter
will communicate, if your wireless network uses static WEP for security
– The username and password for your network account
– Protected access credentials (PAC) file if your wireless network uses EAP-FAST authentication
with manual PAC provisioning
Important Notes
Customized Installation Images (Notice to IT Professionals)
Caution
Use caution when bundling the client adapter software into a customized installation image. If the
registry settings are modified, the software may not install and uninstall properly.
Client Adapter Software Compatibility
Caution
Cisco Aironet CB21AG and PI21AG client adapter software is incompatible with other Cisco Aironet
client adapter software. The Aironet Desktop Utility (ADU) must be used with CB21AG and PI21AG
cards, and the Aironet Client Utility (ACU) must be used with all other Cisco Aironet client adapters.
Enabling CCKM Fast Secure Roaming
If you want to enable CCKM on the client adapter, you must choose the WPA/WPA2/CCKM security
option, regardless of whether you want the adapter to use WPA or WPA2. The configuration of the access
point to which your client adapter associates determines whether CCKM will be used with 802.1x, WPA,
or WPA2.
Access Point Setting for LEAP or EAP-FAST Authentication
Access points must be set for both Network-EAP and open authentication in order to associate to
CB21AG and PI21AG client adapters running LEAP with WPA/WPA2/CCKM or EAP-FAST.
EAP-FAST Fails When Access Point Configured as Local RADIUS Server
The client adapter fails to authenticate using EAP-FAST when the access point is running Cisco IOS
Release 12.3(2)JA2 and is configured as a local RADIUS server. The following message appears:
“Unable to EAP-FAST authenticate the wireless user in the specified amount of time. Network
infrastructure might be down.”

Important Notes
GINA Error on Bootup
If your computer ever experiences a GINA error on bootup, boot to the safe mode command prompt.
Then copy the msgina.dll file in the WinNT\System32 directory (Windows 2000) or Windows\System32
directory (Windows XP) over to a file named cscogina.dll. The copy command enables you to copy a
source file (msgina.dll) to a destination file (cscogina.dll) within the same directory.
Reboot Required When Uninstalling ACU and ADU
Caution
When you uninstall ACU and ADU, make sure you reboot your computer when prompted. Otherwise,
the system may be rendered unable to boot, displaying the message “The Logon User Interface DLL
cswGina.dll failed to load. Contact your system administrator to replace the DLL or restore the original
DLL.”
Uninstalling Software Components
All profiles and stored PAC files are deleted if you use the Uninstall the previous installation option
on the Previous Installation Detected Install Wizard window to uninstall the client adapter software.
Cisco recommends that you use the Profile Manager’s export feature to save your profiles before
uninstalling the software.
Profiles for PC-Cardbus Cards
The profiles for PC-Cardbus cards are tied to the slot in which the card is inserted. Therefore, you must
always insert your PC-Cardbus card into the same slot, create profiles for both slots, or export the
profiles for one slot and import them for the other slot.
Auto Profile Selection Enables Scan of All Wireless Modes
When you enable auto profile selection, the client adapter scans all wireless modes (5 GHz, 54 Mbps;
2.4 GHz, 11 Mbps; and 2.4 GHz, 54 Mbps) for an available network. The client ignores the selected
profile’s wireless mode setting, which was configured on the ADU Profile Management (Advanced)
window. Using this method, the client does not need to drop the current connection nor change the
current profile while looking for networks in other profiles.
ASTU Exit Option
The Exit option on the Aironet System Tray Utility (ASTU) pop-up menu closes both ASTU and ADU.

OL-7694-01
New and Changed Information
Windows Wireless Network Connection Icon Shows Unavailable Connection
(Windows XP Only)
If your computer is running Windows XP and you configured your client adapter using ADU, the
Windows Wireless Network Connection icon in the Windows system tray may be marked with a red X
and show an unavailable connection even though a wireless connection exists. This condition is caused
by a conflict between ADU and Windows XP’s wireless network settings. Simply ignore the Windows
icon and use the ASTU icon to check the status of your client adapter’s wireless connection.
Supporting Documentation
The Cisco Aironet 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Client Adapters (CB21AG and PI21AG) Installation and
Configuration Guide (part number OL-4211-03) pertains specifically to CB21AG and PI21AG client
adapters. If you are using a Cisco Aironet 340, 350, or CB20A client adapter, refer to the Installation
and Configuration Guide for that client adapter and your computer’s operating system.
New and Changed Information
Signal Strength and Quality Values Can Be Shown in %
The Signal Strength Display Units parameter, which is available in ADU 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2, has been
added to the Display Settings window in ADU 2.1. In addition, a Display in Percent check box has been
added to the Associated AP Status tab of site survey utility 1.1. Both parameters enable you to display
signal strength values either as a percentage (%) or in decibels with respect to milliwatts (dBm)/decibels
(dB) and signal quality values as a percentage.

Open Install Wizard Caveats
The following caveat is not resolved in CB21AG and PI21AG client adapter Install Wizard 2.1.
•
CSCeh25691—Error may occur during upgrade of client adapter software
The following message may appear when you upgrade from an earlier version of the Install Wizard:
“The installer has detected that this is a major upgrade. To assure that there are no incompatibilities, the
previous install needs to be deleted. Do you wish to continue?” If you click Yes, you are asked if you
want to completely remove the selected application and all of its features. If you click Cancel and then
choose to update the previous installation, the following error messages appear: “Feature transfer error”
and “Unknown error.” To work around this problem, uninstall the client adapter software and then
reinstall it.
Open Driver Caveats
The following caveats are not resolved in CB21AG and PI21AG client adapter driver 2.1.
•
CSCed40520—Up to 5-minute delay for initial boot
Some computers may experience up to a 5-minute delay during the first boot after installation.
Subsequent boots are normal.

OL-7694-01
Caveats
•
CSCee89506—Driver fails to install when using install disk on Windows 2000
When you create a driver installation disk (on a floppy or by storing the files in a folder) using the
Install Wizard on a computer running Windows 2000, the driver may fail to install. Specifically,
when you install the driver via Windows Device Manager > Driver > Properties > Driver Update
Driver, Windows indicates that it has finished installing the driver software. However, the Windows
Network and Dial-up Connections window shows the following message: “An unexpected error
occurred.” Also, after you reboot the computer, the Windows Device Manager shows an incomplete
installation of the driver software.
•
CSCef74909—IPX auto frame detection may not work correctly
When using Novell IPX client software, the client adapter may not allow proper detection of the IPX
frame type. As a result, the Novell IPX stack is unable to log into the Novell server. The IPX stack RIP
requester stops trying after 2.5 seconds, which is the default value. To work around this problem,
you can change the timeout value in the registry at the following location:
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NwlnkIpx\Parameters
The parameter is a REG_DWORD named RipCount. Increase the value to 20 seconds by entering
hex 28 (40 decimal). The units are in half seconds.
•
CSCeh03426—Client experiences throughput values below 1 Mbps
When 6 or 9 Mbps is enabled on the access point, the client adapter experiences throughput values
below 1 Mbps. To work around this problem, set the access point to its default data rate.
•
CSCeh45986—CB21AG in ACER Travelmate 529TX fails DHCP and LEAP
When the CB21AG client adapter is installed in an ACER Travelmate 529TX running Windows
2000 with Service Pack 4 and configured for static WEP with open authentication, it fails to obtain
an IP address through DHCP. In addition, the client adapter also fails to LEAP authenticate.
Open ADU Caveats
The following caveats are not resolved in ADU 2.1.
•
CSCeh19611—Incorrect EAP-FAST authentication failure error message
ADU may show the incorrect error message when EAP-FAST authentication fails. This occurs when
the access point returns an incorrect error code rather than timing out.
•
CSCeh59373—ADU unmanageable after first install
If ADU is unusable after you install the client adapter software, uninstall the client adapter software
and then reinstall it.
•
CSCeh66276—ADU does not prompt for PIN during PEAP (EAP-GTC) reauthentication
During PEAP (EAP-GTC) reauthentication, ADU does not prompt you to enter a PIN. When the
client roams out of the coverage area and then returns or its radio is disabled and then reenabled,
you are not prompted to re-enter your credentials. The client reconnects to the network and starts to
transfer data.

Troubleshooting
•
CSCeh66882—User is prompted for EAP-FAST PAC when it should be present
The following message may appear even if you have already specified a PAC to use with EAP-FAST:
“The current EAP-FAST profile does not have a PAC or the configured PAC does not match the
authentication server. Do you want to use another PAC found on your local system that matches the
authentication server without reconfiguring the current EAP-FAST profile?”
ADU matches the username and server name that it is trying to use with those in the PAC. If they do
not match or the configured PAC does not exist, ADU searches the private and global stores. If a
matching PAC is found, the user is prompted with the above message before the PAC is used. Click
Yes to attempt to authenticate using another PAC on your system without having to reconfigure your
profile.
•
CSCeh69073 and CSCeh72204—Auto-provisioned PAC does not support unicode usernames
An auto-provisioned PAC is not stored in a user’s private store if he or she logs into Windows with
a username containing two-byte characters. Automatic PAC provisioning succeeds, but the PAC
does not appear in the Select EAP-FAST PAC window of the private store and therefore cannot be
deleted. To work around this problem, go to the global store on your computer (C:\Document and
Settings\All Users\Application Data\Cisco\cscostore). You can see the PAC here and delete it if
desired.
•
CSCeh74184—Client fails to associate when configured for WPA/WPA2 passphrase and multiple
SSIDs
The client adapter fails to connect to the network when using a profile that is configured for
WPA/WPA2 passphrase and more than one SSID. To work around this problem, create separate
profiles for the desired SSIDs.

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products
Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them,
and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a
vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:
Tip
•
Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com
•
Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com
We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive
information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with
PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.
Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence
with PSIRT is the one that has the most recent creation date in this public key server list:
http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?search=psirt%40cisco.com&op=index&exact=on
In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:
•
1 877 228-7302

Note
Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting
a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support
Website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product
Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product
Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID
or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output.
Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted.
Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.
Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3
and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require
product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides
recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service
request is assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest
For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone.
(S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.)
Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business
operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447
For a complete list of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/contacts
Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You
and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
