Need help with Cisco WAP Air-LAP1041N-A-K9 config

Postby cdw3423 » Wed Sep 19, 2012 1:50 pm

We are replacing some old temperamental WAPs in our stake and were sent Cisco Air-LAP1041N-A-K9 WAPs. From what I can see from the documentation I found on the Cisco site, these are mainly used with a "Cisco wireless LAN controller". As near as I know we don't have one of those and don't need one when we only need a single WAP on the network. I'm at a loss as to how to configure this thing. Do I need a Cisco Console cable? I did get one just in case.

Is there any simple step by step instructions to configure the password and other security settings I need to use this thing as a standalone WAP?

CHQ takes care of the complex stuff. You can read the install instructions here.

Thanks for the link. The timing is just about perfect. One of the buildings we are putting these in just got the new firewall mentioned in that document and another one will get it later this week. Sounds like with that router installed, it will be easy to get going. In the buildings that will not be getting the new firewall may be a little more difficult but at least I have a phone number to call when we get there.

Thanks again.
