Cisco Aironet 1200 Access Point
Finding the Access Point's IP Address
You will first need to download the IP Setup Utility
- Step 1 Double-click the IPSU icon on your computer desktop to start the utility.
- Step 2 When the utility window opens, make sure the Get IP addr radio button in the Function box is selected.
- Step 3 Enter the access point's MAC address in the Device MAC ID field. The access point's MAC address is printed on the label on the bottom of the unit. It should contain six pairs of hexadecimal digits.
- Step 4 Click Get IP Address.
- Step 5 When the access point's IP address appears in the IP Address field, write it down.
Accessing the Access Point's Management Interface
- Step 1 Make sure your computer is either- connected to the access point's console port with an Ethernet cable OR connected to any Ethernet port behind the firewall (such as hub in clerk's office or open port on firewall).
- Step 2 Enter the access point's IP address in your internet browser's address bar and press Enter.
- The Ethernet indicator signals traffic on the wired LAN, or Ethernet infrastructure. This indicator blinks green when a packet is received or transmitted over the Ethernet infrastructure.
- The status indicator signals operational status. Blinking green indicates that the access point is operating normally but is not associated with any wireless devices. Steady green indicates that the access point is associated with a wireless client.
- For repeater access points, blinking 50% on, 50% off indicates the repeater is not associated with the root access point; blinking 7/8 on, 1/8 off indicates that the repeater is associated with the root access point but no client devices are associated with the repeater; steady green indicates that the repeater is associated with the root access point and client devices are associated with the repeater.
- The radio indicator blinks green to indicate radio traffic activity. The light is normally off, but it blinks green whenever a packet is received or transmitted over one of the access point radios.
