Cisco Wireless :: 1242AG / Maximum Associations In Aironet Access Point?
Feb 12, 2011
I have a very special application where I need to connect as much as possible end devices to a single access point.The required data throughput per end device is very small - around 1 to 5 kbit/sec.I am using the Access Point Aironet 1242AG.
1. What is the maximum number of simultaneous users that can be connected to a Cisco Access point, is it 255 or can be more ?
2. If I define multiple SSID’s, what if the total numbers of users that can be connected to a Cisco Access point
3. I there a simulator tool that can be used to simulate multiple wireless connections to an AP
4. Have anyone tested so many users connected to 1 Access point ?
I have 2 cisco 1242Ag APs in one building and 7 in other building installed in my infrastructure. All these 9 APs are connected to WLC and all of them are added to default ap group to broadcast all the ssid... But 7 in the second bulding are working properly, but the 2 in the other building are not broadcasting the ssids. I checked the configuration in both APs and WLC as well... All the 9 APs are having the same configuration.
We successfully use this oid on our Aironet 1240 series AP's to list the dot11 associations to the AP:184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.218.104.22.168.1.18 (cDot11ClientSubIfIndex).However, that oid does not work on our Aironet 1140 series AP's. Any equivalent oid?
My question is about the maximum possible transmitting power in a Cisco 1242AG-E-K9.I did an update of my AP on a new ios version and since then, the maximum power for me is limited to 17 dbm. I check this within the console and the "show controllers dot11radio0 | include Power:" command. I thought that I had 20dbm before the update, but unfortunately I can't proof this by myself because I have no AP left with the old firmware.
Is it possible that the upgrade did this? I read about the regulatory domains for the transmitting power. I live in Switzerland, so I thought I could use 100mW if I want to. I read it's not possible to use the 100mW at each speed but I think I should stull be able to select the 20dbm/100mW or am I missing something?
I have configued Cisco LAP 1242AG with statis IP.I have connected LAP to WLC.I am able to ping WLC management interface IP Address from LAP's console.LAP is failed to Join WLC with error "Could not resolve CISCO-SAPWAP-CONTROLLER"
I am in the process of moving our office and part of the task involves relocating our existing wireless access points. They are all 1242AG's running the c1240-k9w7-mx.124-10b.JDA3 IOS. I would like to change the security on the access points to WPA 2 but that selection is not available. I think upgrading the IOS will solve this problem but I am not sure. So I guess I have two questions:
1) Does this Cisco model support WPA 2 ? 2) If so what IOS do I need to load to make WPA 2 available?
I'm having a little issue with some Cisco Aironet1242ag WAP's. I receive a call at least twice a month stating that some of the WAP's are not giving out internet connection. What I always do is go to my patch panel and disconnect those WAP's not working and connect them back again so they can power cycle. These WAP's are connected to a Cisco3750g. Once the WAP's boot up, the users can connect to the WAP and connect to the internet.
I don't know if these WAP's are filling up with some information that causes the access points to not connect to the WAN.
According to the documentation, I'm supposed to be hitting the Esc key when I see the Loading "flash:/[imagename]" ####### ... line, but this doesn't seem to be working. I've tried hitting the Esc key a lot during those lines, holding it down, hitting it early, hitting it late, hitting it in the middle, and still no joy.
I'm trying to break into a handful of malfunctioning 1242AG APs to see if I can get them working, or if they're faulting hardware that's beyond repair. (So far they're all coming back with: no "IP_ADDR" variable set, so how to set that without breaking out of the boot cycle).
I am trying to find a way to login to our wirless access point. I have a Aironet 1130AG series wireless router. I have the ip address. It is a POE device so i dont have a power supply for this device. When it is on I can see the Wireless Network but the passcode has been lost and no one knows it. Is there a default IP address for this equipment? There is an Ethernet port for a console but without the power supply i cannot access it.
We are currently using several AP's in our organization. And in this one AP i want to give a user the power to change the password of the wireless network to prevent miss use. I was wondering if it was possible to create an account who only has the privilege to change the WPA key?? I want to prevent that he will accidently change other settings.
I am looking at outdoor access points, I want to stick with Cisco aironet, we currently have 6 of them that are 6 years old and running great, one has had a problem because of humidity, dried it out and relocated and we are good again.
I was looking at the Aironet 1310 Outdoor access point, but I can't find much information on it. I am looking to see how many SSIDs can be setup, we currently have 2 one private, and one public, this is done with VLANS. I am also looking at finding out about the power injector, it converts to coaxial cable, it has 2 RJ-45 and 2 Coaxial, does this mean if we get 2 access points, then I only need 1 power injector?
I'm working on setting up an Aironet 1040 Wireless Access Point for my company. It's my first time setting up something like this, and I've run into a bit of trouble.
I created my first SSID easily enough, following the manual and guides online. I set up VLAN 1 as my native VLAN and linked it to my SSID with the encryption and security that I was told to use and it works great. However, my boss asked me to set up a second connection as well for guests at the office, and this is where my trouble starts.
I created VLAN 2, and then another SSID which I linked here. I set up encryption and security the same way, and I can see the network when I open up my network and sharing manager. I can connect to the network as well, but I either get a spinning blue icon where my signal strength indicator is or a few bars with a yellow caution sign, and Windows says 'Identifying...'. I've compared the two SSIDs using the console and the GUI and I can't seem to spot any obvious differences between them.
I want to connect two buildings. Let's call them Building A (main) and Building B.
„A“ is the main building and provides a wired LAN to an AAA server (192.168.1.2) and the WAN gateway (192.168.1.1). There I placed a 1262N with the IP 192.168.1.3 connected to the wired LAN and configured it as Root-Bridge. Let's call it AP01.
„B“ is a pretty large building and has a wired LAN from one end to the other end. So I placed two 1262N there, each at one end.
The first 1262N is configured as non-root Bridge (AP02) and connects to the Root Bridge (AP01). The IP address of AP02 is 192.168.1.4.
The second 1262N is configured as Access Point (AP03) and connects to the non-root Bridge (AP02) via the wired LAN. The IP adress of AP03 is 192.168.1.5
1. Do I need tell AP02 about the AAA Server in Building A or acts AP01 like a AAA Proxy for AP02 because of it Root Bridge functionality?
2. How Do I tell AP03 that it should use AP02 as a gateway to building A?
I would like to buy Cisco Aironet 1260 Access Points, i just want to use them independantly so i want to know do they work without the Wireless LAN Controller? or i have to have the controller for them to work? they will be in different locations so i cant have a controller per each location.
I must configure an Aironet 2602e Access Point, as a standalone access point (without WLC), but I can not find Configuration Guides for that. I have only found the "getting started guide" but there is described an installation combined with a WLC, which I have not. Is it provided no real guidance from Cisco? I did something never done before.
I've recently obtained a Cisco Aironet 1242AG WAP. I do realize this is not a standalone router. I would like to use it as an extension of my current router. So right now, the status light is alternating colors. If I understand this correctly, it cannot find the controller. I cannot telnet into it, or use the web broswer interface. They both say the connection is not available. However, when I check my DHCP table from my router, I see that an IP has been assigned to the MAC for the WAP. I've tried doing a factory reset by holding MODE before I plug in the power, and waiting until it turns amber. After a few minutes and going through a few LED changes, it goes back to continuosly alternating colors.
We are in need to perform a site survey with the Aironet 1041N Access Point.
Upon reviewing the site survey software, it seems you need to use an Aironet adapter. However from what i can tell, all the Aironet adapters are PCMICA cards, which most modern laptops do not have, and the PCMICA cards that do exist don't have drivers for windows 7.
Are there USB adapters w/ Windows 7 drivers that can be used to perform a site survey?
We have 2 aironet 1310 aps setup as infrastructure access points between 2 buildings. One went south on us & we placed it. Before the bad one went down, we were able to manage both remotely & could see them from the next device via CDP. Now, we can't connect or even ping either AP. And the weird part is that the switches that connected to each can see each other via CDP, but not the access points between them. I'm attaching the configuration. Before I make the 2.5 hour drive back to the site, what I may have misconfigured on either or both access points?
We are expanding our wireless infrastructure by adding further access points AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9.We use four WLC 4402 running version 22.214.171.124 as a fail over pair.What is the maximum limit the WLC can handle ?What is the recommended limit one WLC can handle ?We can divide the load on the controllers but in case of a failover one WLC will manage all access points.
I have recently purchase Aironet Access Point. I'm pretty new to Cisco systems and what i'm try to do is have the access point broadcast multiple SSIDs lets call them Guest and Admin. My problems is when i config router to have a DHCP address it works perfectly fine but when i assign a static IP it shows all the any connected device as unkown with IP 0.0.0.0. So i'm guessing i will need to setup a dhcp server. Is there a way access point can have its own DHCP server and IP address ( i don't want to use any from my STATIC ip subnet as i dont know alot of empty ones left) like home wifi router where they assign each device an IP like 192.168.0.1. Is this possible?
Is any one can configure basic Point-toPoint wireless bridge. I need to connect two simple LAN with Cisco Aironet1310 AP. I required basic configuration with basic authentication between these two devices which is on IOS "123-8.JEA3".
I have dozens of Cisco Aironet 1100 access points, each is managing its own wi-fi with DHCP. I had to disable dhcp on them because they are on a wired subnet where I am using the static IPs and don't want my wired clients to get DHCP addresses, nor someone to be able to plug the wire into own laptop and get on the network. It's been working fine with one exception - I need to be able to ping my access points from the central site, and I can't. What IOS command would enable ICMP echo on my access points in this case?
