Cisco Wireless :: Aironet 1140 First Time Install - Blinking Red / Green / Blue
May 28, 2013
I'm installing the first out of 10 Aironet AP's with an inline injector. The lights on the Aironet and alernating blue, green, red. I know the error code is for DHCP, but when I plug it in I see the AP on my DHCP server and it does pull an IP address. I can ping the ip address, but I cannot access it through my browser.
I have tried deleting the entry out of the DHCP and power it back on again. I have also tried another unit with the same results. I don't have a RJ-45 to serial cable.
Just had some more 3500i installed,but 2 of these seem to be working, but there is no green LED when no connection, and when you conneect there is no blue led. The LEDs to change when rebooting the AP, just neve seen this before, is this a fault?
After the upgrade of the WLC 5508 to version 7.4 the 1142 access-points LED blinking rapidly cycling through blue, green, and red. I found the following information to this behavior: "Access point location command invoked"
The configuration didn't change. How can I switch this function?
I'm having a strange issue with an 1142 AP. I have a 5508 WLC at my corporate HQ and have AP's in many locations, connected by MPLS WAN. I have one site where the 1142 is blinking green and doesn't associate with the WLC. I have tried a different switch port with the AP (didn't work) and I know that the switch port is good because I have a 1252 that works just fine at this remote location.The really weird part is that the AP is blinking green, but the switch port shows that it is not connected and the green port light on the 3560 switch is not lit. I have verified wiring in the closet, but unfortunately the 1142 AP is hanging 40ft high in a shop and I don't have access to it.Is it possible that there's a bad rj-45 termination that is allowing PoE to the AP, but no data?
I have a problem with three AIR-LAP1131AG-E-K9 that joined the controller and the status led turns to yellow after joining the controller while other LEDs are blinking green.The APs has no coverage at all although the WCS shows that there is coverage and the 4400WLC shows that the AP interfaces are UP. (The ethernet interface and tha 802.11b,g radio interface is up).The SSID broadcast is enabled.On the switch the interface is up and there is traffic going in and out of the LAP.I tired power reset and factory reset for the APs but the problem remains the same.
I am replacing an old Catalyst 3550 (that has 2 Gig ports) with a 3750 (that has 4)- I used the exact same configuration in the new switch. When I plugged in the new 3750, the trunk ports started blinking from green to amber. I dont know why this is occuring- it SEEMS to be fine, but we havent thrown a whole bunch of traffic over it.
I just installed an Aironet 1140 to replace a Netgear ProSafe access point that I had in my network prior. I'm having one issue that I can't figure out though. None of the client PCs can establish a connection to an external (over the internet) VPN server while on the Aironet wireless. If i unplug the AP and plug a PC into the same port that normall feeds the Aironet I can VPN just fine.
Is there any "VPN Passthrough" option that needs to be enabled somewhere on the 1140 that is blocking this traffic for some reason?
i'm running the following IOS BOOTLDR: C1140 Boot Loader (C1140-BOOT-M) Version 12.4(18a)JA3, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) and I've included my running config below

I try to setup a 1141 aironet AP to authenticate my user through our Ms Radius Server ( Win 2008 R2).Everything is fine with small Bussiness AP WAP4410N with the following configuration:But I can't setup successfully the aironet 1141 with the same settings and getting it works.Here is my configuration for the Aironet 1141 Vlan 1 is the ssid I want to get it work with Radius.
We have 6 aironet 1140's throughout the office I have them all configed as one ssid but I would like the DHCP to come from our Windows server. Right now I have set them up with ip dhcp pools. So what is the secret to get them to send dhcp requests to the Windows server?
If I do a speed test (bandwidthplace.com) while connected to a remote locations 1140 standalone access point, the download/upload speeds are roughly 100kbps. There are no other devices connected to the access point at the time. Wired PCs on the LAN that the access point is connected to are not having a problem.Pings from the laptop, through the access point, to our central WAN router are at <10ms.The WAN circuit (remote location to headquarters) is 5Mbps. No congestion.Circuit out from headquarters to I'net is 50Mbps. No congestion.Access point and router interfaces show no errors or collisions, etc. The configuration is the same as 28 other standalone access points in 28 different LANs on the WAN. They have no problems.
I have an Aironet 1140 AP that will not connect to the network when on PoE (either using a Cisco PoE injector) or a Avocent Switch that provides PoE.
The AP will boot up and and devices will connect to it (the LED changes to blue) but none of the devices can get access to the corporate network or internet. When the AP is powered by the standard power supply, it operates normally, i.e. devices can access the network. Are there settings that can be changed to get the AP to work correctly on PoE?
I am using a Aironet 1100 series access point (AIR-AP1142N-N-K9) with IOS version c1140-k9w7-tar.124-21a.JA1. I want to create two seperate SSID's on the access point with WEP encryption. There is no VLAN configured and i want it to be like it. Also I need to broadcast both the SSID's at the same time, so the some of my users need to login with the first SSID and the others to login through the other.
I have recently setup one stand alone aironet 1140 with mostly default settings with WPA key. but, it seems sometimes it's dropping the connections. hardly 15 users are connecting to aironet at the moment.
Just a few days ago, one of my coworkers computer was unable to see any of our wireless access points - all aironet 1140. He is one of two using a Win 7 machine, everybody else uses Mac with either Lion or Mountain Lion. The Macs can "see" and connect to our wireless AP's just fine.
The odd thing is that is his computer can pick up our neighbors wireless access points, but can't "see" ours. Also, a few peoples phones can no longer detect them either - both iphone 4's (ios 5.1.1 and 6) and androids (2.3 and 4)
No changes were made to our AP's, then people started having wifi issues.
The command that is given returns an error at the letter a in archive. The command I used was: archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp:// obviously with my tftp server info and file name at the end. I logged in with privileged EXEC mode as directed, but archive is not listed when I type ? to get a list of commands. I need to have this AP up and running by Monday.
For some time now I have been looking for a good business class wireless AP. I've narrowed it down to the Cisco Aironet 1140 standalone (no controller). I'm no stranger to Cisco products. I've worked with their routers, switches and Pix/ASA firewalls. However, I've not had the opportunity to work with their wireless AP's. Anyone using these AP's (more specifically the 1140 standalone), can provide information on the reliability and security of these devices. Some of the features I would like to have like Radio Mgmt. and Rogue AP Detection I see are only available on the controller based units. Does not having these features on the standalone unit reduce its reliability and security? This is for a small business and the budget does not allow to drop for a controller at this time.
I am having an issue with my Android Tablet running 4.1 (Jelly Bean). It is able to the SSID, but when I try to connect - it stays connecting and then says saved, and never connects, as it does not pick up an IP address. I updated the firmware on the Aironet 1140 due to my Windows 8 pc's not connecting as well, it solved my Windows 8 problem, just not my Android Tablet problem. My Ipads do work. Just any android device I connect.
I recently changed the configuration of my Aironet 1140 from WEP to WAP2-Enterprise to make it more secure. I am using the WAP as the radius server. After making the change I connected my Blackberry to the wap as well as a Samsung Chromebook. However when I tried to connect my HP laptop it is unable to connect. Watching from the Aironet's console I see that it is processing the association and windows ask me to enter my uid and password. When I do this I get an authentication error. I have tried several times adjusting parameters on windows but it always fails. Here is the configuration of the WAP:

I am in the process of installing an Aironet 1140 standalone AP. I have not worked with these AP's before. I will be connecting it to one of the PoE ports on the existing ASA 5505. My goal is to have 2 SSID's, one for internal network and one for guest internet only, no access to internal LAN. I want to have the internal wifi clients and the guest clients on seperate IP networks. The internal clients obtain DHCP from the existing server and use the ASA DHCP server for the guest clients. And of course, I would like the ability to manage the AP from the internal network. I am providing copies of my current configs for both the ASA and Aironet.
Users are facing issue since a long time now . Whenever user connected to wireless is idle say 10 -20 seconds he gets disconnected This happens for all the users and even Mac/Win 7 I changed Activity Timeout on AP and even rebooted but still when I do show dot11 associations all-client I see activity-timeout
Users don't get disconnected when there is continous flow of data its only when user is idle
When user disconnects and hit refersh it starts working again
I just installed 2 new units and neither will connect to a new HP gigabit switch - no link light, other devices can connect to the switch OK. Their gigabit ethernet settings are set to auto for duplex and speed. I also tried forcing one of them to full duplex and 1000 Mbps which didn't work either. They're both powered by POE injectors. If I connect them to a 10/100 switch they work fine.
Our office has 4 Cisco Aironet 1140 access points mounted on the ceiling. They are all powered via PoE. Every few days 3 of the 4 access points hang and have to be rebooted. When they hang I am not able to connect to their web interface to check the logs. The fourth, for some reason, always seems to stay alive.
I checked the configuration for all AP's and "Hot Standby" is disabled They are all using static IP addresses. I've tried 2 different banks of static IP addresses and 3 of 4 still hange so I don't think this is an IP conflict. I have saved the configurations and compared them and they are all identical, where possible.
They all have software version: 12.4(21a)JA1
They all have bootloader version: 12.4(23c)JA1
I have tried to download the latest software/firmware, but unfortunately I do not have a valid service contract in place with Cisco and therefore can't download the latest version. All of our CISCO hardware was purchased from Amazon resellers but no luck. I have also tried to contact Cisco and they can't seem to assist either. How I can get a valid service contract that information would also be very useful!!!
why 3 of our 4 access points would hang? When they hang, I can't login to the web interface and the logs seem to reset when I reset each access point. I have also set up an rsyslog server and I don't see a log entry that would indicate a problem.
I've set up a Cisco Aironet 1301 AP to be used for a guest network. I've got several other of the Aironet 1140-series around the business but none of them are in reach of this one at the moment.
The problem I have is that clients that try to connect to the AP are either not able to connect at all or lose their connection after some seconds. The config is more or less copied from the other APs with the same guest VLAN.
In our project we are building a smartphone application dat determines the locations of persons in a building, using Wifi access points.Using 3 accespoint we are calculating the overlap of 3 circles.Today we measured the signal strength and found out that it changes around alot.So we dont really know if our measurements are right.
We would like to know what the RSSI strengths are of the following access point per meter.Cisco Aironet 1140 2.4 ghz
I have a Cisco Aironet 1140 with ENABLED broadcasting SSID, encryption is WPA2(personal). Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 are authenticated, but MACBooks never be authenticated. Any specific configuration for MAC books?
We have been successfully using our Aironet 1140 AP in standalone mode with mainly Windows pcs & laptop users, and now, iPads and iPhones. All seem to connect happily through the 1140.
Recently we have a requirent to be able to use Apple's Airplay. Basically, it is not working through the 1140, it works ok via wired ethernet. Can the 1140 support Airplay? - If yes, what precisely must be enabled/configured?
We have a single Class C network without any Vlans. I understand multicast must be enabled, I can't see where to enable this. How to get this working if it is at all possible.
I bought 2 Cisco 1140 series Access Points a couple of months ago. We would like to use PEAP to autheticate with Microsoft IAS Radius Server & Active directory. I cannot find a document which describes how to setup this type of configuration. The only document which is close is how to setup LEAP & with ACS: [URL] I initially followed the 'TechReplublic's Ultimate Guide to Enterprise Wireless LAN Security' which has all the steps to setup Radius server, client side configuration, Certificates and finally a handy excel script to generate a config for the AP. This did not work. [URL] I am now trying to configure the AP using the Web GUI. I can see the network on the client machine but when I try to connect it timesout.
