Cisco Wireless :: Setting Up 1142 Access Point With DHCP
Aug 10, 2011
I am setting up an autonomous 1142 Access Point. The intended goal is to get it accessible though 2 SSIDs:Private: VLAN3 (our internal data VLAN)Guest: VLAN98 (our DMZ/Segregated VLAN)At present, our VLAN3/internal users get DHCP addresses from x2 Windows DHCP servers. Eventually, the DMZ VLAN connections will get their IP addresses from a switch in our DMZ VLAN.At the moment, I am able to authenticate with the Access Point through the VLAN 3 SSID but never get an IP address. I have posted the switch port config below as well as the Access Point config.
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've recently set up a guest wireless in my office, using a WLC 2504 controlling 4 1142 APs. They have been working great for about a month, but as of yesterday, the Wifi signal from 2 of the APs began to pulse - 5 seconds on, 1 second off - which makes it unusable. [code]
All APs are receiving PoE from their last 3750 (at default levels). I've cycled the individual APs, as well as the WLC, but the issue remains.Except for the initial 3750 directly connected, all other 3750's are different.
I have a slightly confusing set up on my home network and can't figure out how to set up a wireless access point. Here is my setup:I have an Apple airport extreme N set up in the main house. We also have a converted garage in the back yard that is barely within the range of the main router. I have an ethernet cable running from the router in the main house to the back house. I then have that plugged into a switch, which then feeds ethernet to several components. The wireless signal in the back house is very weak, which can be frustrating, so I wanted to set up a separate wireless network in the back. I have an Apple airport express that I am currently using to stream music to a home theater in the back house and would love to use that as a wireless access point. It is hooked up to the switch. I also have a Netgear N router that I could possible use as an access point as well. The problem that I am having is with IP address assignment. I would guess that this is because the main router assigns IP addresses and then the switch also assigns IP addresses
I have WL-5460AP v2 access point so my question is how do i need to set my access point(which mode) so i can receive connection from an open wireless conection (router) and share it wirelessly with the Access point simply said i want to extend the connection here are the modes that the AP has url...do i need UNIVERSAL REPEATER mode or else?
I have set up a home network some time ago, using a 4-port wired router. All four ports are in use, one of which by my own desktop computer running Windows XP Home, SP3.I recently received a new laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit). Because I can't afford a wireless router at the moment, I've been trying to set up my Windows XP computer as a wireless access point (using a Wireless LAN PCI card), so I can connect my laptop to it and share my internet connection.However, when I try to set up an ad hoc network on my XP computer, it doesn't show up in the list of available networks on my laptop, though it does show up on the XP computer, with the message that it's waiting for other computers to join.The same thing happens the other way around. When I try setting up an ad hoc network on my laptop, it doesn't show up on my desktop computer.
I have never setup an wireless access point before and am having some issues. I have a Linksys WAP54G ver 3.1. A friend gave it to me and he said it was working when he pulled it out of his office.I defaulted the device and using the wizard have the following setup:
Setup: Network: Device Name - Linksys WAP54G Configuration Type - Static IP IP Address: 10.0.0.239 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
When I try to connect to it via my laptop I get the error: "Windows was unable to connect to XXXXX"
I've done quite a bit of work with Cisco kit before (it isn't my speciality, however) and am currently working on setting up the embedded Access Point in a Cisco 1941w ISR.
The primary router is working fine, but I'm getting no where with the embedded Access Point. The whole IOS within an IOS just doesn't compute for me. Our requirements are really simple.
We have a 10.0.0.0/24 internal network. We want users to be able to access this via the 1941w Wireless Access Point, in the same way that wired users access this via the Ethernet port.
The manual re. setting up the AP gives an example where IP addresses are applied to the AP, which doesn't make sense to me, as we simple want the AP to sit on the same VLAN as the ethernet port.
How the AP is supposed to interface with the primary router? Also, we want to use a WPA secret key to authenticate to AP. Is this possible? The Cisco docs seem to suggest that WPA is only possible through some 3rd party server.
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 just bought a Linksys E4200 wireless router. I have an old Linksys WRT160N wireless router. I would like to setup the WRT160N downstairs to wire the DirecTv box and PS3 to it. Then wirelessly connect to the E4200 upstairs where our modem is connected. Can the WRT160N be used as an access point to do this or do I need other equipment?
I am connected to internet via a cable modem, via the LAN cable, I connect cable modem to WAG120N that I want to use as an wireless access point only. And I have got 2 PC, 1 runs on XP, the other on runs on Windows 7. My XP would have no trouble to connect to wireless, but the Win7 can only connect to wireless network, but no internet. When I try the troubleshooting from Win 7, it says, DNS server isnt responding The setting I am using at the moment is Bridged mode only, without entering any values of DNS, IP, etc Is there any setting that work for both OS?
I have a small business and IT guy is on vacation for a few weeks. We have a LAN network as well as a wireless router in the office. We have one LAN port in our warehouse, but instead of running 200 ft of cable to the area where I need a connection, I wanted to use that port to hook up a WRT150 N Home Router as an access point to set-up wireless downstairs. I have reset the router, but when I hook it up to a PC downstairs, I cannot even get a LAN internet connection. I have shut everything down and rebooted, but nothing. Our main router (WRV54G) is connected to the address 192.168.1.1. I'm not sure how to install the wireless on the WRT150N if I can't get an internet connection at all, and then how do I change it to an access point. I need to get this up soon otherwise I would wait for my IT guy to come back.
I want to use one (or two) AP1232AG-E-K9 access points for Internet connection through a public wireless network (BTFON), where wire broadband is not an option. I've downloaded what I think is the correct manual for the APs and I'm now scratching my head as to where and how to start setting them up. I want to use these Cisco APs in the hope they will give me better wireless performance than I'm currently getting, which is frequently flakey. I've tried to reset the APs to the factory default but there seem to be different ways of doing this depending on what you want and what you've got. I made up a console cable to access the console but there even appear to be different versions of this so I'm not sure if the cable I have is the correct one. I have setup and used lower end wireless devices in the past but these Cisco units seem real complicated.
I have a static IP given to me by the service provider, and I need to make the Access point as a DHCP server to provide me IPs inside my LAN.I have created a DHCP pool in the AP. But do I have to NAT the public IP onto the private DHCP range ? This setup is possible.
I recently purchased another 1142 AP to expand out our current wireless infrastructure, my question is, what exactly needs to be done for this to work so that users can roam freely and auto-connect to the closet AP with the best connection without getting disconnected?
I have set all the settings the exact same on the new AP to match the existing AP. (How to save the configs into a file would be great, I am not sure how to do that)... But anyhow, before I launch it, I would like to be sure I am correct so I do not bring down the existing network. Of course, the only difference between the 2 are the IP addresses. AP1 is 192.168.2.2 and AP2 is 192.168.2.3
I need to control the rate at which my WUSB600N adapter connects to my access point. By default, it rate adapts through negotiation with the access point based on a set of possible rates. Can I restrict the set of rates my adapter can use (without re-writing the driver ). I've looked at netsh which provides stats about the rate my adapter is actually using but doesn't appear to allow me to set the desired rate. I'm using Windows Vista by the way.
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?
configuring DHCP on access point, i have cisco 1142N access point, in my network.. working in autonomous mode, i have assigned a static ip to access point with default gateway.. from AP i'm able to reach internet and user connecting to access point are not able to get ip.. i have DHCP server in my network. how to make access point to fetch ip from my dhcp server and assign the saem to client.
I bought this gizmo from a Sydney online dealer hoping it would increase the distance I could take my Ipad and iPhone from the modem however I am a little lost setting it up.It is a Blueway UltraSpeed BT-N9500 Super Speed High-Power Wireless Access Point.I have Win 7 Home on the Laptop box I am trying to use it on.It installed the driver okay and says it is ready for use.But that is where I am lost.Should it be attached to the remote unit (Laptop) or the Desktop Win 7 Pro one near the modem/router?
I have FIOS and a router provided by verizon. they installed it in the basement and the wi-fi range needs to be improved in my house. I have 2 old linksys routers and a netgear DSL modem/router (with "N") that I'd like to use as an access point or range extender. how do I set this up?
i have a verizon usb720 modem. i want to set up my wirless printer. Previously i had this set up by a profesional. I bought a new computer and am now trying to set this up. I have a linksys router as well wrt54g how is tis done. you cannot connect anything to the modem but i have read that you can turn the router into an access point.
Set up a WDS with a TEW-639GR Router and a TEW-638APB Access point. I am aware that I get half throughput when I access the repeater on WDS and that isn't an issue. Its only laptops, ipads, and Vita's that go upstairs to access the internet because they are mobile. I believe I have set up the 639GR correctly and entered in the other devices MAC address in each device. I double checked they were entered in correctly. When I could not get it working with WEP, I have been attempting to do it without encryption just to get it working.
When I am done configuring them, I take the Access point upstairs and plug it in and the signal streangth is much much better upstairs with it, but I get no internet access and the network keeps dropping off. the networks are named the same and they are on the same channel. All the other networks in my small local area were using channels 1-6, so I put down 11. Both are on 11. When I had first purchased the 639GR half a year ago, I found a website that gave you step by step instructions in how to set up WDS specificly for it. I didn't have the access point then because I didn't need it.
setting up wifi network in my office. my complete set up right now. the main problem is how to setup my access points . Okay so here it is.
I have 3 - 4 PCS in my office out of which My machine is the main machine and everything is setup on this. so for networking what i have done is i am using a TP link router model TL-WR941D. i had got it configured from an engineer. A cable from my internet modem goes into the blue port of this router(WAN) and my PCs are connected via the LAN port of the router . so everything is working fine right now the local network and internet on all PCS and my laptop also connects through the wifi and is able to access other pcs and also the internet.
To have better signal strength on other floors of the building my engineer had installed 2 access points. They are TP link model Tl-WA901ND. yesterday i updated the firmware of my main router and the settings were some how lost but i managed to set it back to working state using the quick setup utility. so my router and wifi is working fine. But now my access points have stopped sworking . i mean i am not able to get better signal strengths thorugh them. i am assuming theirs ettings /ip etc are lost. now i have no idea how to setup these access points to be used again as part of my wifi network. I looked on the internet but nowhere the thing has been explained in detail. how can i configure my access points/repeaters agaain? i am stuck and engineer is not available for nest few days and my officee internet is suffering.
My internet provider is telus and they gave me a modem/router combo model VA-G3810bn/tl and another router a linksys wrt310n and i want to by pass the router built into the modem so my linksys will put out a signal instead as it is faster connection any im using windows seven and mozilla firefox if that matters
My son is using the above access point on his laptop. He wants to make the connection secure by having a password that you must enter in order to access it. How does he set up this password? Looked at the user manual; see the screens but don't know how to get to the screen.
I wanted to set Belkin Share Max n300 as an access point. I followed the instructions, set the IP address to the suggested one and connected it to the main router. It worked, computer connected to the Belkin via wire was getting IP address from DHCP on main router. But: The Belkin device itself became invisible. I lost connection to Belkin device via config page via HTTP. It does not respond to any IP address so I actually cannot use it for purpose I wanted to set up secondary Wi-fi, I just cannot configure it. Also I wanted to use USB ports of the Belkin to connect external drives. I cannot do it as well. More over it does not go back. It does not reset to the original router option.
I am looking for an equipment recommendation for setting up an access point/repeater for my home network.
I have comcast > surfboard > d-link dir 655 I want to add another router/access point so I can move the dir655 to my office and have my computers connected over gigbait. All my comcast stuff is setup in the living room, and I would like to setup the access point there. Something like
I am in the process of deploying an additional Cisco 1142 AP into my network. I would like to set it up to be the same SSID as the first one, and be able to have laptops roam from AP to AP. I am simply trying to expand the current coverage of my wireless network. I have both APs mounted and access to both.
-CISCOAP01 - 192.168.2.2 -CISCOAP02 - 192.168.2.3
What do I need to do (configre) to make this happen? I am rather new with Cicso. I am using the web interface to setup the APs. The first one has been up and running for about a year now with no problems. [code]
