Aironet 1100 with Static Address

Hi All
I have taken over some access points from a company which were providing our wireless service and have not yet received the IP scheme information.
I need to get onto one of the Aironet 1100 access points to see what the config etc is.
I will only be able to take it down for a few hours, how to I actually connect to it.
I am pretty sure it is configured with a static IP address which I do not know so is there anyway of connecting to it without using the Reset to Default method obviously!
I have tried IPSU and a hub but no good.
All replied gratefully received!!
Darran

Thanks for the replies guys but it hasnt solved my problem.
Looks like it's not a static address after all
I have done the following
1. Plugged the AP into a switch on our network and connected to it wirelessly. I receive an IP the very same as if I was plugged into the switch directly and when I do an IPconfig I get the very same info as if I was plugged directly in. Still cannot find the AP IP Address though.
2. Plugged the AP into a switch on our network and connected to the switch and did a show cdp neighbour, the access point does not show up, only other switches.
3. Read the user guide and connected my laptop directly to the AP with a CAT 5 cable and gave the laptop an address of 10.0.0.2 . The AP does not seem to revert to 10.0.0.1 as suggested in the manual.
4. I have tried to run the IPSU under all the above conditions, searching by the mac address of the AP but it has not received anything.
ANy other ideas, Im at my wits end!!

  • How to use both wired and wireless connection with static addresses

    Now that I have setup my home network with static addresses (router, mini1, mini2 and PC) in the way I want, (big thanks to BDAqua http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1271635&tstart=0) I would like to understand some more advanced network concepts.
    I would like to change the network so that I use both the wireless connection and the built-in ethernet connection at the same time in my Mac mini1. I would like to connect my PC to my Mac mini by using the wired ethernet connection so that I reach the Internet from my PC as well. I would also like to be in control of all the addresses therefore I want to assign the addresses manually.
    The question: What addresses should I use between mini1 and PC? Should I use the same wireless address space as I already use between the wireless router and the other computers (router: 192.168.1.1, mini1: 192.168.1.101, mini2: 192.168.1.103) or should I use something totally different like 10.X.X.X? What should I put in ethernet connection "Router"-field, the same as in Airport (192.168.1.1)? What about DNS, same as in Airport?

    If I understand this correctly, you wish your Mini to perform Internet Sharing for your PC, correct!?
    If so you'll pretty much have to let the Mini handle DHCP & NAT on the Ethernet port. You also want to be sure Airport is dragged to the top of Network>Show:>Network Port Configurations, that's what position the Mini will use 1st for Internet itself.
    On the Mini turn on both Web Sharing & Internet Sharing. The PC once connected will have the Mini's Ethernet IP as it's Gateway addy.

  • IPhone has different IP address then WAP with Static Address

    I have several WAP's throughout the house but when I am in my office where I have a Linksys WAP54G set with a static IP (1921.168.1.200)address (which all of them have) and I connect my iPhone to it, the iPhone gives me a whole different IP address (192.168.1.46) then what it should be? I can ping the right address from my iMac, I can direct access it using the browser at the 200 address but when the iPhone connects to the address it shows the 46 address? Any ideas why? I can't really tell you if any of the other WAP's (some are Apple and some are Linksys) act this way, I am going to check it out though.

  • Aironet 1100 with iPAQ 5450 and LEAP

    Hi All,
    I have a 5450 iPAQ with built in LEAP support. We use the 1100 Aironets on our WLAN. When I enable LEAP on the iPAQ the device never associates to the AP at all?
    I have debugged for "dot11 aaa dot1x all" on the AP but never see any events coming through. It looks as if the device is not associating to the AP at all. The status on the device just sits on "Initialiasing".
    I'm running 12.2(8)JA on the 1100. Is there a setting I'm missing to support non-cisco hardware from the AP because my Cisco LAN adapter works fine with LEAP from my laptop.
    Has anyone else seen this or got it working?

    Try resetting all WEP keys on both the AP and the client card. This can help confirm that an error in the key entry was not made, thereby precluding this as a possible source of the inability to complete an association.

  • Express and extreme both "n" with static vs dhcp reservations.

    Good day, and thanks for reading.
    I have an express that I have configured to "extend my wireless network" with my extreme. This is all setup manually, with no internet connection needed. everything is static and I am just using the wireless and switch of the routers.
    I have 4 electronic components that have static IP addresses _and_ I have added the mac addresses to the DHCP reservation list as well.
    I would prefer to leave everything with just the manual addresses in mac access control, however- the apple log does not show the connections for these components with static addresses. However, they do show up on the log as connected in the DHCP client log when I am using DHCP only.
    My questions are;
    1. Does it hurt performance on the routers to have the mac addresses filled in on both the DHCP reservation list, and the mac address control list?
    2. Do I need to have all the mac addresses for my connected components on both the extreme and the express or, can I just have them inserted on the extreme- and are there any conflicts that can arise with having them coded on both routers?
    I just want to be able to see the connections on the log, and currently it will only show them if I am using DHCP.
    Thanks you.

    Hello chrisinoswego. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    1. Does it hurt performance on the routers to have the mac addresses filled in on both the DHCP reservation list, and the mac address control list?
    No.
    2. Do I need to have all the mac addresses for my connected components on both the extreme and the express or, can I just have them inserted on the extreme- and are there any conflicts that can arise with having them coded on both routers?
    When employing MAC Access Control, the MAC addresses would need to be entered in each base station. The only conflict that I am aware of is when the (in this case) two MAC lists are not identical.

  • No IP address on Aironet 1100 AP

    We have 5 Aironet 1100 series APs deployed in one of our buildings. A few days ago, 3 of them showed down in our monitoring. The next day the other 2 showed down. When I go to the switches that they are attached to and do a show cdp neighbor detail, I see all the access points but NO IP address. Also, when I went to to site, I can connect to the APs via wireless and be on the network just fine. We have static IP addresses assigned to them. However, they are not pingable and do not show up in the ARP table of the switch.
    They have been running a couple of years without changes.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Carl

    Probably a dumb question but have you rebooted the AP's? Also, are they drawing power from a powered switch or do they have their own mains power bricks attached?

  • Linux clients not associating with Aironet 1100

    Does anyone know if there is an issue with a Linux client associating with an Aironet 1100 using WEP? Windows clients are connecting fine, and the Linux client connects to Linksys branded APs with WEP no problem.
    Aironet config:
    IOS 12.3(2)
    16 AP on same SSID, different cells
    128-bit WEP
    Linux client:
    Dlink Airplus DWL-G630
    Kernel: Slackware 2.6.12.2
    Commands used to associate
    ifconfig ath0 up
    iwconfig ath0 ath0 mode managed key restricted [2] {key}
    dhcpcd ath0
    After bringing up the ath0 interface, and running the iwconfig, you can see the iwconfig settings are sticking, but it seems to be jumping around APs when you watch the MAC of the AP. It goes from a valid MAC address to FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF and then to another valid address, and back again. This does not happen on the Linksys AP.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Andy

    Try entering the key (on the Linux box) as hex.
    Most of the Windows client software lets you enter the key in ASCII ... some client software requires that you put in the hex translation.
    You can check the logs on the 1100 to see what the failure message is ,,, but I'd bet it'll be something along the lines of "Invalid Key"
    Good Luck

  • Port Forwarding and Printing with Static IP Address

    Hey there -
    I am trying to setup a network printer that can be printed to from anywhere in the world. My organization has 5 static IP addresses given to us by our ISP. Four of those I have on computers, and one of them I have on my Linksys router (WRT54G v.8).
    What I want to do is be able to setup a printer on my router that I can print to from anywhere I have an internet connection. My wireless router's static IP address is 74.172.54.XXX - The address on my network is 192.168.7.1 - I have a printer statically assigned the IP address 192.168.7.2 - and I have a port forwarding for port 70 to forward to 192.168.7.2
    In theory, I would think that now I could print to 74.172.54.XXX:70 and have no problems. But that doesn't seem to be working. Even printing to 192.168.7.1:70 doesn't seem to work either.
    Also, the printer has a web GUI interface that if I type http://192.168.7.1/ into my browser it comes up, so in theory I would think typing http://74.172.54.XXX:70 into my browser it should come up (but it doesn't nor does http://192.168.7.1:70).
    Anybody got any suggestions? I tried to do a search about this, but ever Port Forwarding question seemed to deal with gaming (which I have no desire to do). Thanks!
    I will include two screen snapshots of what I am talking about:
    Thanks for any help.

    Is the router setup to accept static connections?
    I have my router set up to accept both, so from 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.192 the addresses are static the other addresses are given by DHCP.
    If you do not define a range and the address your laptop has as static IP conflicts with the address given by DHCP your loose ... as in you get no address.
    Set up of that feature may depend on your type of router but usually any decent router will have that capability ... read your manual for specifics about your unit.
    Best of luck.

  • RRAS 2012 With DHCP Works, Cannot Get Static Address Pool To Connect Completely

    Hello Forums Users:
    I have set up RRAS/DA 2012 successfully incorporating my AD DHCP server.   Every connection works and I see all networks that I have VPN tunnels set up with, which is totally cool.    However, I want to assign remote VPN users IP's from a
    static address pool - and while the setup completes without issue and the client connects, I can see absolutely nothing.    No good pings, no connect to Lync client, Outlook, etc. etc.
    I am OBVIOUSLY missing something but have no idea what that is.   Do I need to add something (and I really have no idea what that "something" is) to RRAS config so the static address pool (192.168.40.0 in this case) has the same access as
    the AD DHCP pool does?
    Thanks again for taking the time to check this out and comment.

    Bill:
    Thanks for the reply....  yes, the idea is to free up a pool of IP's large enough to accomodate all 170 staff.   Our current 192.168.2.x DHCP hands out 150, but I need to plan for DR/BCP when other locations (about 110 users) remote in when their
    location goes dark.
    I already have VPN tunnels between the main locations and a VPN user can see ALL of them when it gets an IP from DHCP.   Are you saying that I have to add routes to all the routers/firewalls to accomplish this?
    Or would I use IPv4 Static Routes?   A network I'd like access to is 192.168.14.0 /24.   Would the route look like any of these?   Sorry it's not clear what I would use as the gateway (192.168.2.1 is the RRAS server network gateway, 192.168.2.6
    is RRAS IP)
    Destination         Net Mask               Gateway                Interface
    192.168.14.0      255.255.255.0        192.168.2.1            LAN
    192.168.14.0    255.255.255.0
      192.168.14.254      LAN             (
    (.254 is the remote gateway)

  • Aironet 1100 AP (11.b) - am I stuck with WEP?

    Hi all,
    I have several Aironet 1100 series access point. These are the 11.b with WEP encryption. Can I upgrade those to WPA or higher, or am I stuck with what I have?
    Thanks in advance for any information.

    Hi Noel,
    try out this one:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk722/tk809/technologies_configuration_example09186a008054339e.shtml#config_ap
    This is a step by step guide for WPA2. You can not have WPA2 since the lack of a G-Radio interface. But WPA is possible.
    Just change these few things:
    Step 2a. Choose TKIP as Cipher
    Step 3c. Tick also CCKM
    I have the same setup running with 1200 APs only b Radios.
    The difference is that WPA uses TKIP for encryption and WPA2 AES.
    WPA2 is the modern implementation, but WPA meets the actual security needs of the most companies.
    I hope that helps.
    Best regards,
    Frank
    P.S. Please rate helpful posts.

  • Version 29: Address bar is filled with static Firefox icons. Unable to type URL in address bar.

    I've never seen this before and cannot find a solution in support or in a general Google search.
    We have a user who has an address bar filed with static Firefox icons (there is a screen shot if there is any way to provide that). If the user clicks on them, they go nowhere (they shouldn't be there anyway, right?). This user is unable to type anything into the address bar, either. Not certain if there was an auto-update to version 29 overnight or not, but Firefox was uninstalled a fresh version of 29 installed - the reasoning being it might have been an installation issue. The issue still remains. This user is not having the same issue with Chrome. Have not tried reproducing it with any other browser on that machine. Have not heard any complaints from other users in the office using version 29.
    Is there some setting that is being overlooked with version 29? Is it a bug? Should we try installing version 28 and see if it's a versioning issue or perhaps something else? Trying to eliminate possible issues and move onto the next set of solutions.
    Thanks,

  • Problem iPhone WiFi Connection to Airport Express with static IP addresses

    We have our Airport Express configured on the LAN with a fixed IP. It is not distributing IP addresses, or providing DHCP services; it simply links the WiFi to the LAN.
    To connect via WiFi you set a static IP for the wireless device and enter all IP information by hand (IP/Router/Mask/DHCP etc). Laptops can connect fine, and use the network.
    The iPhone connects to the wireless network ok (we tried with security on and off), however, it seems to be unable to successfully use the network. Any attempt to browse a web page using a numeric IP address, or regular IP address, fails.
    Has anyone successfully used the iPhone on a WiFi network with static IP addresses, and a Wireless access point that also uses a static IP address?

    The problem with static IP on iPhone was caused by the IP address being blocked by over-zealous network manager...

  • Why won't my atv2 connect with a static address

    Hello,
    Suddenly, my ATV2 will not connect to the net with a static address.  I even did a restore hoping it would help.  When I log into the router,  i cannot see the atv2 unless I allow a dhcp address.  We're not talking rocket science:
    I have an airport extreme with the mac address entered on the allow list (which isnt relavent if the router can only see it through dhcp)
    192.169.0.25  preferred static address
    255.255.255.0 subnet
    192.168.0.1 dns
    192.168.0.1 router address
    i get the same results wired or wifi.
    Nothing has changed in my configurations but alas I turned on my ATV2 to discover it was not connecting to my network as before.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    192.169.0.25  preferred static address
    255.255.255.0 subnet
    192.168.0.1 dns
    192.168.0.1 router address
    i get the same results wired or wifi.
    Did you mean to write 192.169.0.25??
    The router is on 192.168.0.1, that would mean your ATV is on a different subnet to your router.
    ATV's IP address should be 192.168.0.25 instead, so they are on the same subnet.

  • Aironet 1100 won't show IP Addr. w/ IPSU

    I am trying to set up a Aironet 1100. I enter the mac addr. into the IPSU and get a error - device does not answer. I've reset the device, ng. Tried 2 different computers, ng. I cannot get to the config. page. Any ideas?

    Plan B: Get yourself a copy of tftpd from here:
    http://tftpd32.jounin.net/
    A very lightweight TFTP & DHCP server (amongst other things). Install on a PC and connect to the new AP with a cross lead (or in such a way that the PC and AP are isolated from the main LAN). Start TFTPD and configure a DHCP scope, power on the AP and watch the TFTPD log screen. Connect to the AP with a browser and give it a static address on the main LAN.
    Plan C: Connect a console cable to the AP and reboot it, watch the boot process carefully and you'll see the IP address it leases.

  • Configuring Cisco Aironet 1100 Access Point. Please help!

    Hi all,
    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?
    Please help!
