Cisco Access Point Short Notes !

Last year we replaced our old Cisco Aironet Access Points series with the new Ubiquiti AP-LR/AC model. Old switches were then placed in inventory to be used as a backup. Since these cisco AP were configured 8-10 years ago, therefore I had to reset all of them. I made short notes for the process, just in case I need it again in future or maybe useful for anyone else needing similar.

1- Cisco Aironet AP Reset to Factory Default

Note: I used Cisco Aironet AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 access point model in this post

  1. Connect Console cable from the AP Console port to your PC COM port.
  2. Open Hyper Terminal and use below mentioned settings
    9600 baud
    8 data bits
    None parity
    1 stop bit
    Xon/Xoff Flow control .If xon/xoff flow control does not work, use no flow control.
  3. Disconnect power from access point
  4. Press and hold the MODE button while you reconnect power to the access point.
  5. Hold the MODE button until the Status LED turns amber (generally for 2-3 seconds max), and release the button
  6. After the AP reboots, it will come to default settings & you can re-configure the access point by using CLI or GUI. Default IP is 10.0.0.1

  7. The default username and password is cisco/Cisco [ 'C'  is capital in password]
