Do you have to download cisco IOS 12.3(#)JA first?

i can access the command console through hyper terminal, but i think i only have limited access, is it still possible to turn  radio on?

Do you need to put antennas on first? (still ordering those)

thanks for any help

I don't think you need to put the antenna first. Try these from console.

configure terminal
interface dot11radio 0
ssid <name>
no shut
