Cisco Aironet 1231G not allowing confiure menu/ Cisco LWAPP Controller
Posted on 2007-02-22
We purchased a new Cisco Aironet 1231G. I have worked with the 1200 series before but never this model. When I log into the console, I can get to enable mode but the unit does not take a "conf t" command. It does get an address and when I try to web into the address, I get no response. Pings to it resolve, albeit DHCP and not statig (no configure menus). I notice when consoled the message:
LWAPP_CLIENT_ERROR: lwapp_name_lookup - Could Not resolve
Do these new models require some type of controller (like the SonicWALL SonicPoints) or am I missing something obvious? I have scoured Cisco site and by my interpretation of the readings, there should be some type of wireless controller device. If that is the case, and I don't want to use an 1100 series AP, is there an alternative?
