Hi,
  I've mesed up the settings to one of my WAP's. I need to set it back to factory settings. I see a small button on the inside of the device that is only accessible with a pencil or paper clip. It looks like a hard reset button.
I also have access to the Console and have the Enable password.
thanks

You can reset the AP to the factory defaults through the wireless LAN (WLAN) controller (WLC). For the reset, the LAP should be registered to the WLC.

Complete these steps:

   1. From the WLC GUI, click Wireless. The Wireless tab provides access to the Cisco WLAN Solution wireless network configuration.
   2. Choose Access Points > Cisco APs, and then click Detail in order to navigate to the window for the specific AP.
   3. Click Clear Config at the bottom of this window. This clears the configuration on the LAP and resets it to the factory defaults.
