I have been given two Cisco 1121G Aironet Access Points which I want to reconfigure so I can use for other purposes.
I want to do this without resetting to factory settings as all I want to do is change the SSID name and leave all the other settings as is.
I have downloaded and read the manual which basically says to connect your pc to the access point via a standard CAT5 lead or a crossover cable and switch it on. If the access point cannot get an IP address via DHCP it will default to 10.0.0.1 and your PC will pick up an address. Then yu can browse to 10.0.0.1 and configure the access point. Alternatively give your PC an address of 10.0.0.2 and hook it up and then browse to 10.0.0.1
Unfortunatey this isnt working. I cannot ping or browse to the access point at all and therefore cannot configure it.
I have tried getting an address via DHCP with a standard and a crossover cable.
I have tried manually setting the PC address to 10.0.0.2 with subnets 255.0.0.0, 255.255.0.0, 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.224 with standard and crossover cables but still cannot connect.
If I hook it up to a switch I can connect to it wirelessly no problem and browse the network but still cannot find its IP address.
When connected to it through the switch like that I have used the IPSU utility to search for it via it's MAC address and still no luck.
I am at the end of my tether and would greatly apreciate any help
