Just bought 3 1142 standalone AP's to replace 3 older Cisco AP's. My knowledge of Cisco is intermediate, at best. Need some help getting these configured. I used another thread from someone else who was trying to set up WPA2, but i could not get my devices to connect to the SSID i set up, so i decided to do a factory reset and start over. Maybe it was because i tried it from the GUI first, then from the CLI, because i couldn't choose WPA2 from the express setup.

I can pull up the GUI, and can also hyperterminal into the AP.

Native VLAN is VLAN 1 on my switch. I trunked the port on the switch side, as i do plan on having more than one SSID, which will be on seperate VLAN's. I'm trying to set up the primary SSID first, that would be on VLAN 1



this is what I did originally:

conf t
dot11 ssid companyname
 authentication open
 authentication key-management wpa version 2
 guest-mode
 wpa-psk ascii <password key here>
 exit

int dot11radio0
 encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
 ssid companyname
 no shutdown
 exit

int dot11radio1
 encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
 ssid companyname
 no shutdown
 exit
exit

I could see this SSID being broadcast, but could not connect from any device ... phone, notebook, ipad.

As I said, I did a factory reset because maybe something is super screwed up now.

What am I doing wrong? someone walk me through this from scratch, keeping in mind i want to add another SSID eventually on a different VLAN?
