Cisco Aironet 1040 series step-by-step configuration

08519826 used Ask the Experts™
Hi Experts,

I have a brand new Cisco access point and connected to with a console cable to the unit. How do I configure IP, gateway and web interface, so I can then configure the unit from the web UI. I am not particularly strong with Cisco CLI.

I've gone as far as:

ap.#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
ap.(config)#interface bvi 1
ap.(config-if)#ip address

Please post remaining steps.

Thank you.

You're ready to go. Looks like you already know the AP's address, just enter that into your browser and sign in with the default Cisco Cisco. From there you can configure a static IP address and the rest of the network info, and carry on. Make sure your PC is on the same subnet as the AP of course.


Sorry about long overdue response. Been on holidays and arrived just yesterday.

Thanks for your help.
