Cisco AP

Hi Experts,
I have a Ubiquiti M5 Nanobridge connected by cable to TP-Link router for WiFi, I decided to replace a TP-Link router with Cisco 600 AP but the problem is I still cannot get access to the internet.

Things I did,
I assign IP to the Cisco AP WAN port like 192.168.1.21 because the other port on nanobridge is 192.168.1.20.

I active DHCP server on Cisco AP.

Also I tried to leave it on default.

Any help will be appreciated.

Some short questions:
a. Is the Cisco's DHCP server leasing IP addresses to the Wi-Fi clients?
b. Is the default gateway set at the DHCP server level?
c. Are the DNS servers set at the DHCP server level?
d. Can you post a Screen Shot of the command "IPCONFIG /ALL" of a Wi-Fi client?

Thank you.

Considering you have only one SSID named lexmark1, could you check if the following configs are present.
AP(Config)## configuration for the SSID
AP(Config)#dot11 ssid lexmark1
AP(Config-ssid)#auth open
AP(Config-ssid)#auth key wpa ver 2
AP(Config-ssid)#wpa-pak ascii password
AP(Config-ssid)#guest-mode
AP(Config-ssid)#exit

AP(Config)## Associating SSID with the Radio interface
AP(Config)#Int dot11 0
AP(Config-if)#encryption mode ciphers aes
AP(Config-if)#ssid lexmark1
AP(Config-if)#channel le 1 6 11
AP(Config-if)#no shut

AP(Config)## Configuring for LAN connection.
AP(Config)#Int bv1
AP(Config-if)#ip address 192.168.1.10 255.255.255.0
AP(Config-if)#ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
AP(Config-if)#no shut
AP(Config-if)#exit

Open in new window


This configuration are working on my AP1252, but should be present in all Autonomous APs.

Here is the Cisco document on GUI Configuration - Link Here

Using a Cisco 600 AP isn't really the way you should do it.  The 600 AP is an OfficeExtend AP and isn't designed to do what you're asking it to do.  It should be linked to a Cisco WLC - which I guess you don't have, and it shouldn't be used as a replacement for a router, but rather 'with' a router.  Therefore it won't work.

@Miftaul - the 600 AP isn't autonomous - it's lightweight to an extent although it has some user-configurable items and is intended to be taken offsite in order to allow a corporate SSID to be broadcast at home.

Thanks craigbeck, I never worked on 600AP. Actually didn't know about this feature. Good Learning point.

Hi craigbeck,

Is the internet feed connected to the TP-Link router, or do you get the internet feed via the Nanobridge link from somewhere else?

The internet feed via the nanobridge link from the ISP tower.

Craig BeckCommented:
If you change the Nanobridge to AP mode it won't link to the AP where the internet is located unless you use WDS.

I think you're still going to need a router though so this probably won't solve your problem.
