Cisco 861-W not retaining wireless security settings after power cycle

Hi Guys,

I have a Cisco 861-W. After a Power Cycle, it retains all settings, Hostname, User Name/Password, DHCP, DNS, VPN, etc. However, it does not retain wireless security settings, WPA2.  The SSID is retained. When I configure WPA2, write to startup config, it works fine until power cycle.

Any thoughts would be appreciated,
Thanks!

How are you writing the config?  Are you doing it from the GUI or CLI?

If you are doing it from the CLI, make sure you do:  copy run start and not just write mem

Thanks for the response Sage.  I did originally configure via GUI. Per your suggestion, I made WPA2 changes to Wireless interface. Confirmed working as configured. Did a copy run start via CLI, (putty), power cycled router. Unfortunately, WPA2 settings were not retained. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the time!

When you telnet in to change the AP settings, are you telnetting into the router IP or the AP ip?

I was telnetting to router IP.  Looks like from router IP I need to change service-module session to wlan-ap0 or as you were indicating, telnet directly to AP and copy run start. I apologize. First Cisco wireless device I've tried to configure. It will be Saturday before I can give this a shot. I'll update ASAP. Thanks Mattvmotas!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Mattvmotas. Connecting to AP and performing Copy Run Start resolved issue.  How I got as far as I did is a mystery.  :-)

Appreciate the time!
