I bought a Cisco Access point off Ebay for my house. Its a 1200 Series AIR-AP1231G-E-K9 running IOS 12.3 (8).
Probably being really dumb here, but I'm having some trouble configuring it!
I reset the device by holding down the mode button and rebooting. I plugged it into my router with a Ethernet cable and it didn't obtain an IP from DHCP so I gave the fast Ethernet interface a static address on my LAN. After that I can't ping or access it through a web browser. I have tried connecting my laptop directly to the AP and giving it a static address but I still can't ping or access via the web.
Let me know if there is something else which needs to be done to get this baby going?
