Access Point 1130 AG

Hello all,

I have an Access Point AIR-LAP1130 AG that I cannot get into. Username and password is not working. I need to get the configs off of it or reset the password. As far as I know, there is no way to recover or change the password off of the AP am I correct? if so, I gained access via console, but obviously not getting far at all. Is there a way I can extract the image off of it via console connection?

Your AP is with a LWAPP image. You are associating it with a WLC, right

lwapp and capwap. I dont know the access for WLC either. Previous admin decided not to leave any passwords for fun.

in LWAPP mode, all configurations are inherited from the controller. We need to check the configurations on the controller here not on the AP.

Do you need to save a copy of the IOS or what exactly are we trying to achieve.

i am trying to extract that config and somehow change the password. I just dont want to reset the AP to default and reconfigure the entire thing

Thats not possible. The LAP receives the configurations from the WLC on each boot, so we need to get the configuration from the controller.

can I at least extract the image so I can take a look at the settings and configurations so I know how to properly configure it from scratch?

The AP image doesn't contain the settings. But we can backup the image

The AP's default user/pass is Cisco/Cisco if it's not been changed at the WLC, but that's useless really.

You can recover the password of the WLC if you reload it.  Console to the WLC and wait for it to give the User: prompt.  Type Restore-Password at the prompt and hit Enter.  You will now be able to change the password and leave the config intact.

The default user is admin, password is blank (as in not set).
