Cisco AIR-CAP3502I-A-K9 Serial Connection


I have two of the listed Access points, I am able to get them to connect to my WLC, but when I connect a serial cable I am not able to get access to the CLI.  I am using putty with the cisco rollover cable connected to a usb->rs232 adapter.

Putty Settings:
    serial line: COM3
    Speed: 9600
    Data Bits: 8
    Stop Bits: 1
    Parity: None
    Flow Control: None

When I connect if I hold enter I get output from the screen like the baud is wrong, I have gone through every standard baud rate from 110 - 921600

Any ideas?

It seems that yuu ordered CAPWAP device, so it has no real CLI, it is working only with WLC, what is your part number?

It seems that is CAPWAP AP, so you not need CLI config
This is light weight access point. You can't interact with it via cli. The current IOS is design to work under WLC. If you want to configure it manually, you have to convert it into undefended AP first.
