Cisco 881W - password recovery for AP module

Does anyone know how to do password recovery on the AP module within a Cisco 881W router?  I'm trying to make a change to an SSID config and we lost the password on the AP.  When I do a password recovery on the router, it doesn't wipe out the config of the AP.  I try to session into the AP and can't get past the username/password prompt.  I haven't been able to find a document on Cisco's web.

Did you try this?

service-module wlan-ap 0 reset default-config

and then reset the AP module
service-module wlan-ap 0 reset

Thanks Kevin.  That was exactly what I needed to know.

I have this issue and when i

I have this issue and when i reset as instructed above, i still cannot set boot preferences within the AP. I cannot enter global configuration mode of the AP. All of these attempts are met with ERROR!!! Command is disabled. I have the newest ".tar" file installed in flash of the ap but it will not load it and it will not allow any other configuration changes.

Re: I have this issue and when i

I've been having the same issue. I get into the ap session, but can get pass the enable command because of an old configuration I can't get rid of. Did anyone ever figure this out??

Yes, it should reset the AP config to factory default so you should be able to login back with default user/pass Cisco/Cisco.

I have a similar problem. I can actually log into the AP module; however, when I type enable I forgot the password and cant reconfig the AP. How do I recover that?

Hello,

 

I cannot figure out which post belongs where in this thread, but do you have a user and password configured on the 881W ? What if you use that for the AP ?

 

E.g.:

 

username admin privilege 15 password 0 cisco

 

and then use admin/cisco on the AP ?
