Cisco 887W WLAN configuration

I have just purchased this device, came with IOS 15.1(1)T2

All the configuration advice is for 12.4, and this version is drastically different!

I can't enable or set up a bridged wireless network (same VLAN and subnet on LAN and WLAN, I can't even get the thing to broadcast an SSID.

Oh, and changing the default username and password when you log in doesn't change the internal AP one, which took some finding out; and if you try to create a BVI1 interface it gets a DHCP address from the LAN and THAT starts up with the default cisco/cisco. Maddening.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Gareth,

The configuration is pretty much similar but you need to it mostly through "service-module wlan-ap0"

Here is a document might help:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/routers/access/1900/software/configuration/guide/wlan_external_docbase_0900e4b180bcda22_4container_external_docbase_0900e4b181547f63.html

Network Group

you mean this one?

"Forbidden File or Application"

very useful.

When I follow the instructions in the 12.4 IOS version, when I attempt to run the service-module commmand I get "connection refused 2002"

That page apparently needs a Cisco account to access.

You need to assign ip address on wlan interface and "no shutdown" to be able to connect with service-module,
Something like:

router(config)# interface wlan-ap0
router(config-if)# ip unnumbered vlan

#### you can use a different ip address as well instead of unnumbered

router(config-if)# interface vlan1
router(config-if)# ip address 10.10.0.30 255.255.255.0

router# service-module wlan-ap0 session
Trying 10.21.0.20, 2002 ... Open
ap>

To switch between Wlan and Router:


Wireless Device

1. Control-Shift-6 x

Router

2. disconnect

3. Press Enter twice.


From memory below are the configuration on radio:

ap#configure terminal
ap(config)#dot11 ssid ssidname
ap(config-dot11)# vlan 1
ap(config-dot11)# authentication open
aap(config-dot11)# authentication key-management wpa
ap(config-dot11)# guest-mode
ap(config-dot11)# wpa-psk ascii

ap(config)#interface dot11radio {0| 1}
ap(config-if)# ssid ssidname

ap(config-if)# encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
ap(config-if)# encryption vlan 1 mode ciphers aes-ccm

ap(config)# no shutdown
ap(config)#end

When I follow the instructions , when I attempt to run the service-module commmand I get "connection refused 2002"

Please post your config .
