We have a Cisco Aironet 1130AG Access Point in our Community Centre.
It was originally installed by the County Council, with no security password set.
We were unable to access the AP as the technician who installed it had changed the password from the default, but hadn't recorded it (and has now left).
We therefore did a Factory Reset, which has enabled us to configure the AP. However, there are a few problems:
1) If the AP is re-booted, it loses all the settings;
2) We can't save the Current Startup Configuration;
3) We don't seem to be able to change the default password.
Normal once you factory default an ap you can do all those commands ... Can you post the config ?
The fact that you can't save the configuration or that it gets deleted after a reboot, points to an issue with the nvram, it might be a hardware failure.
However as George said, paste the configuration to take a look, also issue a show ver and let us know which version are you using.
