AP 1600 Configuration

Hello All, 

I'm having trouble resetting my wireless access point back to factory default settings.  I'm using AIR-CAP1602.  MAC OSX 10.10.3


Any help will be greatly appreciated.  


Thanks, Please let me know. 


hi, Is this AP running



Is this AP running autonomous software or is it controller based. If controller based, you can clear all config from the controller. If autonomous, hold down mode button while powering up AP. When LED is red, release mode button.

Resetting to Default Settings

Resetting to Default Settings Using the MODE Button

Follow these steps to reset the access point to factory default settings using the access point MODE button:

Step 1 Disconnect power (the power jack for external power or the Ethernet cable for in-line power) from the access point.

Step 2 Press and hold the MODE button while you reconnect power to the access point.

Step 3 Hold the MODE button until the Status LED turns amber (approximately 1 to 2 seconds), and release the button. All access point settings return to factory defaults.

Resetting to Default Settings Using the GUI

Follow these steps to return to the default settings using the access point GUI:

Step 1 Open your Internet browser. The web-browser interface is fully compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6.0 on Windows 98, 2000 and XP platforms, and with Netscape Version 7.0 on Windows 98, 2000, XP, and Solaris platforms.

Step 2 Enter the wireless device IP address in the browser address line and press Enter. An Enter Network Password window appears.

Step 3 Enter your username in the User Name field. The default username is Cisco.

Step 4 Enter the wireless device password in the Password field and press Enter. The default password is Cisco. The Summary Status page appears.

Step 5 Click System Software and the System Software screen appears.

Step 6 Click System Configuration and the System Configuration screen appears.

Step 7 Click the Reset to Defaults button to reset all settings, including the IP address, to factory defaults. To reset all settings except the IP address to defaults, click the Reset to Defaults (Except IP) button.
