Yes I tried that before your post and I was able to see the AP boot process. It worked once, and I haven't been able to replicate it again. Which leads me to beleive I might have a faulty USB to Lan serial cable, which I just purchased couple of months ago, one of these ->DSD TECH SH-RJ45A USB to RJ45 Console Cable with FTDI Chip for Cisco NETGEAR Routers/Switches Support Windows Linux Mac OS<-

I just wrote to the company as they have a year warranty, so fingers crossed.

So I bought another USB to Lan serial Cisco cable from Amazon.

I Plugged the cable into the USB of my PC and it loadded it's driver sucessfully. I then plugged the Lan side into the Console hole of the AP. I opened PuTTy and set it up as per other how tow's on here. I pressed the mode button and plugged in the Lan cable from my POE switch into the Lan side of the AP. Waited for the RED led to start and released the mode switch with no result on the Putty.

 

I've tried releasing the mode button at different intervals from 5 sec to 15, 20 before the red led and still no difference.

Any ideas why it doesn't just post in Putty?

3. Apply simple autonomous AP config like below

Thank you so much Rasika,

Your help was invaluble. Ive them configured and up and running.

 

For the record and assistance of others who come across this post, the problem of my Cisco console cable not working ended up to be the incorrect Speed (baud) in PuTTy. I did read in apost somewhere here to configure the Speed at around 12600. It was wrong.

 

This PuTTy configuration worked for me :-

Serial line (What ever your USB number is that the USB side of the serial cable is in) which you can find out in device manager.

Speed (baud) 9600.  Data8.  Stop Bits 1.  Parity None.  Flow Control  Xon/Xoff.

 

Again thanks to Rasika.

 

Humph
