How to change default admin password on Cisco Aironet 1040

How do I change the default username and password on the Cisco Aironet 1040. There is a default set and I want to change that to secure the device. I've checked the manual and can't seem to find the directions. Any ideas?

Hi Brian,

If this AP is already registered with a WLC then you can change it via WLC.

In WLC GUI, go to Wireless -> Select the AP -> Credential -> Override Global Credential-> Update username/pw/enable pw

In WLC CLI, you can configure it like this. If it is for all APs, then select all, otherwise AP name.

(WLC3) >config ap mgmtuser add username admin password Cisco123 secret Cisco123 ?

all            Applies the configuration to every AP that does not have a specific user name.

     Enter the name of the Cisco AP.

(WLC3) >config ap mgmtuser add username password secret

(WLC3) >save config

Are you sure you want to save? (y/n) y

If it is Autonomous AP you can configure using the "username xxxx password xxx" IOS command

HTH
