Hi all, never here... Having a bit of an issue, hoping someone has knowledge on this..

 

I have a Cisco AP-1262N

 

I am trying to set it up at home to be either an AP or repeater to increase signal strength..

 

There is a billion options and I cant get it to connect to my internet to bring the radios online..

 

Can anyone help with this situation at all???

 

Thanks so much!

Setting up an AP should be as easy as connecting a ethernet cable to the WAN/Internet/whatevertheycallitthesedays ethernet port, connecting to the access point, and editing the password and SSID (network name). Setting up the AP as a repeater will require a more complicated setup process, but I can explain it if you need me to (example need: no ethernet cable where you are installing the access point).

If you require further details please let me know

Edit note: I thought that was a router at first. Slightly changed post to better explain how to configure a wireless access point.

I have a Netgear router already.. the AP is connected to one of the switch ports that are in there but It wont come online so not sure what options are needed to get it to come online and function.. Both radios are Red down arrows.  I can browse to the AP on the network no issues just not sure how to config probably for what I want?

alright, give me some time to figure out what the interface looks like so I can guide you through configuration.

Ok that is not an issue, no ER. I am moving anyway, But i wanted to get it online and working so when I move i can reset and start over...

 

I guess setting up as an AP is fine with me, whatever is easiest and can get online. I was just thinking as using a repeater to just boost signal that is all

Yes, this is clearly one of Cisco's enterprise-level access points, so it has a lot of options that you shouldn't ever need to use. Have you been able to open the access point's web configuration page?

gave a static IP as well.

Did you configure the router's DHCP server to skip that IP? If not you need to do that before you end up with 2 devices with the same IP.

2.4 and 5gh radios are down.

those should be set to UP for starters... I never did work with wireless in IOS though so I'm not sure if the commands are any different than for ethernet...

Well I can leave it dhcp in the express setup but i read better to give it a static. I didnt configure it to skip that But i can.

 

I dont know how to set them up.. I when i click on enable they will never enable because it acts like it cant connect and get out to the internet. That is where I am stuck when you get to the network interfaces, there are a million options as well for the radios lol

Since your using static IP, I have to ask if you set a gateway. If you didn't configure that, the AP will not be able to access the internet. Please set the gateway address to your router's IP if you have not already done so.

Ok, give me a day or two and I will be back with you with either settings to change or a series of IOS commands to run that should fix the issue. Don't forget to remove the static IP from the router's range.
