Objective

To factory reset a Cisco AIR-CAP3502I-E-K9, follow the following. I’m fairly certain this will work with most Aironet access points but I only have this model available. Connect to the access point with a serial/console cable, fire up PuTTY and connect to the correct COM port. Reset AP from ROMMON mode. Type ^reset and press enter. Press y to confirm y ou want to reset the system. AP will again be factory reset and will reboot automatically. Verify AP has been reset a. After AP has finished rebooting, press RETURN to get started. If necessary, provide credentials to Verify User Access.

Cisco Ap Hardware Reset

This article explains how to perform a standard reboot and also how to reset to factory default on the WAP121 and WAP321 access points. Reboot or restart of the network device is made when certain changes in the settings need a reboot or if the device is frozen. Consequences of reboot will result in the deletion of logs in volatile memory. The configuration settings of the network device gets reflected after the restart. Factory default reset is used to remove the running/current configuration settings on the network device and to restore it to the original default settings. Factory default reset is recommended when the whole device needed to be reconfigured and also in case if you forget the password and not able to recover by any means such as telnet.

Applicable Devices Firmware Version

  • WAP121 1.0.3.4 (Download latest)
  • WAP321 1.0.3.4 (Download latest)

Step 1. Hold the Reset button located at the back of the device for approximately ten seconds with a pin.

The Access Point reloads and is set to the default configuration settings.

Step 2. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. Type the default static IP address 192.168.1.245 in the URL bar and press enter. To reach that IP address, be sure that your computer is on the 192.168.1.xxx network.

If your network has a DHCP server, then the factory default IP address configuration of the WAP is DHCP. In the absence of a DHCP server, the access point will fallback to the default static IP address after 60 seconds.

Step 3. Login with the default credentials.The default username is cisco, and the default password is cisco.
