IOS version of the embedded access-point

The AP802 embedded wireless access points has it's own IOS independant from the IOS of the router (flash:/ap802-k9w7-mx.124-25d.JAX1 in Packet Tracer). This AP802 IOS can be downloaded from a TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol), unbundled onto AP flash (flash:1:), using the archive tar /xtract command.server onto the router's main flash partition, and used to configure AP to boot new IOS image.

The Cisco 819 embedded access point is not configured through the router's running-config. After setting up an IP address to the wlan-ap0 router interface, connect to the integrated AP802 wireless access point using the following command in privileged mode :

Router# service-module wlan-ap0 session


Detailled configuration :

Router(config)# interface wlan-ap0
Router(config-if)# ip address
Router(config-if)# no shut
Router(config-if)# exit

Router# service-module wlan-ap0 session

The following configuration steps are required to configure a working guest SSID

  • Define the SSID name (dot11 ssid SSID_NAME)
  • Configure the SSID in guest mode (guest-mode)
  • Configure the SSID authentication method (auhentication open / open eap / network-eap )
  • Link the configured ssid to a Dot11Radio interface
