The (autonomous) AP is in charge of mappinga service set identifier (SSID) to a VLAN. In 802.11 terms, this is known as

mapping a basic service set (BSS) to a distribution system (DS).

On bootup, the autonomous AP will take the following actions to assign itself an IP address

-Request an IP through DHCP

-If DHCP fails, it assigns itself to

Describe a Bridged Virtual Interface (BVI)

Logicalinterface used to bridge the physical wired and wireless interfaces

Autonomous AP GUI login default credentials

username - blank

password - Cisco

To use the Easy Setup Page, the following must be configured:

■ Hostname

■ Method of IP address assignment

■ For a static address: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway

■ An administrative username and password■ SNMP community

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Repeater"

The AP will associate with another nearby AP automatically, to repeat orextend that AP’s cell coverage. The Ethernet port will be disabled.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Root Bridge"

The AP uses its Ethernet port to connect to bridge the wired network toa remote wireless bridge over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint link. No wirelessclients will be allowed to associate.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Non-Root Bridge"

The AP will act as a remote wireless bridge and will connect to a rootbridge AP over a wireless link.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Workgroup Bridge"

The AP will use one radio to associate with a nearby Cisco accesspoint, as if it is a wireless client. The AP bridges between its radio and its Ethernet port.You can use an AP in workgroup bridge (WGB) mode to provide wireless client capabilityto wired-only devices.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Universal Workgroup Bridge"

The AP will act as a workgroup bridge to associate withCisco and non-Cisco access points.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Scanner"

The AP will use its radio to scan channels and collect data.

Describe the Autonomous AP Role "Spectrum"

The AP will devote its radios to scanning the frequency band and collectinginformation about RF usage and interference.

Describe Aironet Extentions

Cisco proprietary information elements that Cisco APs can use tointeract with Cisco-compatible wireless clients. For example, an AP can provide informationabout its current client load so that potential clients can choose the least busy AP. Aironetextensions are enabled by default.

At this point of the configuration, you do not necessarily have a functional AP becausethe radios are still disabled. To enable a radio,

navigate to the AP’s home page and selectNetwork > Network Interface > Radio0-802.11N2.4GHz or Radio1-802.11N5GHz.Click the Settings tab to open it, and then select the Enable button next to Enable Radio.

To convert an AP from Autonomous to Lightweight, you can use one of the following methods,

■ Use the Cisco Prime Infrastructure application; all wireless controllers and lightweightAPs can be monitored and managed from this one application. The autonomous AP mustfirst be managed, then it can be converted.

■ Use the archive command from the autonomous AP’s CLI.

What is the CLI command to upgrade the image?

archive download-sw /overwrite /force-reload {tftp:|ftp:}//location/image-name

k9w8 vs. k9w7

If a filename contains k9w8, it is a lightweight image. If it contains k9w7, it is an autonomous image.

If you are using an FTP server, you should specifythe FTP username and password that the AP will use with the following commands:

ip ftp username _username_

ip ftp password _password_
