Accessing the Wireless Interface
Note The Wireless feature is displayed on the Cisco CP Express only if your router supports a Wireless Access Point (WAP).
You can access the Wireless feature of the Cisco CP Express End User View by choosing the Wireless link.
Cisco CP Express End User View supports Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) encryption, which uses the ciphers aes-ccm tkip encryption mode.
Based on the WAP settings, there may be variations in the way the Wireless feature functions. The variations may occur when:
1. Accessing the Wireless feature for the first time—When you click the Wireless link, it tries to automatically establish a connection to the wireless interface without prompting for a username and password, if one of these two options is true:
•Your router is a factory fresh router.
•Factory default username and password of the WAP have not been changed.
The factory default username/password of the wireless router is cisco/cisco.
2. Password of WAP has changed—You are prompted to specify the username and password of the WAP if the factory default username and password (cisco/cisco) have been changed.
3. Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) is enabled, but the username and password of WAP have changed
•If you are using the Mozilla Firefox browser, Cisco CP Express will prompt you to specify the username and password of the WAP.
•If you are using the Google Chrome browser, you will encounter a "401 Unauthorized" error.
Handling 401 Unauthorized error
