Note To use WPA or fast roaming, access points must use Cisco IOS Release 12.2(11)JA or later. To use radio management (RM), access points must use Cisco IOS Release 12.2(13)JA or later. To use QoS and WMM, access points must use Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)JA or later.


All necessary infrastructure devices such as access points, servers, gateways, and user databases must be properly configured for any authentication type you plan to enable on the client.

Important Notes

Customized Installation Images (Notice to IT Professionals)


Caution Use caution when bundling the client adapter software into a customized installation image. If the registry settings are modified, the software may not install and uninstall properly.

Firmware Is Upgraded Automatically

The Install Wizard automatically upgrades the client adapter firmware to the version included in the Install Wizard file.


Note Applications such as AirMagnet and Wild Packets may fail after the firmware is upgraded. To resolve this problem, use ACU to downgrade the firmware to the previous version. Older versions of client adapter firmware are available from the Software Center on Cisco.com.


Reboot Required When Uninstalling ACU


Caution When you uninstall ACU, make sure you reboot your computer when prompted. Otherwise, the system may be rendered unable to boot, displaying the message "The Logon User Interface DLL cswGina.dll failed to load. Contact your system administrator to replace the DLL or restore the original DLL."

Uninstalling Software Components

All profiles are deleted if you use the Uninstall All Components option on the Cisco Aironet Wireless LAN Client Adapter Installation Wizard screen to uninstall the client adapter software. Cisco recommends that you use the Profile Manager's export feature to save your profiles before uninstalling the software.

Inserting and Removing Client Adapters

The following rules apply when inserting and removing client adapters:

If you start ACU while a client adapter of one radio type is inserted (such as a 350 series PC card) and then eject the card and replace it with a card of another radio type (such as a CB20A PC-Cardbus card), ACU displays "Your Wireless LAN Adapter is not inserted" until ACU is shut down and restarted.

The profiles for PC-Cardbus cards are tied to the slot in which the card is inserted. Therefore, you must always insert your PC-Cardbus card into the same slot, create profiles for both slots, or export the profiles for one slot and import them for the other slot.

New EAP-SIM Supplicant Available

A new EAP-SIM supplicant is available for download from Cisco.com. This new supplicant is an upgrade to the one included in the Install Wizard file. It provides new features, supports more recent versions of the EAP-SIM draft standard, and can be used with standard GSM-SIM cards as well as Gemplus SIM+ smartcards.

The new supplicant overwrites any previous EAP-SIM supplicant settings. If you plan to install the Cisco Aironet Install Wizard file after the new supplicant is installed, either perform an express installation or make sure that the EAP-SIM option is not selected on the Custom Installation screen. Otherwise, the EAP-SIM supplicant included in the Install Wizard file overwrites the new supplicant's settings.

You can access the latest EAP-SIM supplicant at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/access-registrar-encrypted

Windows Wireless Network Connection Icon Shows Unavailable Connection (Windows XP Only)

If your computer is running Windows XP and you configured your client adapter using ACU, the Windows Wireless Network Connection icon in the Windows system tray may be marked with a red X and show an unavailable connection even though a wireless connection exists. This condition is caused by a conflict between ACU and Windows XP's wireless network settings. Simply ignore the Windows icon and use the ACM icon to check the status of your client adapter's wireless connection.

Supporting Documentation

The Cisco Aironet 350 and CB20A Wireless LAN Client Adapters Installation and Configuration Guide for Windows (part number OL-1394-09) provides detailed installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information for Install Wizard 1.5 and its software components:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/airo_350/350cards/windows/index.htm


Note Install Wizard 1.5 and its software components are not supported for use with Cisco Aironet 340 series client adapters.


New and Changed Information

Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia

Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) is a component of the IEEE 802.11e wireless LAN standard for quality of service (QoS). It specifically supports priority tagging and queuing. QoS is an access point feature that enables networking professionals to provide preferential treatment to certain traffic at the expense of other traffic. Without QoS, the access point offers best-effort service to each packet, regardless of the packet contents or size. Implementing QoS in a wireless LAN makes network performance more predictable and bandwidth usage more effective.

Cisco recommends that you enable WMM if your computer is running a time-sensitive application for QoS-aware clients such as voice or video (for example, Cisco IP SoftPhone).

QoS and WMM must be enabled on the access point to which the client will associate. These features are supported on the access point in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(2)JA or later. Refer to the documentation for your access point for instructions on enabling these features.

WMM is supported automatically in client adapter firmware 5.60.08, PC/LM/PCI card driver 8.6, and mini PCI/CB20A card driver 3.9, which are included in Install Wizard 1.5. However, you must enable the Windows QoS Packet Scheduler to ensure WMM support. Follow the instructions in the Cisco Aironet 350 and CB20A Wireless LAN Client Adapters Installation and Configuration Guide for Windows (OL-1394-09) to enable the QoS Packet Scheduler:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/airo_350/350cards/windows/index.htm


Note The QoS Packet Scheduler must be installed before you can enable it. It comes preinstalled on Windows XP; however, you must install it on Windows 2000.

Table 1 Software Components and Their Parameters 

Component or Parameter
Description

Firmware

Installs the firmware version included in the Install Wizard file.

Default: Checked

Disable Firmware Checking

The Disable Firmware Checking parameter affects the firmware that is bundled with the driver, not the firmware that is included in the Install Wizard. It controls whether the driver (whenever it loads) installs the firmware with which it is bundled.

Note The driver loads each time you insert a client adapter or reboot your computer.

Options: Yes or No

Default: Yes

Disable Firmware Checking
Description

Yes

Prevents the driver from installing the firmware with which it is bundled, enabling the client adapter to retain its current firmware version.

No

Causes the driver to install the firmware with which it is bundled if that firmware is newer than the firmware that is currently installed in the client adapter.

Note The Disable Firmware Checking parameter is functionally equivalent to the Automatically Load New Firmware When NDIS Driver Is Updated parameter on the ACU Preferences screen. The parameter that is set last is the one that governs how the driver behaves.

Opening a TAC Case

Using the online TAC Case Open Tool is the fastest way to open P3 and P4 cases. (P3 and P4 cases are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Case Open Tool automatically recommends resources for an immediate solution. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your case will be assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The online TAC Case Open Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

For P1 or P2 cases (P1 and P2 cases are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded) or if you do not have Internet access, contact Cisco TAC by telephone. Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to P1 and P2 cases to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a case by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)

TAC Case Priority Definitions

To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established case priority definitions.

Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is "down" or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Priority 2 (P2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Priority 3 (P3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Priority 4 (P4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
