Release Notes for the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine
These release notes are for use with the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE).
These release notes provide:
Release 1.1 of the WLSE contains one new feature which allows you to download firmware for access points and devices to the WLSE, and to upload the firmware to the devices.
Note Although every effort has been made to validate the accuracy of the information in the printed and electronic documentation, you should also review the WLSE documentation on Cisco.com for any updates.
Use these publications to learn how to install and use the WLSE:
•Hardware Installation and Configuration Guide for the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine (DOC-7814089=)—Includes extensive information about installing the WLSE and performing an initial configuration.
•User Guide for the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine (OL-2907-01)—Includes information on configuring and using the WLSE.
•CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine online help—Contains all of the information available in User Guide for the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine. This ensures that you have complete information even if you do not have the manual readily available while using the WLSE.

Recovery CD Information
The Hardware Installation and Configuration Guide for the CiscoWorks 1105 Wireless LAN Solution Engine incorrectly states that a recovery CD is included with your WLSE. This is not true of the WLSE 1.1 Release.

Technical Assistance Center
The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
Cisco TAC inquires are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:
•Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
•Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
•Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
•Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
Which Cisco TAC resource you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.
Cisco TAC Web Site
You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:
If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:
If you have Internet access, it is recommended that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco TAC Escalation Center
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.
To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
