Configure Setup Wizard on a Mobile Device
The first time that you log into the Access Point with your portable device or after it has been reset to factory default settings, the Access Point Setup Wizard with mobile style appears. This helps you perform the initial configurations. To configure the Access Point using the wizard, complete the following steps.
Step 1. The default SSID under factory default mode is CiscoSB-Setup. Connect your mobile device to the Access Point SSID and enter in the pre-shared key, cisco123. Once you are connected to the Access Point, launch a web browser and enter the IP address of the WAP or the domain name if it was given one. A web page with login fields is displayed. Enter the default Username and Password: cisco. Click Login. The Access Point Setup Wizard is displayed.
Step 2. Click Next to continue with the Setup Wizard.
Step 3. In the Configure IP address window, the Dynamic IP Address (DHCP) (Recommended) is configured by default to receive an IP address from a DHCP server, or you may click Static to configure the IP address manually. Click Next to continue.
Step 4. To join an existing cluster, enter the cluster group name and click Next to continue. A summary page with the cluster information displayed. Confirm the data and click Submit.
To create a new cluster, click Create, enter a cluster name.
In this example, we will be pressing Skip > to skip the Single Point Setup.
Step 5. In the Configure Device – Set Password window, enter a new password and re-enter the password in the Confirm Password field. Then press Next to configure the Wireless Network.
Step 6. Select Radio 1 (5 GHz) or Radio 2 (2.4 GHz) to configure your wireless network. Enter a Network Name which serves as the SSID for the default wireless network. Then enter a security key (WPA2 Personal – AES security type is by default). Lastly, enter the VLAN ID for traffic received on the wireless network. It is recommended to that you assign a different VLAN ID than the default value 1.
If you want to apply the same configuration to Radio 2, check the check box to apply the same configuration or switch to another radio tab and repeat this step to configure again. Press Next to continue.
Step 7. If you want to configure Captive Portal, click Yes >. Otherwise, click Skip > to go to the Summary page. In this example, we will not be configuring Captive Portal.
If you have selected Yes, follow the steps below:
Select Radio 1 (5 GHz) or Radio 2 (2.4 GHz)
Enter a Security key (WPA2 personal – AES is the security type by default)
Specify a VLAN ID for the guest network. It is recommended that the guest network VLAN ID should be different from the management VLAN ID.
Optionally, you may specify a redirect URL with a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) to redirect specified URL after authentication.
Step 8. In the Summary window, review the configured settings. Click Back to reconfigure one or more settings. If the configuration is correct, click Submit > to save.
The WAP device is configured successfully. You should see the two SSIDs that you have just configured in your list of Wi-Fi networks on your mobile device. To configure other features on your WAP, you are required to log in again.
