    Hi all

    Here's one for you, I have a Cisco Aironet access point thats not been used for about 5-6 years, now that i've found a use for it I need to access it to re-configure.

    I dont have a console cable for it and I cant remember the IP address, I can however remember the Network Key and get a good signal strength from it and can connect wirelessly

    As it's an AP it's not DHCP enabled and I cant think of a way to get the IP does anyone have any ideas, I've tried NetStumbler and nMap with no joy.

    Cheers

    if you can get hold of it you can use a program called IPSU. this is a cisco program that allows you to enter the devices mac address and it will find its IP for you.

    Not sure if this is a paid for program (don't think so), but its only a few Kb.

    Cheers Simon, I've got this and it's not working, just says that the device did not answer. I think it's due to the AP being on a different Subnet.

    Thanks anyway..... anyone else!!!!!

    Nope!, there is a hole on the back but even with the worlds longest paperclip there's nothing on the otherside of it. I can reset via a console cable however I dont have one for the AP, The cable I have is off a cisco switch and the serial port is female - I need a male version.

    a) get a console cable

    b) although you don't know the ip, do you remember the subnet it was on? if so just plug it into a switch or hub with nothing else in t, and putyour PC on the sme subet and the prograshould then work. if its a class c subnet you could also do a ipscan, others woul take an age.

    Just thought I would say thanks to all your suggestions and bring you up to date, although I could remember the username and password details I was still unable to obtain the IP I tried all kinds of IP scanners etc all to no avail. In the end it turns out that I had a serial cable hidden in the shed and stumbled across it this weekend whilst searching for something else. decided to give it a try on the AP and I was able to reset all the settings to factory default via a console as this unit did not have a reset button!

    Got it all re-configured now and can login via the web interface.

    Thanks again people
