WLAN Express Setup

From the AirOS code release 7.6.120.0 you can perform the initial WLC configuration using an easy GUI wizard called WLAN Express Setup.

 

The WLAN Express Setup is composed from these steps:

 

  1. Power on your new shiny WLC 2500.
  2. Connect your PC using an Ethernet cable to Port 2 of the WLC
  3. The WLC is running an internal DHCP server and you receive an IP address from the range 192.168.1.0/24, in my case 192.168.1.2

Upgrading WLC software using CLI

I am trying to make more WLC configuration using CLI. This is the first topic that I want to cover and maybe in future more will come. Now to the steps…

 

  1. Verify the current software version using the command #show sysinfo
