    Connect to 1940

    gregu New Member

      I have to use an AP 1940 to complete an outdoor survey, which I will use AirMagnet Survey Pro, and I have one borrowed 1940. I have connected the AP through a PoE injector but when I fire up AirMagnet the AP is NOT transmitting. I have tried to access the AP through PUTTY with NO success, I can  hit the "front door" of the box but cannot get any login/password to pop. Does anyone know the right settings to access the 1940 through PUTTY?

          If the BSAP is to be powered by a network device such as a switch, connect the Ethernet port of the BSAP to the appropriate switchport. Obtain the IP address of the BSAP from the Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) server based on the MAC address of the BSAP. DHCP is enabled by default. You can then SSH to the BSAP based on the instructions below:


          • If the BSAP is using DHCP, you can access the AP’s command line interface (CLI) using a Secure Shell (SSH) client on port 2335. Open an SSH connection using the unit’s IP address obtained from DHCP. The default username and password is adm1n and blue1socket.
          • If the BSAP is connected to a computer, set your PC to a static IP address of 192.168.190.2 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.  You can then access the AP’s command line interface (CLI) using a Secure Shell (SSH) client on port 2335 using the unit’s default IP address (192.168.190.1) and the credentials above.

           

          The 1940 is not a standalone AP and therefore requires a vWLAN controller.

              Nick,

               

               

               

              I am planning on just using the 1940 in “survey mode” only at this time, then after Adtran completes its mesh programming, we are going to install 5 1940’s in an outdoor setting including at least one IP streaming camera.

               

               

               

              Thank you for the information, I currently have the AP connected to my vWLAN appliance, but still cannot see the AP. Any thoughts?

               

               

               

              Thank you again,

                  When using the Site Survey Mode, you need to be sure to set the country code (option 8) then enable those settings (option 5) before changing other settings.  Next, you will need to set the Interface (1), the Channel (3), and the Transmit Power (4, default 0) and then enable the Site Survey Settings (5). Once you have enabled the settings you can confirm the settings have been saved by looking at the Site Survey Summary (6).

                      WOOHOO life is great and the AP is broadcasting!!!! One more question, when I have installed 1840's, and configure them at my office/lab through my vWLAN appliance and I take them to my customer site for install they dump all configurations and I have to direct them back to my appliance - will this happen when I take the 1940 to do my survey? IF so, that is a problem because I will not have any network connectivity where I am going.

                       

                      Thanks for all your assistance - it worked!

                          You have to reboot the AP to get it out of Site Survey Mode, therefore when you unplug it and take it to a different location, you will need to reconfigure it to be in the Site Survey Mode.  I'm not quite sure I fully understand your question regarding the 1840s.  When you configure the AP at your office/lab, are you using DHCP and Discovery or are you statically assigning the AP an IP and controller address?

                      Nick,

                       

                      Do you happen to know the Cat5e pinout for the 1940, which pair supplies the power on PoE? We are looking into adding lightening protection to the setup and need to know this.

                       

                      Thanks,

                      Greg

                          A powered device (PD) is a device that operates on power supplied by the power source equipment (PSE) rather than conventional means. PDs cover a broad range of network equipment, and can operate in one of two modes, A or B. The mode that is used is determined by the PSE. The two modes differ in the wire pairs/pins used in the process. Mode A uses pins 1, 2, 3, and 6 while mode B uses pins 4, 5, 7, and 8.  Consequently, mode B requires that a 4-pair cable be used. In order to indicate its compliance with IEEE standard 802.3af, the PD places a 25 KΩ resistance between the powered pairs. In order to stay powered, the PD must use 5 to 10 mA continuously for at least 60 ms with no greater than 400 ms since its last use.
