Cisco Aironet Series 1140

Hey everyone, welcome to 2010 🙂

In the last week I managed to score myself a Cisco Aironet Series 1140 access point. Now it is standalone since its only going to be used for a single AP setup without any wireless controllers.

The model which I got is the – AIR-AP1142N-N-K9 and also I had to get with it a powersupply AIR-PWR-B=.

As taken from the cisco website..

The Cisco® Aironet® 1140 Series Access Point is a business-ready, indoor access point designed for simple deployment and energy efficiency. The 1140 Series is a dual-band (a/g/n), 802.11n access point with integrated antennas. It can be ordered in a controller-based* (lightweight) or Standalone (autonomous) version. “

I must say im quite impressed by this AP, the performance and features make it really outstanding. The access point is “Made in the USA” so none of that made in china stuff..

A show version from the console:

The access point is configurable by console and by a webpage interface. I must say the webpage interface is quite easy to use, and so is the AP.

I have taken some screenshots of the webpage interface below, and some shots of the AP. It gets a 10/10 from me, and of course the AP is nicely connected to that 2960G switch 🙂 (click on images to make them larger)

      I know this is an ancient post…. But if you need the newest autonomous firmwares for the 1140 or 2600i I have them. I also have the ios boot images for both.

      Warning: the newest 2600 image breaks the web gui. Can’t click apply on anything it returns 404. So that leaves you with the cli or the free end of life Cisco network assistant. Issue doesn’t exist on the 1140 but man is there a performance difference
