Reboot Script for Linksys WAP200 access points

Since the Linksys WAP200 has a tendency to hang and not let any users connect anymore, this little script to reboot an accesspoint (webinterface still works fine). Replace user and password with correct values.

Cisco reverse telnet (AUX -> CON)

Let me jot this down before I forget it again, I’ve looked this up so often 😉
First we hook up the CON port of the borked device with the AUX port of a working router (the normal Cisco console cable with RJ45 connectors on both ends). Then we go to the router and configure it’s AUX port with these settings:

# conf t
# line aux 0
(config-line)# modem InOut
(config-line)# transport preferred all
(config-line)# transport input all
(config-line)# transport output all
(config-line)# stopbits 1
(config-line)# end

The router has to have a loopback address and it must be up (duh). Now we have to find out which port we are going to have to telnet to. Do a show line from the enable mode, the output should look something like this:

Tty Typ Tx/Rx A Modem
0 CTY – –
* 97 AUX 9600/9600 – inout
* 98 VTY – –

Our line is number 97, telnet to the loopback address and port 2000+our line. If our loopback had the IP the command would be telnet 2097
