Reset an Cisco Access Point CAP3502I to factory defaults

Hi,

today I tried to reset an AP with the mode button and I hoped that ALL config was deleted from the AP – but no. All the WLC Config was still there…

The only way that I found to delete the whole config, also the WLC config was the following command that you must enter on the CLI of the WLC.

clear ap config <AP-NAME>

(Cisco Controller) >clear ap config AP6c6c.6c6c.6c6c
clear ap config will clear ap config and reboot the AP, Are you sure you want continue? (y/n) y

All AP configuration including AP’s static IP configuration has been cleared.

You will get the ap name with following command on the CLI:

show ap summary

(Cisco Controller) >show ap summary
Number of APs……………………………… 1

Global AP User Name………………………… Not Configured
