Cisco Aironet 1200 series

Hello fellow forum users!

I hope everyone is doing well. I have been cleaning my house and I have come across a Cisco Aironet Air-AP 1232. I was wondering if this AP would be worth keeping to learn how to configure more modern Cisco access points? Or should I just toss it? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!


Hey Scott

If you have it and your itching to get your hands on the command line of the device, it can definitely be of help. The device is quite old but it does give you a feel of what it’s like to configure a wireless Cisco device from scratch. Even though the more modern APs available are often set up using controllers or web interfaces, it’s always good to get your hands on the command line and know the basics.

This access point will definitely help you to get that experience.

I hope this has been helpful!
