This Process is the same for both IOS and ClickOS APs.

  • Disconnect power from AP.
  • Press and hold "Mode button" on AP and provide power to AP. Note that some Access-Points do not have a regular DC-Power-Connector but need to be powered through a Ethernet Cable that is connected to a PoE Switch-Port.
  • Keep mode button hold for 20 seconds or more. A message like the following appears:
Button is pressed. Configuration reset activated.. 
Keep the button pressed for > 20 seconds for full reset 

Wait for the button to be released .... 
Button pressed for 22 seconds
  • Username, Login- and Enable-Passsword are now all "Cisco"
