Configuration Example Wireless for a Cisco Router 87xW

Below I put an example configuration of enabling the Wireless functionality of the Cisco Router Series 870W.
This configuration is easier than what your options are in the webinterface. And now you can disable also the ip http server on the router with no ip http server.

  1. Hello there,
    I seem to have deleted the boot file (.bin) and cannot download it from Cisco apparently.
    Do you have any recommendation as to what I can do?
    I am receiving the below message:
    System Bootstrap, Version 12.3(8r)YI4, RELEASE SOFTWARE
    Technical Support:
    Copyright (c) 2006 by cisco Systems, Inc.
    C870 series (Board ID: 1-148) platform with 131072 Kbytes of main memory
    No bootable image file: flash:/
    Unable to open boot file

    1. You can try to google the version maybe someone put it online (not legal but a try worth) otherwise you need to request a tac maybe they can supply the version for your device.
