Configuring Other Devices
The configuration options for all other devices are relatively simple. In general, you can change their display names in their global settings sub-panel and make changes to basic settings on each interface.
A bridge is basically a simplified two-port switch. It does not have VLAN or trunking functions. The available settings for its two Ethernet ports are Port Status, Bandwidth, and Duplex.
A repeater is a simple two-port device that regenerates the signal it receives on one port and forwards it out the other port. Its port settings cannot be modified.
A hub is a multiport repeater that regenerates the signal it receives on one port and forwards it out all other ports except the incoming port. Its port settings cannot be modified.
A coaxial splitter is a simple three-port device that splits the signal so that multiple devices can connect to the same coaxial line.
An access point is modeled as a repeater with one wireless port and one Ethernet port. In the settings for the wireless port, you can toggle the Port Status, set the SSID, Channel, and Authentication. You may set the authentication to WEP, WPA-PSK, or WPA2-PSK. For WEP, you need to set the Key to a 10-digit hexadecimal value. For WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK, the PassPhrase needs to be 8-63 ASCII characters long and the Encryption Type can be set to AES or TKIP. The available settings for an access point's Ethernet port are Port Status, Bandwidth, and Duplex.
Lightweight Access Points
A lightweight access point (LAP-PT) has limited configurations as it is managed by the wireless LAN controller that it's connected to. In the Dot11Radio0 interface, you can configure its Port Status and Coverage Range.
A 3702i lightweight access point is similar to the LAP-PT device as it is also managed by the wireless LAN controller that it's connected to. In addition, you can configure Primary Controller's IP address in the WLC sub-panel. You can also configure the GigabitEthernet interface's Port Status, Bandwidth, Duplex, MAC Address, and IP Configuration.
The printer has the same configuration options as a PC excluding Algorithm Settings and desktop utilities.
The 7960 IP Phone does not have any configurable options. In the GUI tab, you can place a call, answer a call, and send Do, Re, and Mi notes to the recipient phone. To place a call enter the recipient's line number first using the keypad and then click on the handset to dial out. Alternatively, you can pickup the handset first and then dial the number to place a call. To answer a phone call on the analog phone, click on the handset when the phone is ringing. While the line is connected, you can send Do, Re, or Mi to the recipient by pressing the respective buttons. In order to hear the sounds, be sure Sound is enabled in Preferences. To end a call, click on the handset.
The Home VoIP only has Server Address configuration.
The Analog Phone does not have any configurable options. In the GUI tab, you can place a call, answer a call, and send Do, Re, and Mi to the recipient phone just like on the 7960 IP Phone.
The TV can only be turned on or off.
Wireless End Device
The wireless end device has the same configuration options as a wireless PC excluding the Desktop tab utilities. However, the Wireless End Device has a GUI tab which includes an IP Config and Traffic Generator utility that works equivalently to the PC's Desktop variant. The Wireless End Device also has an HTML tab that allows you to manually edit the GUI tab using HTML and it also allows you to optionally lock the HTML with a password.
Wired End Device
The wired end device features the same configuration options as the wireless end device except that it has a FastEthernet interface.
The DSL modem does not have any configuration options.
The cable modem does not have any configuration options.
Power Distribution Device
The Power Distribution Device does not have any configuration options.
