The Cisco Wireless Utility Auto Installer (CWUA) enables an administrator to install the Aironet Client Utility (ACU) across a network, eliminating the need to install and configure the ACU on each wireless client. The auto installer runs in a silent batch mode and will install and configure the ACU (thereby configuring the Cisco Aironet client adapter) on a computer running the Windows operating system.
The auto installer allows the administrator to selectively install and configure parameters for:
■ The drive and directory where the ACU will be stored on the computer.
■ The folder where the ACU will be installed on the computer.
■ The drive and directory where client card firmware and drivers will be stored on the computer.
■ Profiles will be loaded on the computer.
Each profile allows the administrator to selectively configure the following parameters on the ACU for:
■ Radio settings
■ Wireless network settings
■ Network security settings (service set identifier [SSID], wired equivalent privacy [WEP] keys, Network Security)
The auto installer can also be used with its own encryption utility to encrypt the files before they are sent across the network to insure that network security is not compromised while performing auto-installs.

RF Activity Status

The status light emitting diode (LED) on the PC card is the green LED. It has three modes of operation:
■ Blinking once every half-second: Operating in infrastructure mode, scanning for an access point to associate with.
■ Blinking once every 2 seconds: Operating in infrastructure mode, associated to an access point.
■ Solid Green: Operating in "ad hoc" mode (will not communicate to an access point).
The orange LED is the radio frequency (RF) traffic LED. It has two modes of operation:
■ Blinking: Indicates RF traffic.
■ Solid ORANGE: Indicates the card is in reset mode, not in operational mode. Typically this means the driver has not been installed properly, or has not loaded properly.
