Installing the Driver and Client Utilities
If you are using a PPC 2002 device, the Cisco PEAP screen appears. If you are planning to use Cisco
PEAP authentication, make sure the Install Cisco PEAP Support check box is checked and click Next.
Otherwise, uncheck the Install Cisco PEAP Support check box and click Next.
If you are not using a PPC 2002 device, the Cisco Aironet Wireless LAN Adapter Setup screen appears.
Click Next to start the Windows CE Application Manager (CeAppMgr), which is installed with
ActiveSync. CeAppMgr interrogates the Windows CE device to determine its processor type.
When the Installing Applications dialog box appears asking if you want to install the client adapter using
the default application installation directory, click Yes. The default directory is \Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\Cisco on PPC devices and \Windows\Programs\Cisco on HPC and Windows CE .NET
A message and a progress bar appear indicating that the client adapter (and 802.1X backport if you are
using a PPC 2002 device) is being installed.
The driver and help files are copied to the \Windows directory, and the client utilities are installed in the
\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Cisco directory on PPC devices or the \Windows\Programs\Cisco
directory on HPC and Windows CE .NET devices. Shortcuts to ACU and WLM are automatically added
to the desktop on HPC and Windows CE .NET devices.
When the installation process is complete on the laptop or PC, a message appears asking you to view the
screen of the Windows CE device to see if any additional steps are required to complete the installation.
Click OK to terminate the installation process on the laptop or PC.
Complete any required steps on the Windows CE device.
Disconnect the Windows CE device.
If you are using a PPC 2002 device and you installed the 802.1X backport, reset your Windows CE
device now. (You should have been notified earlier that a reset would be required after installation.)
Insert the client adapter into the PC card slot of the Windows CE device. Refer to
instructions on inserting the client adapter.
The Windows CE device should configure the client adapter, and the green LED on the adapter should
blink. If this does not happen, remove the client adapter, reset the Windows CE device, and reinsert the
Cisco Aironet Wireless LAN Client Adapters Installation and Configuration Guide for Windows CE
If you uncheck the Install Cisco PEAP Support check box, the Microsoft PEAP supplicant
(rather than the Cisco PEAP supplicant) is installed.
If a Windows CE device is not connected to the laptop or PC (as instructed in
Exit to quit the setup program and connect a Windows CE device or click Next to continue
the installation. If you select Exit, click OK to shut down CeAppMgr and start again
1. If you select Next, a message appears indicating that the software will
be downloaded the next time a mobile device is connected. Click OK. The next time a
Windows CE device is connected to the laptop or PC via ActiveSync, CeAppMgr starts
automatically, and you are prompted to install the software.
