How to reset a Motorola/Brocade 7131 AP

I needed to reset the config of a bunch of Motorola APs and unfortunately the documentation isn’t readily available. Here is the easiest way when you can get access to the console.

  • 1. The console settings are 19200/8/n/2
  • 2. Once the boot process hit ESC and this will take you to the boot menu.
  • 3. type reset config
  • 4. Once this is done type reboot

You have now reset the config.  Below is a capture of the process.
