This is about a Cisco router (881w) with the AP-WLAN interface.

While on the AP interface (after having entered this command:)

service-module wlan-ap 0 session

If I enter this command:


will this reload the whole router, or only the AP module? In other words, will I only lose Wifi connectivity, or the whole internet access during the reload process?

If you want only to reload the WLAN AP, type:

service-module wlan-ap 0 reload

Typing reload by itself may either do nothing, or reload the whole router. If it will reload the whole router, it should prompt you before carrying out the action.
