old nanostation 5 password recovery

I have recently inherited a small NanoStation 5 network that is in operation.

There is one AP and two Stations. I know the login and password to one of the stations.

I have physical access to all three radios, but they are on short towers and are carrying live traffic.

I suspect that there is a MAC address filter on the AP because I cannot get a third station to sync with the rest of the network.

Is there a password recovery or password reset (that leaves the other settings in place) for the NanoStation 5's?

The one I can get into is runnig AirOS 2.2.1, so I think the others are running the same firmware.

No...When you reset the radio in order to default the password, everything gets reset to default.

Now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

According to a T-shirt I saw once, the other half is red and blue lazers!
