AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9 Lightweight to Standalone AP Mode

Helllo! 

 

I work for a small IT firm, and we currently do not have any service agreement with Cisco. We have about a dozen of these LAP1142 access points on a network that no longer has its wifi controller, so I have been searching for ways to revert the AP's to their standalone mode. Unfortunately, I have not been able to reset the AP's and acquire an IP address, let alone connect to them over a TFTP server running on my machine. 

Is there any software that I'm missing that can autoconfigure these access points on my network, and revert them from lightweight to standalone mode? I would appreciate any and all links to relevant downloads that are available to the general public. 

 

Thanks!

Check out these blogs about converting to autonomous.

You will need to have the autonomous image though which probably requires a licence/ support agreement still to obtain legally
