Excuse any ignorance - I'm a newbie so this could be due to something obvious.
I'm trying to set up an Aironet 1852i using Mobility Express. The part number I ordered was AIR-AP1852I-E-K9C, where I believe the 'C' indicates the Mobility Express image is pre-loaded.
Following the getting started guides for both the access point and Mobility Express itself, I've arrived at an apparently unexpected place.
The steps I've taken:
Hook the AP into my existing network
Connect wirelessly to the 'CiscoAirProvision' SSID
Complete the configuration wizard (see 'setup.png')
Wait for reboot
Try to log in to Mobility Express
This is where everything goes wrong... no SSID appears after the reboot, but I can access the AP over a wired connection (I pre-created a static IP mapping for the AP's MAC address on my router). Instead of seeing the Mobility Express login screen, I see an "OfficeExtend' one (see 'setup2.png'). I can log in using admin/admin (which isn't what I set in the wizard) but I see a completely different UI the illustration in the Mobility Express guide - see 'setup3.png' and 'setup4.png'. Note the mismatched SSID, and that neither radios are actually enabled.
Figuring this is the 'CAPWAP Lightweight AP Software' alluded to in the guide, I duly connected via the console port and followed the instructions. The first step is to identify which conversion steps are required, however when I run 'sh version' I get the following output:
cisco AIR-AP1852I-E-K9 ARMv7 Processor rev 0 (v7l) with 966404/662192K bytes of memory. Processor board ID KWC202807A5 AP Running Image : 220.127.116.11 Primary Boot Image : 18.104.22.168 Backup Boot Image : 0.0.0.0 AP Image type : MOBILITY EXPRESS IMAGE AP Configuration : MOBILITY EXPRESS CAPABLE 2 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces 2 802.11 Radios Radio FW version : 21e6bdcdd6b8c8a2e3830b2f6ddab9b5 NSS FW version : NSS.AK.1.0.c10-00017-E_custC-1 Base ethernet MAC Address : 18:8B:45:10:23:D0 Part Number : 0-0000-00 PCA Assembly Number : 074-13149-02 PCA Revision Number : 01 PCB Serial Number : KWC202807A5 Top Assembly Part Number : 000-00000-00 Top Assembly Serial Number : KWC202807A5 Top Revision Number : A0 Product/Model Number : AIR-AP1852I-E-K9
According to the guide, the presence of "AP Image Type: MOBILITY EXPRESS IMAGE" and "AP Configuration: MOBILITY EXPRESS CAPABLE" indicates that no conversion is necessary for Mobility Express, and that I should simple reboot the AP to see the initial configuration wizard. Predictably I don't see the wizard after a reboot, since I've already completed it.
Any help would be fantastically welcome.
