Cisco 1040 IOS to CAPWAP possible?

I´m looking to a project where we want to start using Autonomous AP with possibility to change to controller based on near future.

Will Cisco Aironet 1040 Series Access Points allow us to change from IOS to CAPWAP when needed? I read some posts about the oposite process (CAPWAP to IOS) so I think it´s possible on both way. Can some one confirm this to me?

Re: Cisco 1040 IOS to CAPWAP possible?

Hi,

Here is the way we convert the AP from LWAPP to IOS  (make sure you are using the right image), example is for 1142 AP..

The  image that is on the device is LWAPP one, not the autonomous..  if  you  want to use the AP in autonomous mode then the image should be  W7..   that is..

c1140-k9w7-tar.124-21a.JY.tar not c1140-rcvk9w8-tar.124-23c.JA.tar

I request you to do download any image from the below link and perform the conversion from LWAPP image to autonomous..

http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/PlatformList.x?sftType=IOS+Software&mdfid=282439881&treeName=Wireless&mdfLevel=Model&url=null&modelName=Cisco+Aironet+1140+Access+Point&isPlatform=N&treeMdfId=278875243&modifmdfid=null&imname=&hybrid=Y&imst...

the methos to convert is..

download TFTPd32 from google and install it on ur PC.. point the image that you have downloaded in the TFTP server..

connect    a ethernet cable between ur laptop and AP.. both should be in the  same   subnet.. and connect a console cable and get the hyperterminal  console   access and issue the command.. make sure you are able to ping  the PC  and the AP and vice versa!!

AP>en

AP#debug lwapp console cli or debug capwap console cli

AP#config t

AP(confg)int fa 0

AP(confg-if)ip addr (same subnet as that of the laptop)

AP(confg-if)end

AP#archieve download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp:///

AP#archieve download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://<10.0.0.5>/c1140-k9w7-tar.124-21a.JY.tar

The above command will do it for you!!

lemme know if this answered your question..

Now to reconvert the AP back to LWAPP..

Download the LWAPP image(W8) from the cisco website and get the console access the AP and just issue the command..

archive download-sw/overwrite/force-reload tftp:////

I assume we have the TFTPd32 downloaded from google and in the TFTPd32 pointing to the image.

lemme know if this answered your question..

Cisco 1040 IOS to CAPWAP possible?

Hi Surendra,

Kinda weird, the 1040 CAPWAP images were NOT in Cisco download link. All I can find is 1140 though I carefully click on 1040 APs. Can you verify?

Thanks,
