Cisco AIR-CAP3602I-N-K9 Standalone Mode

Hello,

I was able to get my hands on a Cisco  AIR-CAP3602I-N-K9, but understand it will only work with a WLC.

Is it possible to convert it into a standalone AP?

Thanks

Peter

Hi, Yes, it is possible.

Hi,

 

Yes, it is possible. Basically, it is done by changing the AP image from ap3g2-k9w8... to ap3g2-k9w7...

You can refer to the document below for details on how it is done.

https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/57476/lwapp-autonomous-conversion-and-vice-versa-access-points

I have to mention that you will need a CCO account and service contract associated to that account in order to have the right to download the image.

 

Best regards,

Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for your reply.

I found a lot of those guides last night, but when i try and enter

debug lwapp console cli or debug capwap console cli

I don't have the option, all i've got is.

 

AP#debug capwap ?

  am           KAM-AP debug

  client       CAPWAP Client Debug Options

  flexconnect  CAPWAP FlexConnect Debug Options

  ids          WIDS debug

  mcast        CAPWAP MCAST Debug Options

  mfp          CAPWAP MFP Debug Options

  rm           CAPWAP RM Debug Options

 

AP#debug lwapp ?

  client          LWAPP Client Debug Options

  iapp-data-echo  LWAPP IAPP data plane echo

 

any thoughts?

Cheers

I managed to find another way

I managed to find another way of doing it. Details are below

 

  1. Delete the old flash image file. In my case I had to delete two directories but just assess what files are in flash.

Delete -recursive flash:/<path to directory>

 

  1. Reload the AP which will make it boot to rommon mode (because there is no flash image to load).

 

  1. Set the IP Address using the following commands (Case sensitive)

Set IP_ADDR=10.0.0.1

Set IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0

 

  1. Initialize the tftp, ethernet and flash subsystems

tftp_init

ether_init

flash_init

 

  1. Download the Image using tftp. Use a program like tftpd32.

 tar -xtract tftp://10.0.0.5/ap3g2-k9w7.tar.153-3.JAB.tar flash:

 

  1. Set type boot image

set BOOT flash:/ap3g2-k9w7-mx.153-3.JAB/ap3g2-k9w7-xx.153-3.JAB

 

  1. Boot the image

boot

 

Then my AP booted and I was able to configure it in standalone mode.

Thanks for your help Sebastian. Would still be good to know why I didn't have the debug lwapp console cli or debug capwap console cli commands.....

Hi Peter,I'm glad that you

Hi Peter,

I'm glad that you have figured it out.

The debug capwap console cli command is hidden and does not show up in IOS help. You just have to write it as it is, hit enter and it will work.

 

Best regards,

Sebastian
