This document explains about the commands needed for the conversion from Mesh AP mode to Local mode and Vice-versa. This is feature introduced in the CUWN 8.0.
How to configure the Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) and lightweight access point (LAP) for basic operation.
Basic Knowledge of Mesh and Local AP modes.
The information in this document is based on all AP hardware models connected to controllers on 8.0 CUWN version.
Behaviour Before 8.0:
An AP in Bridge mode needs to first join a WLC that is configured with the proper AP MAC address in its Auth-list before you can change that AP’s mode.
Configure the AP in CUWN 8.0 and onwards:
capwap ap mode local
capwap ap mode bridge
This command will cause the AP to reload.
Before switching an AP from Local to Bridge mode ensure that the AP has an image with a full radio support (…-k9w8-…) so that it can support Radios and that the AP MAC address has been added to the WLC
Issue the following command on the AP and the WLC to verify if it has changed its mode
On the AP:
show capwap client config
On the WLC
show ap config general
