1310 Autonomus to LAP conversion

                   Hi all,

Customer of mine has 20 AP AIR-BR1310G-E-K9. No controller installed. He use them as Autonomous AP.

Right now he wants indroduce a WLC. Due to that every single AP must be converted in LAP AP.

Anyone can tell me wether this is possible or not ?

is this action free of charge ? Nedd I SMARTENT COVERAGE ?

any  Cisco documentation is more than welcome:)

Thank in advance

CARLO

Hi Carlo,

If the customer is planning to use WLC then yes all the AP's has to be converted from IOS to Light Weight (LWAP) AP. This can be done freely provided you have the correct software image. You should be able to download this from the Cisco site and you wont need to have a SMARTNET as long as you can get the images from Cisco site by other means:-)

Below url will guide you with the procedure.

Also please be aware that "All 1310 AG access points can operate at AP Mode not as Bridge Mode"

Hope this helps.

Hi Carlo,

Your AP's should be fine with the upgrades. AP1310AG has dual radio cards (i.e "A" which operates at 5GHz and "G" which operates at 2.4GHz). Your AP has only one radio (i.e "G"). Dual radio or single radio on a AP does not affect the upgrade procedure.

Hope this helps.
