Cisco 1562 going Antonymous - u-boot issue

Hello All,

 

A customer gave us an AP to do some surveys.  We don't now the state of this AP, but when I connect via console it is in a loop waiting for the uplink.  If I escape and break the boot process I get a u-boot prompt.

 

I was able to tftp the image over, but not sure from there.

 

 ow do I get to a normal prompt or boot from the image which I'm not sure where it resides.

 

I have done significant searching but no post seems to be exactly what I need.

 

Thanks much for reading.  I really need to get this up and running

Thank you!!

 

That got me to a <APNAME># prompt

 

But the loop continues spewing nines and I can't stop it.  And the no logging conole cmd isn't working.  I have to get this one-off job done and it is no longer my core competency  :)

Hi, the AP is probably in CAPWAP mode awaiting an IP first and then wants to join a controller.
You'll have to give it a Mobility Express image if you want to do Wireless surveys with that AP.

First give the AP an IP address (example below)

#capwap ap ip 10.0.0.2 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.1
then make sure you have downloaded a compatible Mobility Express software image for that AP and put it onto a TFTP server.
then issue
#ap-type mobility-express tftp://ip-of-tftp-server/path-to-file/file

It will download the file and reboot and then give you an install wizard after about 5 to 7 minutes.

Hi

 You need to download the image AIR-AP1560-K9-ME-8-8-125-0.tar and convert this AP from lightweight to Mobility Express.
