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