Same as the controller.

LWAPs have the same version SW # as the controller they boot from. If you're asking what version of the code to use to upgrade an IOS AP, it probably still is JA12.3(7)ea2 or greater followed by JX. The release notes do mention having to upgrade to 4.0.217 as an intermediate step between 4.0.206 and 4.1.171, but that is likely only to protect configuration settings for in-production LWAPs, not for adding new APs.

Hi Kyle,

I'm not sure if I understood your question properly so my appologies if this is off base. Once an LWAPP joins the Controller it runs the same code as the Controller, so in this instance .

Hope this helps!

Hi guys. Rob here is the information I'm referring too. This is the information from WCS when I choose to monitor an AP. I understand that the AP runs the same version as the controller but does the IOS Version change when running different versions of controller code? Thanks!

AP Model AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9

IOS Version 12.3(11)JA

b.julin Wed, 05/09/2007 - 04:36

My my you're right.

The version shown from a "show vers" is 12.4(3g)JA

(C1100-K9W8-M, C1130-K9W8-M ... I don't have any of the 1200s on that controller yet.)

wackerk24 Wed, 05/09/2007 - 05:09

B.julin is this the version shown with controller version Thanks for the reply. What model of AP's are you running with this version? Thanks!

Hi Kyle/Brian,

I'm guessing that these AP's were ordered as Autonomous and converted to LWAPP? This is a curiousity isn't it. I'm guessing that this was the IOS Image before being converted, but I can't find any documentation to support this.

Let us know,


wackerk24 Wed, 05/09/2007 - 05:44

Rob, That is correct. These were all autonomous AP's converted to LWAPP in my situation.

b.julin Thu, 05/10/2007 - 05:28

No, one of these (the 1121G) is a conversion and the other shipped LWAPP (the 1131AG)

For the 1100 series I believe I upgraded to JEA1 before JX. This IOS version seems to have nothing to do with that.

The filenames (dirs actually) in flash are c1100-k9w8-mx.124-3g.JA and c1130-k9w8-mx.124-3g.JA.

Oddly, the 1131 which shipped as LWAPP has c1130-rcvk9w8-mx still residing in flash as well.

(Yes these are joined to a 4.1.171 controller)

Hi Kyle/Brian,

Sorry for the delay in posting back but I was trying to find out what this might be. Have a look at Erics good answer in this thread. It sounds like a possible bug;


Hope this helps!
