I am trying to configure a new Aironet 1240AG. After it picked an ip address from the DHCP in my lan, I still can't log in using the web interface. I am using an Internet Explorer 6.0 on Win 2000. It keeps telling me cannot find server. please i need assistance
Maybe try this (highly recommended version)
Solar Winds tftp
The problem could be that the Laptop (used for TFTP) Operating System is hiding the known file type. From Internet Explorer, go into Tools > Folder Options > View, scroll down until you find the parameter Hide extensions for known file types, and uncheck the box. This should eliminate the issue.
Hope this helps!
First off you are most welcome :) This method definitely works without the need for a WLC, be patient. Check the static IP address you set on your TFTP (**10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.30 range)
Rename the access point image file in the TFTP server folder to c1200-k9w7-tar.default for a 1200 series access point
Sounds like a TFTP problem (no firewall on your PC?)
Have a look at the details in the following threads that all have to do with TFTP. There are some great hints for troubleshooting TFTP problems from some of my favourite NetPros like ScottMac,Stephen from Cisco and Jack Young. The likely culprit may be that you need to uncheck "hide extensions for known file types" on your TFTP server;
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
