Air 1131 AP Console difficulties

Unanswered Question
Aug 14th, 2007

Hi everyone.

I've got a new AP(above). I've consoled into it and see the boot sequence, but, I cant seem to actually get in to do anything with it!

All I see is the usual interface up/down messages, but it doesn't let me do anything. Here's the kind of output I see:

Mar 1 00:00:29.627: %SNMP-5-COLDSTART: SNMP agent on host ap is undergoing a cold start

*Mar 1 00:00:30.559: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Dot11Radio1, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:00:30.562: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Dot11Radio0, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:00:30.589: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface BVI1, changed state to up

*Mar 1 00:00:41.504: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface BVI1, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:00:42.504: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface BVI1, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:01:01.596: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface BVI1, changed state to up

*Mar 1 00:01:02.596: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface BVI1, changed state to up

*Mar 1 00:01:11.504: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface BVI1, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:01:12.504: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface BVI1, changed state to down

*Mar 1 00:01:31.601: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface BVI1, changed state to up

Is there something I'm missing?

Can anyone please help?

I have this problem too.

Hi George,

It sounds like Cisco may have shipped you a Lightweight model. Can you check to see if this is a LAP-1131?

Hi Rob,

Not sure how to check this.

From the output I can see this:

cisco AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9, if that's any help.

I didn't order the units, they just landed on my desk and I need to blow a standard config template into it and then go and install the unit.

Thanks for helping.

Can anybody help me at all with this?

I know it must be something simple, but i'm just missing it completely.

There must be a way to connect to it. I thought it might be a faulty AP, so I tried another, and thats the same too.

Help, please..?

Hi George,

Maybe you could try this good conversion method;

Reverting the Access Point Back to Autonomous Mode

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps430/prod_technical_reference09186a00804fc3dc.html#wp161272

You can convert an access point from lightweight mode back to autonomous mode by loading a Cisco IOS Release that supports autonomous mode (Cisco IOS release 12.3(7)JA or earlier). If the access point is associated to a controller, you can use the controller to load the Cisco IOS release. If the access point is not associated to a controller, you can load the Cisco IOS release using TFTP.

Using a TFTP Server to Return to a Previous Release

Follow these steps to revert from LWAPP mode to autonomous mode by loading a Cisco IOS release using a TFTP server:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1 The static IP address of the PC on which your TFTP server software runs should be between 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.30.

Step 2 Make sure that the PC contains the access point image file (such as c1200-k9w7-tar.122-15.JA.tar for a 1200 series access point) in the TFTP server folder and that the TFTP server is activated.

Step 3 Rename the access point image file in the TFTP server folder to c1200-k9w7-tar.default for a 1200 series access point, c1130-k9w7-tar.default for an 1130 series access point, and c1240-k9w7-tar.default for a 1240 series access point.

Step 4 Connect the PC to the access point using a Category 5 (CAT5) Ethernet cable.

Step 5 Disconnect power from the access point.

Step 6 Press and hold MODE while you reconnect power to the access point.

Step 7 Hold the MODE button until the status LED turns red (approximately 20 to 30 seconds) and then release.

Step 8 Wait until the access point reboots, as indicated by all LEDs turning green followed by the Status LED blinking green.

Step 9 After the access point reboots, reconfigure it using the GUI or the CLI.

Sorry for the multiple posts. Yikes, something must have gone haywire. My apologies :)
