Which IOS major release for aironet 1200 series

Unanswered Question
Oct 1st, 2007


I've acquired a cisco aironet 1200 series wireless access point and want to upgrade it to the latest IOS software. However there appear to be 4 different versions I can use:





How do I know which one to go for? I found this page:


Which purports to allow you to compare different versions, but it claims things are unique to certain images when I know for a fact they exist in the one I'm comparing it to as well, hence I don't have much faith in it.

Is there a high level overview of the 4 releases so I can decide which one to go for?

  • 2
  • 3
  • 4

Hi Richard,

There is sadly no overveiw doc :( That being said I would recommend the following IOS which is not the latest but does contain many Bug fixes;

Release Notes for Cisco Aironet Access Points for Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEB1


Here is a link to all the 1200 series Release notes:


Hope this helps!

A recommendation is a good start thanks, but out of interest you say that that release isn't the latest - if it isn't the latest why is it shown as a current option for the access point, and not under 'previous releases'? If that isn't the latest release, where would I find the latest release?

Hi Richard,

My appologies here :( This is the latest release for the 1200 SERIES AP. This was released August 22,2007. I was looking at another train altogether.

Hope this helps! Sorry for the confusion.
