Hello, I am having a problem with my Aironet 1200 not booting up. It was previously starting up ok, but I was having problems access it through web browser and so I reset it using the mode button and plugging in power. Ther Aironet now starts up to the point that all three of the LEDs are green and stays like this. I have tried to reset it again without any luck.


According to the documentation :


Green, Green, Green = Starting Cisco IOS.


As it never progresses from this, I am at a loss at how to fix my problem. Any advice would be appriciated.


Thanks

If you connect a console cable what appears as the AP powers on?

If that is all you get from the console, then your AP needs to be RMA'd.

Hi Robin,


It sounds to me like the IOS was erased by using the reset/mode button :(


You can load a new Cisco IOS release using TFTP.


Follow these steps for 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.

Hope this helps!
