I have a AIR-LAP1242AG-A-K9 that I need to setup using Autonomous Mode. From what I understand I need software to do this but I didn't get anything with the device. I see the AP gets an IP address but when I try to access it IE does not find it.

Hi Gordon,


The AP Model AIR-LAP1242AG-A-K9 is a LWAPP (Lightweight) Access Point. So you will have to load an IOS :)



Here is a conversion method;


Reverting the Access Point Back to Autonomous Mode

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.
