Hi John,

You may have already solved this issue but I thought you may want to see this info that does show full support for the 1000 Series;

The following components are part of the Cisco UWN Solution and are compatible in this release:

•Software release for all Cisco controllers and lightweight access points

•Cisco autonomous to lightweight mode upgrade tool release 3.0

•Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) software release

•Cisco WCS Navigator

•Cisco Aironet 1000, 1100, 1130, 1200, 1240, 1250, and 1300 Series Lightweight Access Points


I'm not familiar with the Nortel relationship here, I thought the 1000 series was part of the old "AIRSPACE" (not sure about the spelling :) product line that was aquired by Cisco.

Hope this helps!

History 101. Airespace OEM'd APs to Alcatel, Nortel, and NEC for the years prior to the acquisition. These radios, though similar in size and style were not 100% compatible with the Airespace AP1250. They were more in line with the first gen Airespace APs and in some cases are not upgradeable. I haven't personally tried any version of 4x code on these APs. There was a Smartnet conversion plan in place early on. Check with your Cisco AM to see if it is still available.
