Hi Chris,

You can upgrade the 1230 if it has the proper radio as shown below;

The 1200 Series can be upgraded to LWAPP with the G Radio model listed below;

Solution Requirements

Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet access point platforms:

All 1130AG access points

All 1240 AG access points

For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access points (**1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210 and 1230 AP) platforms, it depends on the radio:

if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported

if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported

The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only, A only, or both G and A.

From this good doc;


So you would need to install the Radio Upgrade kit to install the (AIR-MP21G-A-K9).

Cisco Aironet 802.11G 1100 and 1200 Series Access Point Upgrade Kit


I'm not 100% sure that these kits are still available (but I think they are :)

Hope this helps!
