Hello,


I am trying to configure one of our extra 1231 AP as a work group bridge. The AP was configured as a lightweight AP so I think that might be part of my issue.


This was the documentation I found to do the config: http://cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4_3g_JA/configuration/guide/s43hot.html


However I do not have the commands available that they list.


Here is sh ver info:


Cisco IOS Software, C1200 Software (C1200-K9W8-M), Version 12.4(13d)JA, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

swn-e9-wh-01-SWAP(config)#int dot11Radio 0

swn-e9-wh-01-SWAP(config-if)#stati?

% Unrecognized command


Is this not possible with the IOS and AP that I have?

Hi Eric,


I'm just curious, did you convert the AP back to IOS already?


This can be converted to an Autonomous/stand-alone AP that you desire;


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.



Hope this helps!

Rob
