AP 1220-B-A Thick to Thin conversion

Answered Question
Oct 9th, 2008

I am trying to convert Airnet 1220 AP's from thick to thin so I can use a 4400 WLAN controller. I've upgraded the AP's to the latest firmware release. When I use the upgrade tool I receive the following error in the error log.

2008/10/08 21:27:40 INFO 192.168.15.215 User has Full privilege

2008/10/08 21:27:40 INFO 192.168.15.215 Getting AP Name

2008/10/08 21:27:40 INFO 192.168.15.215 AP has 12.3(7)JA Image or greater

2008/10/08 21:27:40 INFO 192.168.15.215 Term Length configured.

2008/10/08 21:27:41 INFO 192.168.15.215 Upgrade Tool supported AP

2008/10/08 21:27:41 ERROR 192.168.15.215 AP does not have Supported Radio

The upgrade fails at this point. Is there anyway around this?

I have this problem too.

Unfortunately, upgrading to LWAPP requires an 802.11g radio. You'll need to physically replace the 802.11b radio with a g-radio module.

Yeah, sorry to be the bearer of bad news :/ I should also point out that you can install an a-radio and it will also allow you to upgrade it, but either way you'll need to purchase and install a new radio.
