Hello Folks -
I just received an AIR-LAP-1252-AG-A-K9 AP. I orded the LWAPP model expecting the AP to show up with LWAPP code on it.
So I unpackaged it and plugged it into the network. It obtains an IP address and I can ping and telnet to it. I configured IP Helper on the router vlan to forward the LWAPP Discovery broadcast to the appropriate controller. As well as the global ip forward-protocol udp 12223 command.
However, the AP never joins the controller. I do not see the LWAPP discovery packet reach the controller either. I checked using "debug lwapp events enable" and "debug lwapp packet enable commands".
So my question is this. How do I determine what type of code (LWAPP or Autonomous) resides on the AP?
If it is autonomous where do I find the LWAPP code? Is it on CCO and clearly identified via a naming convention?
Do all 1252s come delivered with autonmous code?
Thanks for any information.
You can do a "show ver" from the CLI to see what code the AP was shipped with. What you are looking for is either c1250-k9w7 <--Autonomous or c1250-k9w8 <--- LWAPP. As to what they are shipped with, it depends on how the part was ordered. If you order an AP1252 that is Autonomous, and if you order LAP1252, then that is LWAPP.
If you need to convert the AP, yes, the software is on CCO, and when you select the image you will either choose IOS Software or Autonomous to Lightweight Mode Upgrade Image.
