Currently running c1200-k9w7-tar.123-7JA.tar or c1200-k9w7-tar.123-7JA3.tar on all the AIR-AP1231G-A-K9.



1. Wish to upgrade IOS on these to higher versions of IOS.

2. WLSE 1130 is now running WLSE-2.13U.

3. Need WEP and WPA support

4. After 3 or 4 months would like to go to Light Weight on AP.



1. What is the best version of IOS to go to on these AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 units - Should it be c1200-k9w7-tar.123-8JEB.tar or c1200-k9w7-tar.123-8JEB1.tar or higher

2. Can we continue to use WLSE 1130 Software WLSE-2.13U or does need to be upgraded as well ?

Reading the release notes is so confusing.

Any pointers to any useful links to clear my doubts and answer my questions are much appreciated.

Thanks for the responses.

The version we want to choose for IOS upgrade on these AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 should allow for easy migration to LWAPP in a few months.

The IOS you currently have, with prefix "k9w7", is for Autonomous mode and should allow encryption. If you need to convert it to LWAPP, the image should have a prefix of "rcv".

Does this help?
