If you're desperate, you can always delete/rename the IOS image in flash and reboot.


Otherwise, try a different terminal program, such as Hyperterminal or TeraTerm. Maybe it's just putty - I've seen some terminals have issues sending break commands.

Hi Jeff,

problem is that AP doesnt accept break sequence when I unplug and plug AP. It boots normally further. But et the end of booting I cannot go to CLI when I press Enter. Thats the problem.

I tried other apps like Hyperterm, SecureCRT and so on, but without results.


Any idea?

Unfortunately I've never seen this particular issue. Have you opened a TAC case on this yet? If not I would do so and see what they suggest.

I don't think you can do the break like a switch or router.... what exactly are you trying to fix? If its a firmware issue then do the following:


To recover this AP1200, I would do this:


1. Get an AP1200 image from CCO; use one of the following IOS versions:

12.3(7)JA4

12.3(JA2

12.3(JEA


2. Find a computer that you can play with, and put a known good TFTP server

on it. I like the current Solarwinds server; if you have your own

favorite, so much the better.


3. Put the new AP1200 image into the TFTP server's root direction; rename

it to "c1200-k9w7-tar.default".


3. Address this computer's LAN adapter with 10.0.0.2.


4. Put this computer and the AP1200 on the same LAN.


5. Perform the mode button recovery procedure.


If its a password reset then follow this link:
