Aironet 1200 pulses between green, orange and red

Answered Question
Mar 21st, 2009

I was updating the firmware on my cisco aironet access point 1200 and it froze right in the middle of the flash. When I plug the access point in now, the status light pulses between green, orange and red; the radio light blinks red; and the Ethernet light blinks green. Is there any hope for this access point? I need assistance please!!

I have this problem too.

If the status LED is pulsing colors like that, does that imply that you loaded lightweight software to the AP? Normally that means that the AP is looking for a controller. If that's the case, you might want to connect the AP to your network and see if it finds your controller. Maybe it didn't get corrupted after all.

What version of IOS were you loading onto the AP?

thank you for your reply

i was trying to install c1200-rcvk9w8-tar.123-7.JX9. actually, i left the AP for about 3 hours and as Cisco advised that the update operation takes about 15 mins. and when i lost all the hopes. i disconnected and tried to connected again to the network.

in the end i used console cable with mode botton and TFTP server to restore it. Now IT is working Just Perfect :D

Hi Jeff,

If the LED are flashing like a disco dance floor, then the AP went into ROMMON.

However, if the AP's looking for a controller, the flashing is slower.
