You can connect a serial cable on the AP to the PC.

If you want to use RJ45 cables:

From AP to PC you need a crossover cable.

From Router to AP, a straight cable should work.

I will keep the TFTP server computer IP address to How do i check the connectivity between AP and TFTP server?

Is there any default IP address for the Acccess Point to verify? Can I do ping between these IP address?

If you reset the AP, or change the IP to and you set your pc on static ip /24 with the AP as default gateway, it will be able to ping

Hi ,

How do I back up the earlier image flash:/c1130-rcvkw8-mx/c1130-rcvk9w8-mx?

Thank you,

make sure to rename the AP image name to something like: c1130-k9w7-tar.default on the PC.

Then follow the instructions to reboot the AP, it should download the file automatically from your pc's TFTP server

Lucien Avramov Mon, 08/10/2009 - 14:54

You cant at this point, if you need this file again you could download it from our website

I deleted the c1130-rcvk9w8-mx. I also installed tftpd32 on the PC. I have c1130-k9w7-tar.default on the PC desktop. what is default? do I need to have c350-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA2.tar on the desktop to load the image? May I know the right file name?

The access point is at AP: not able to find the image.

it says "download defaunt ios tar image


then ap: "

I also unable to ping now. I was able to ping before the deletion of the old image. What should i do now?

Thank you,

The name of the autonomous AP file on your PC should be:


Power down the ap, then hold the mode button. On the console connection with the ap, you will see it when it tries to download the image from TFTP.

If you have the correct image and are correctly connected to the AP, it will start downloading.

You dont have to configure anything on the AP for that.

c1130-k9w7-tar.default : default is the extension of the filename. It has to be added.

We are using a little tweak, as usually this is the filename format the WLC (controller) stores the AP file, to be retrieved.

In our scenario we are using your PC to simulate the behavior of a WLC. So the file needs to be called this way, so the AP, when it boots can retrieve it automatically.

I appreciate your inputs. I have tried this many times. It comes up with

download default ios tar image



It stops there. I use tftpd32 as tftp server in my PC. The ip address is Default gateway of

unable to ping during this process. I use cross-over cable between computer and AP.

Thank you,


Lucien Avramov Mon, 08/10/2009 - 22:42

It's odd that it stops like this, it shouldnt.

are you sure you downloaded an autonomous ap IOS version?

For example:

c1130-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA.tar or,


Lucien Avramov Mon, 08/10/2009 - 22:47

One step I forgot to mention here, that you need: configure TFTP32 on the PC to act as a DHCP server so it gives an ip address to the AP.

Set the TFTP server to /27.

The AP will come up as and will look for the appropreiate IOS

Thank you very much! my friend (johnlloyd_13) did the job as suggested by you doing DHCP server configuration.

If you could reply a message, I will also mark this as resolved solution. Thank you
