I have just started a new 1252 access point and I get the status blinking green red yellow + ethernet blinking green and radio blinking amber.
The AP responds to ping but I cannot telnet it.
I understoods that the blinking scheme if that the AP is not finding the controller as I do not have any.
I bought this AP to work on standalone mode and it seems that its not loaded for that. When I try to download the IOS file to switch to standalone mode, I got an unauthorized error as I do not have a service contract.
How should I proceed to use the AP in standalone mode ?
You need to get hold of the autonomous IOS (aIOS) to be able to successfully convert your AP from LWAP to autonomous.
Contact the authorized Cisco reseller if they can download the firmware for you.
