I have a set of APs and I need to buy a controller for them. please see the specification below:

Product/Model Number: AIR-AP1232AG-E-K9

Top Assembly Serial Number: FCZ1032Z022

System Software Filename: c1200-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA2

System Software Version: 12.3(8)JA2

Bootloader Version: 12.3(2)JA4

I am planning to install the 4404 WLAN controller.

do I need to make any upgrade to the software used by the APs?

thank you.

You need two things:

1.  You need to prepare the LWAP image to convert your autonomous AP (aAP) to light-weight AP (LWAP); and
2.  You need to use the Cisco Upgrade Tool to convert your aAP to LWAP.

Hope this helps.  May I request if you can rate my post if this is helpful?  Thank you very much.
