Hi Lou,


Solution Requirements


Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet access point platforms:


•All 1121 access points


•All 1130AG access points


•All 1140 access points


•All 1240AG access points


•All 1250 series access points


Note The Upgrade Utility version 3.2 does not support the conversion of 1140 and 1250 series autonomous access points to lightweight mode. To convert these autonomous access points to lightweight mode, telnet to the access point and issue the following command to upgrade the IOS:
archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp: //location/image-name


For more information, see Upgrading Cisco IOS on an Autonomous Access Point at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk722/tk809/technologies_configuration_example09186a00809f0e94.shtml.


•For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access point (1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210 and 1230 AP) platforms, it depends on the radio:


–if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported


–if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported


The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only, A only, or both G and A.


Note For an access point that contains dual radios, if one of the two radios is an LWAPP-supported radio, the upgrade tool still performs the upgrade. The tool adds a warning message to the detailed log that indicates which radio is unsupported.


•All 1310 AG access points


•Cisco C3201 Wireless Mobile Interface Card (WMIC)


Note The second-generation 802.11a radios contain two part numbers.


Access points must be running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)JA or later before you can perform the upgrade.

After searching, I know 1242AG can be upgraded to lap. How about 1200 AP version 12.04? It maybe upgraded to IOS version. But not sure whether it can be upgrade lightweight.
