this is "show version" for Aironet 1240AG.

it was LightweightAP.

But now I guess it's AutonomousAP, because I active Autonomous.

So how to discerm?

Is  "flash:/c1240-k9w7-mx.124-21a.JY/c1240-k9w7-mx.124-21a.JY"  Autonomous?

Thankfully this is actually very easy.  If the AP is loaded with an autonomous image it will be a k9w7, if it has a CUWN image it will be a k9w8.
