A client of ours was having problems connecting to their terminal server environment wireless from home. I've narrowed it down to their wireless network at home. An Aironet 1142 was purchased to be placed on their home network to ensure that wireless connectivity would not be an issue going forward.
I'm in the process of configuring it for use, but I'm unable to connect to the web interface and I don't have a rollover cable handy to get to the console. It's currently connected directly to a typical in home cisco switch (not a managed switch). I'm also connected via ethernet. I've confirmed that the WAP pulls an IP address from the DHCP server, but the LED indicator on it is flashing red, green, and amber. The setup guide mentions that it'll do that if it can't reach the management box, but in a home network I'm not really sure what that would indicate.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I was instructed to have it delivered to the client's home by 8am tomorrow...
So, it's a lightweight AP? And you need to convert to IOS?
Download an IOS image
Set your comp ethernet IP to 10.0.0.2
Set up comp as TFTP server using the ethernet interface
Drop IOS image into TFTP folder and rename file to: c1140-k9w7-tar.default
Connect LAP to comp using ethernet
Turn on LAP while holding the reset button in
Wait until lights turn red
LAP will download firmware and reload
