Follow the exact procedure taking care of placing the image in the root directory or any separate folder.. use the image for 1130 not 350 as below example is for 350..

Using the CLI

Follow the steps below to reload the access point image using the CLI. When the access point begins to boot, you interrupt the boot process and use boot loader commands to load an image from a TFTP server to replace the image in the access point.

Note Your access point configuration is not changed when using the CLI to reload the image file.

Step 1 Open the CLI using a Telnet session or a connection to the access point console port.

Step 2 Reboot the access point by removing power and reapplying power.

Step 3 Let the access point boot until it begins to inflate the image. When you see these lines on the CLI, press Esc:

Loading "flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.v122_13_ja.20031010/c350-k9w7-mx.v122_13_ja.20031010"
...###########################################################################
################################################################################
################################################################################
####################


Step 4 When the ap: command prompt appears, enter the set command to assign an IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway to the access point.

Note You must use upper-case characters when you enter the IP-ADDR, NETMASK, and DEFAULT_ROUTER options with the set command.

Your entries might look like this example:

ap: set IP_ADDR 192.168.133.160

ap: set NETMASK 255.255.255.0

ap: set DEFAULT_ROUTER 192.168.133.1


Step 5 Enter the tftp_init command to prepare the access point for TFTP.

ap: tftp_init


Step 6 Enter the tar command to load and inflate the new image from your TFTP server. The command must include this information:

•the -xtract option, which inflates the image when it is loaded

•the IP address of your TFTP server

•the directory on the TFTP server that contains the image

•the name of the image

•the destination for the image (the access point Flash)

Your entry might look like this example:

ap: tar -xtract tftp://192.168.130.222/images/c350-k9w7-tar.122-13.JA1 flash:


Step 7 When the display becomes full the CLI pauses and displays --MORE--. Press the spacebar to continue.

-- MORE --


If you do not press the spacebar to continue, the process eventually times out and the access point stops inflating the image.

Step 8 Enter the set BOOT command to designate the new image as the image that the access point uses when it reboots. The access point creates a directory for the image that has the same name as the image, and you must include the directory in the command. Your entry might look like this example:

ap: set BOOT flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1


Step 9 Enter the set command to check your bootloader entries.

ap: set

BOOT=flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1

DEFAULT_ROUTER=192.168.133.1

IP_ADDR=192.168.133.160

NETMASK=255.255.255.0


Step 10 Enter the boot command to reboot the access point. When the access point reboots, it loads the new image.

ap: boot

Hi,

Thanks for your quick response.

I have tried all the option which is mentioned in your response.

My AP is having Flash: file because I have unexpectedly deleted flash: file so if i see in dir flash : i am not having any file in flash:

Now i tried to load the IOS through TFTP with C1130-K9w7-mx.124-10b.JDA3 file  but it shows that " No such file or directory "  as this file is not tar. file.

I used below command for load the IOS :

ap: tar -xtract tftp:\\ ip address\ directory path of file \file name ( C1130-K9w7-mx.124-10b.JDA3 )  flash :

Please suggest me for loading the C1130-K9w7-mx.124-10b.JDA3 since it does not have tar. file.

One more thing i would like to point out , I am not able ping AP as well from tftp server.

Hi surendra,

Now i have converted lwapp to autonomous :

i have used the below command for booting the ios from tftp

ap: boot tftp:// ip address of tftp server / directory path of ios

ap: reset

after that i got the enable mode

ap> then i gave command that is

ap> en

ap# copy tftp: flash:

then if i see the dir flash:

i am getting ios in flash but i have one issue now

if i configure ap and try to save , it is not getting saved and if ap is rebooting , all configuration whichever i have done , will be lost and it will come up with default configuration

Even if i see the product/Model number , i am getting AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9 instead of AIR-AP1131AG-A-K9 .

Please look into this and suggest me for proper solution.

set IP-ADDR 10.0.0.1
set DEFAULT_ROUTER 10.0.0.2 (yout laptop/PC IP address)
set NETMASK 255.255.255.0
tftp_init
reset.

but when i give the below command , i am not able to get any response from ap :

tar -xtract tftp://10.0.0.5/ c1240-rcvk9w8-tar.124-10b.JA3.tar flash:

what to do , i am really stuck with that ...

I have attached the details when i could upload the ios which was not valid.

I have downloaded the ios from cisco site .... below the name of file with size 5450.00 KB
