I am sorry for above mistake ...................

Actually , I have done the correct  thing with

tar -xtract  tftp:// c1130-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA3.tar flash:

I was going through  one of the cisco document and i copied the same command. sorry for inconvenience.

But i worked on the same and finally i gave below command since above command was not working

before that i extracted the above file ( c1130-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA3.tar ) and  after extracting i saw , there were so many file with info, images , html.

I thought i will boot from tftp directly with only IOS file ( c1130-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA3 )  with below command

ap: boot tftp://

and it worked also and after word i got enable mode


then manually , i copied the IOS file from tftp to flash


ap#copy tftp://c1130-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA3 flash:

This also worked out i got IOS in flash: , now i can copy the running-config to startup-config

but when i tried to open with http ( ap )   with below address

I was really confused , i was not at all getting proper html page it was only the characters

The reason behind this , there is no other supported files  in flash :  like info, html, images .... etc.

now i understood , i have to download or copy the entire IOS  file ( tar. file )  which i have downloaded from cisco website.

Now please help to get any option for copying entire file from tftp to flash :
