We currently have 8 1242's and they all work fine, however we recently baught one 2nd hand one which was previously connected to a WLC, it lights up fine but it wont detect in IPSU even though the dhcp has assigned an IP to it. I would like to login through the web page to configure it but I am not able to do that either. It responds to ping fine though.
So I no longer wont it be a LAP, so I tried to console in, to run flash_init etc. but when I try and give the <ESC> command (during the flash loader) it just carries on and ignores all input. I have used the correct settings Baud rate 9600, no parity, no flow control , databits 8, etc. but nothing happens it just goes through the boot and then asks me to press enter to input. i can then browse the directories and rename files. but I just cant get it to holt the loader so I can reset, I tried rename of config.txt and env_vars but that has't worked either. It keeps stating that it is looking for LWAPP/CAPWAP but unfortunately we don't have a WLC
Is there another way I can reset it or is there some magic way in whic I can send the ESC command
