I have a new CAP-3500 series access point and i need to convert it to autonomous since my controller has not yet arrived.
i know for the fact that it can be done on 1200 and 1100 series AP but i am not sure if it is still possible with newer model APs.
I cannot find a document saying that it is also working for these new AP models.
Please help. Thanks!
I have successfuly converted it to the 15.2 version, at first i tried the earlier version of the Autonomous IOS but it was looking for "k9w7" which only 15.2 version has, so i was not successful in converting to lower version.
You can't run autonomous IOS version 12.X for the 3500.
But as the note said that 15.2 version is site survey mode only. what will be the impact of this for the production?
I was able to configure basic single SSID with WPA2-PSK. but what are the limitations for the "site-survey only mode"? will it support raidus authentication and multiple SSID broadcast?
It wasn't meant to go into wifi production, take note of that. You're probably the first I've read who wants to run autonomous IOS as a service. I'd strongly recommend you wait for your WLC.
If you have a valid Service Contract then you can download the IOS from here.
