Cisco Aironet 1250 help

So I figure I got an incorrect or corrupt IOS.  I tried to perform the mode reset, but it starts to transfer and then errors out.  Here's an example of what the output is at, and it just sticks here:


IOS Bootloader - Starting system.

So as you can see above, I tried to load another image in this output, but it starts uploading, then gives "

ERROR: Problem extracting files from archive.Loading "flash:/c1200-k9w7-mx.123-8.JEE/c1200-k9w7-mx.123-8.JEE"  and continues with the same IOS, which sticks for hours at executing with no sign of failing.  So I am unable to get a new image in it, and the one loaded appears to just stick.  Any idea how to get around this?

You have the wrong image. The one you have is for a 1200.

This is what you need.

First off, thank you much for the response.  I came to this same conclusion not long after posting the topic.  I got it off ebay, probably not the best place to get eletronics, but haven't gotten burned (till now). 


The problem is, I can't "break" it like a normal router to get into rommon.  Every time it tries to decompress the incorrect IOS and freezes at executing...  I have tried to do the TFTP mode solution, but it starts transferring then gives this error:

ERROR: Problem extracting files from archive.I suspect perhaps not enough space? 

Though from the flash output, I don't think that's the problem.  I know I am using the TFTP solution correctly, I have used it with routers and switches with no issues in the past (it's pretty hard to mess that up anyhow).  I've been looking all over google for anyone with a similar issue, and have been unable to find anything..


I do appreciate your time, and let me know if you have any insight on how to fix this.
