How do you do a factory reset from the console on a Cisco AIR-LAP1252AG-A-K9?

I have the password. Holding down the  mode button while the access point is booting does not seem to do the trick.

It's looks like your AP is lwapp & try the below & see. Try the last two commands & see if that works. If not try with the first command as well.


AP0023.045e.df34#debug console cli


AP0023.045e.df34#delete flash:private-multiple-fs



AP0023.045e.df34#reload

If it has a autonomous image you can try "write default-config" on the AP priviledge mode CLI.


If it has a lightweight image you can try "erase /all nvram:" on the AP priviledge mode CLI.


Mode button option & GUI option is described in this doc
