Introduction

Can the Cisco Aironet Autonomous access point be converted to Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) using the CLI?

Resolution

The access points (APs) cannot be converted from autonomous mode to LWAPP mode via the CLI. The Upgrade Tool is the only method you can use. A newer version of the Upgrade Tool (version 1.7) will be available soon and is able to convert more than one AP at a time. In order to download any images, firmware versions, tools, and so forth, refer to the Wireless Download page.

Obtaining the Upgrade Tool and Upgrade Image

The autonomous mode to lightweight mode access point upgrade process is only supported for access point running Cisco IOS Releases 12.3(7)JA and later. The access points must be upgraded to this version or a later version before they can be converted to lightweight mode. Consult the Cisco Aironet documentation on upgrade procedures for autonomous access points.

You can find the upgrade tool and the upgrade image at the Download Software page on Cisco.com.
