I have just started a new 1252 access point and I get the status blinking green red yellow + ethernet blinking green and radio blinking amber.
The AP responds to ping but I cannot telnet it.
I understoods that the blinking scheme if that the AP is not finding the controller as I do not have any.
I bought this AP to work on standalone mode and it seems that its not loaded for that. When I try to download the IOS file to switch to standalone mode, I got an unauthorized error as I do not have a service contract.
How should I proceed to use the AP in standalone mode ?
This problem is due to the wrong firmware inside the access point. The firmware you have is looking for a wireless server that you do not have. You need to load the firmware for standalone access point and this will solve the problem.
You can find this firmware on the support area of cisco.com if you have access to it. If not, ask your reseller.
