We do not wish to use a controller and simply wish to plug our APs into a network switch. I understand that I need to revert the APs back to Autonomous mode, as LWAPP always looks for a controller? ...
I have obtained c1240-k9w7-tar.default, and attempted to upload to the AP via solarwinds TFTP, the server can see the AP (both 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2) but it keeps timing out on the upload, I have tried a straight-through and a cross-over cable but to no avail ...
TFTP usually fails because of file name mismatches or path mismatch.
The filename you request must *exactly* match, spelling and case "abcde" and Abcde" and ABcde" are three different files as far as TFTP are concerned; the pathname must also be exact, including case.
Also make sure you set up Solarwinds to point to the directory containing the file, then reference it as a "root" directory in your TFTP request (i.e., even though the file is in C:\Temp\Cisco, you reference it from TFTP as tftp///)
Also note that Solarwinds has a file size limitation (as do most TFTP servers) of ~32Meg. 3COM's 3Cdaemon VERSION 2.x does NOT have the 32 Meg limitation.
If you search the forums, Rob Huffman has described a condensed version of the instructions for recovering an AP and / or switching it back to Automomous mode.
