CIsco AIR LAP1131AG E K9 Status LED = Yellow; Ethernet LED = Off; Radio LED = blinking Red in a pattern, red off then red red, Our AP isn't working it won't show up on our Cisco WLC 2125 anymore and this is the LED indicators, I've checked in the manual and this combination of LEDs do not exists??
I've tried reseting it by unplugging it holding mode then pluging it in until the lights flash green. This doesn't fix the issue, it just goes back to how it is before with the yellow status and red radio LED
connect blue cabel on one side on AP and other side to laptop.
Then start Hyperterminal or any other termulation software with these settings:
Bits per sec : 9600
Data bits : 8
Parity : none
Stop bits : 1
Flow control : none
and then selet right com port.
Then you will see the bootup process from AP.
It looks normal.
Your AP is connected to switch ? it must be access port in specific VLAN.
AP must get IP to discover WLC.

It isn't showing up on the controller and can't access it via wifi either. Not sure what is wrong with it? It seems to be picking up an IP but doesn't do anything else. I've tried putting it in image recovery mode status turns pink but doesn't recover the image. Is there anything else I can try?
can you paste these:
from WLC: sh sysinfo
From AP: sh version
and also paste the entire bootup process from AP(Reboot and then paste the complete logs)
WLC and AP are compatibile so thats not the issue.
So now you should do these:
Hold the mode button for 10 seconds and if device comes up then issue these commands:
AP#clear lwapp/capwap private-config
AP#lwapp/capwap ap ip address
AP#lwapp/capwap ap ip default-gateway
AP#lwapp/capwap ap controller ip address
I've done that, the AP seemed to be doing something I thought maybe it was fixed now but it still goes back to not working. The status was flashing green, red, red and the ehternet flashing green while the radio was flashing amber. But after a couple of minutes it went back to just flashing red on the radio and yellow on status. Also now it is just restarting, it says failed to fall back to DHCP
Edit: How could I maybe re-load a new image on to the AP to see if that fixes the issue?
If you can access via CLI then you can upgrade New image on LAP:
1. Start TFTP server on laptop, connect AP via console cable and with ethernet cable to your laptop.
2. Assign the IP address to LAP in same subnet as your LAPTOP.
3. Put the new image in root directory of tftp server.
4. use this command.
AP# archive download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://IP address/ Image
Did you used this command before starting :
debug lwapp console cli
Did you converted this AP from autonomous mode to LAP?
If yes then i will suggest to change the mode to autonomous(k9w7) and then again upload a new image(k9w8).
here is the procedure.
***if still have problem then come on teamviewer(if you want then only )
No cisco web is working perfectly.
do you have a valid CCO id with smarnet contract ?? then only you can download new IOS for AP:
Autonomous AP image:
LAP AP image:
Ok everything is setup, image and also TFTP server however I don;t seem to be able to ping the server or the AP. They are both on the same subnet with IP server 10.0.0.5 255.0.0.0 and AP 10.0.0.1 255.0.0.0 But they can't connect to eachother?
reload requested by lwapp client, reload reason could not fall back to DHCP, what does this mean?
Means AP lost the IP address from its interface.
And make like this:
AP: 10.0.0.2 255.255.255.0
TFTP: 10.0.0.5 255.255.255.0
