Radio Failure

I just bought a cisco 1141n to play with and when i turned it on the logging on the console said "Interface Dot11Radio0: not starting because stop-on-failure set"

I am also getting insufficient power message. using a 3500yl from hp that is poe so not sure what my issue is. 

Is this just because I have not set it up yet or is the radio actually dead?

 

Thanks

This is the reason why your 802.11b radio won't come up.  The radio-specific firmware is missing.

 

Most effective way is to overwrite and unpack the entire TAR file.  So let the AP boot normally.  Don't worry about the radio for the time being. 

 

Make sure you have the TAR file located in the correct folder of your TFTP server.  Use the command "archive download-sw /over /force tftp://<TFTP IP address>/filename.tar".  

 

Once the process is complete the AP will reboot.

I found what my problem is. I

I found what my problem is. I downloaded the firmware but it was in a .tar archive. so i opened up the archive and only copied the ios image, not the radio firmware and a few other drivers/files....so my question is how can i copy the entire .tar archive using xmodem to the AP and have it extract on its own? Or do I need to copy each file individually and do mkdir on the flash to create it?

 

Thanks for the help

will the same command work

will the same command work with xmodem? for some reason I cannot get this AP to talk to the network. So I'm using xmodem. If not where could I find a command that would do the same thing over the xmodem.

 

Thank you for your help

You can try mode button

You can try mode button option to see if that works. In that case you need to rename your file as "c1140-k9w7-tar.default"

Give it a go & see.

Your AP has booted up fine

Your AP has booted up fine (except for the radio not working).  Using XModem is slow and you're not going to fix anything because XModem you'll be downloading the BIN file.  

 

Boot the AP normally and use the method I've posted above.
