Upgrade Cisco AP 1142

Hi there

I have Cisco AP 1142 standalone and I want this one to operate with WLC.

I have searched in google, they said I need to upgrade AP1142.

I don't know how to upgrade it. Anyone can help me?

Take a look at this link... you will need to be able to download the lightweight image in order to convert from autonomous to lightweight.

Here is an example of the archive string

archive download-sw /overwrite /force-reload tftp://10.10.45.128/c1130-k9w7-tar.124-25d.JA1.tar

Re: Upgrade Cisco AP 1142

Two things. You will need the recovery code and you will need one of the few ways set up for the ap to find the controller. That could be dns, option 43, broadcast etc ..

You good ?

Re: Upgrade Cisco AP 1142

The archive command mentioned on previous posts is the most easy and popular way to convert an access point from autonomous to lightweight. Of course you need to have a TFTP server ready for this. If you don't have one you can go to http://tftpd32.jounin.net and get a very light and easy-to-use TFTP program.

Then your computer and AP should be on the same subnet (or have IP connectifity), execute the archive command and wait for the file to be transfered.

If you have issues getting the image from cisco.com due to priviledges I recomend you to open a TAC case.

We can provide access to these images if necesary. In this case there should not be a problem becaus you have a wireless LAN controller.

I hope this information helps

Check on the following link.

The exaplme lists an 1130 AP but the procedure will work for any Cisco AP in IOS mode that you want to convert to LWAPP the only diference will be the file name that in your case instead of saying 1130 would say 1140
