881W Will no longer boot with Radio Card installed

Hello!

I have a Cisco 881W that will no longer boot/operate properly if the internal radio card is installed.

If the card is installed, all I get is the following...

System Bootstrap, Version 12.4(22r)YB5, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Testing lower main memory - data equals address

Testing lower main memory - checkerboard

Testing lower main memory - inverse checkerboard

Clearing lower memory rommon use

read_sys_eeprom: not a smart eeprom

Search for cpu type (Field ID 0x09) failed.

Using default value...

Search for Controller ID (Field ID 0x40) failed.

C880 platform with 262144 Kbytes of main memory

Readonly ROMMON initialized

rommon 1 >

if I do a dev I get nothing. If I do a dir flash: I get "bad device name". My cookie shows FF in all positions.

BUT......

If I remove the entire WiFi Radio card (both boards), then It boots fine, cookie appears intact, devs appear, IOS loads, just without the WAP.

Any chance this is a matter of a file getting deleted or corrupted or is this certainly bad hardware? The router sans Wifi appears fully functional.

Thanks!

You should be able to RMA the device. Search the forum for a post on the limited lifetime warranty:). They explain it good there.
