Aironet 1250 in lightweight mode?

Can the Aironet 1250 802.11n WAPs be made to run in lightweight mode like the 1240's can?

Been poking around the cisco site and cant find anything that clearly says yes or no.

thanks

Yes, the AP1250 can run in LWAPP mode.

Make sure when converting it that it has a WLC to connect to so it can get its full config. THe controller needs to be running 4.1.185 or later

Re: Aironet 1250 in lightweight mode?

it needs to be running 4.2.61.0 or later, and I would say 4.2.112.0 or later to get the low power enhancements

My bad. Its a 1252. Correct. 4.2.61 or later. I have a preference for 5.2 with 1252 or 4.2.130.6 which has some special feature and caveat fixes around the marvell chipset.

Y'sure can. Here's a link to show you how it's done:

1. The EASY way:

Upgrading Autonomous Cisco Aironet Access Points to Lightweight Mode

www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/conversion/lwapp/upgrade/guide/lwapnote.html

2. The CLI way:

Requirements:

• Image file (The recovery file has the prefix “rcv” in the image name, such as c1200-rcvk9w7-tar.122-15.JA.tar);

• AP is connected to the Wireless LAN Controller; and

• AP can ping the TFTP server where the image is located.

Procedure

1. Copy the recovery file to the AP using the following command:

archive tar /x tftp:/// flash:

2. Let the AP boot on this image:

boot system flash://.bin

3. Reboot the AP.

OPTIONAL

• DO NOT ALLOW THE AP TO JOIN THE WIRELESS LAN CONTROLLER.

• IF POSSIBLE, type the following commands:

 clear lwapp private-config (This will bring the AP to factory default.);

 clear lwapp ap ip address

 clear lwapp ap hostname

 clear lwapp ap controller ip address

4. Let the AP connect to the Wireless LAN controller.

OPTIONAL

If an AP refuses to join the Wireless LAN Controller, type the following command from the AP:

lwapp ap controller ip address

Hope this helps.
