I have run into a major issue with an autonomous Cisco 1142AP. We were in the midst of a firmware upgrade when something went wrong and caused the AP to reboot in an error mode. Basically the unit was flashing Blue, amber, red. We unmounted the unit from the wall, connected to the console, and it would now only flash red over and over.
We pulled out the cisco guides and performed a factory reset on the unit. This still does not work. and the contents of our flash directory is empty. All we get is a ROMMON AP prompt on the unit. If I issue a set command, I can see the default settings for IP, netmask, etc.
I cannot access the unit via the network, even after setting IP info and matching it up to my laptop. Since I have no network connectivity, I can't TFTP a new IOS file to the unit.
I am stumped. Any ideas how to get the config as if it was out of the box, or an alternate way to TFTP to the unit?
Here is a summary of what I get when I factory reset:
Unfortunately I had followed that portion of the procedure but I was unsuccessful. Unfortunately I could not connect to the unit at all.
What bothers me now is I cannot type anything in the CLI after I boot up, either normally, by interupting the boot, or by performing a reset.
Edit: I am now able to type in the CLI, but there is also kinds of bizarro information when I run the set command. Is there a way to clean up this set config? Also, is there any other mechanism to transfer the IOS image other than TFTP. Like I said, I can't connect to the unit via network, only console.
