cisco aironet 1200 series bad flash

Hello,

1200 series AP acting up. So i flashed the firm ware. It did not go so good, now cannot get AP back online. Hooked up to hyperterminal and can see that it runs through checks and then starts at beginning. How can I reflash using hyperterminal or other software. Last line before reboot is:

Loading "flash:/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx/c1200-rcvk9w8-mx" . . . ##########################################################

Re: cisco aironet 1200 series bad flash

Hi,

i don't know why it doesn't boot. Maybe You have a AP1242, then the file should look like this: c1240-rcvk9w8..., not c1200-rcvk9w8...

To upload a new file, do the following:

Step 1 The PC you intend to use must be configured with a static IP address in the range of 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.30.

Step 2 Make sure that the PC contains the access point image file (such as c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA.tar for an 1100 series access point or c1200-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA.tar for a 1200 series access point) in the TFTP server folder and that the TFTP server is activated. For additional information, refer to the "Obtaining the Access Point Image File" and "Obtaining TFTP Server Software" sections.

Step 3 Rename the access point image file in the TFTP server folder. For example, if the image file is c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JA.tar for an 1100 series access point, rename the file to c1100-k9w7-tar.default.

Step 4 Connect the PC to the access point using a Category 5 (CAT5) Ethernet cable.

Step 5 Disconnect power (the power jack for external power or the Ethernet cable for in-line power) from the access point.

Step 6 Press and hold the MODE button while you reconnect power to the access point.

Step 7 Hold the MODE button until the status LED turns red (approximately 20 to 30 seconds), and release the MODE button.

Step 8 Wait until the access point reboots as indicated by all LEDs turning green followed by the Status LED blinking green.

Step 9 After the access point reboots, you must reconfigure the access point by using the Web-browser interface or the CLI.
