Hi,Does 1310 booting properly


Does 1310 booting properly ? Please attach the console output when you power cycle this AP.

If it is properly booting you can try to upload the new image like below . Note that if you could use the 12.4.x image on this model that would be prefer.

1310#archive download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://

I have managed to Upload a new IOS using Xmodem and it was working fine Thanks for the advice and now i am being challenged with another issue "Baud Rate"

the story is the IOS that i have uploaded on my the bridge is faulty so i wanted to change the IOS using Xmodem and then i set the BAUD Rate to 115200 and from the moment i change it the bridge gives me unreadable wired characters i  closed the CLI and opened it by changing the consol port to a rate of 115200 and then from that point onwards i dont get any thing on the CLI but the Unkown characters comes appearing i read on some forums and i just learned that i dont have to set the Baud Rate more than 38400. did i make a big mistake? can this be fixed please help me ?
