Cisco AP1231G failed to flash the interface on failed boot

Hello,

I have an issue with Cisco AIR-AP1231G-E-K9 since I have rebooted it to reload startup conf :

 

Now, radio is disabled. On web interface, Radio mac address is 0000.0000.0000

 

I tried a no shut on Dot11radio0 but didn't work.

I tried to upload a new firmware but didn't solve the issue.

Here you can find result of sh log :

Sep 23 10:07:54.989 GMT: Failed to flash the interface on failed boot

 

As you can see , I have multiples line saying that radio is loading firmware but at the end we have "Failed to flash the interface on failed boot"

 

 Did someone had this issue already ?

This is the reason why your 802.11b radio won't come up.  The radio-specific firmware is either missing or corrupted.

 

Most effective way is to overwrite and unpack the entire TAR file.  So let the AP boot normally.  Don't worry about the radio for the time being. 

 

Make sure you have the TAR file located in the correct folder of your TFTP server.  Use the command "archive download-sw /over /force tftp://<TFTP IP address>/filename.tar".  

 

Once the process is complete the AP will reboot.
