   I have a question with the CAPWAP command. Typically, when I get 1142N from our provider, they have no configuration on them and all I need to do is enter 4 lines of code all starting with CAPWAP and then I have them join the controller and finish the config. This one I just received looks like it has an IOS image or configuration on it. (You can do a show run). I can: show CAPWAP - but I can not enter any CAPWAP commands. They are invalid input detected at marker.  How to I get to the point where I can enter my CAPWAP commands ??

Can you upload a show version of your AP?

#k9w8 is capwap image.

#execute the below command and try capwap commands.

WLC>debug capwap console client

AP#show ip int bri. You shouldn't see BVI interface, and show run config shouldn't show ios stuff. If you're seeing these then reimage the AP with recovery image.
