converting AIR-LAP1131G-A-K9 to LWAPP

I noticed that this AP was $350 as compared to the AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9 which is $450. The latter comes with an A radio which I don't need. But it comes shipped LWAPP which is good. Can I convert the cheaper one to LWAPP?

The models are:

The release notes, only state that the 1130 is supported. It does not state what radio config is supported. I'd go ahead and *shudder* assume, that the 1130G would be supported. So you should be able to convert the AP to support the LWAPP image.

Re: converting AIR-LAP1131G-A-K9 to LWAPP

Sure you can. First, download the LWAPP image and do the following:

Autonomous to LWAPP (Shortcut)

Requirements:

• Image file (The recovery file has the prefix “rcv” in the image name, such as c1200-rcvk9w7-tar.122-15.JA.tar);

• AP is connected to the Wireless LAN Controller; and

• AP can ping the TFTP server where the image is located.

Procedure

1. Copy the recovery file to the AP using the following command:

archive tar /x tftp:/// flash:

2. Let the AP boot on this image:

boot system flash://.bin

3. Reboot the AP.

OPTIONAL

• DO NOT ALLOW THE AP TO JOIN THE WIRELESS LAN CONTROLLER.

• IF POSSIBLE, type the following commands:

 clear lwapp private-config (This will bring the AP to factory default.);

 clear lwapp ap ip address

 clear lwapp ap hostname

 clear lwapp ap controller ip address

4. Let the AP connect to the Wireless LAN controller.

OPTIONAL

If an AP refuses to join the Wireless LAN Controller, type the following command from the AP:

lwapp ap controller ip address

Does this help?
