Fatal error on ap1200

I used a new ap1200 with an 11.42 image on it and tried downloading an config file to it from a file taken from an ap1200 point with 12.00T image. I got the following message: 2097/01/10 01:01:01 (FATAL): Radio Enable Failed with error "Bad

Authentication Type". Temporarily Disabling WEP Encryption and re-Attempting

Enable. THIS ERROR MAY INDICATE TAMPERING WITH THE RADIO AND/OR ITS ENCRYPTION

KEYS!

I get the line (Auto Apply On) :BOttom, :Down, ^R, =, <ENTER>, or [Link Text]:

but cannot enter a command. There is no reset button on the new ap1200, what can I do to reset to factory default?

Re: Fatal error on ap1200

I have tried the proceedure and after the 3 messages of "Fatal" and the prompt I entered the :resetall command. There is no response other than a representation of the "(Auto Apply On) :BOttom, :Down, ^R, =, , or [Link Text]:" Is there any other proceedure you are aware of that would reset to default?

Thanks - Jim D.

You need to enter that :resetall command during that 2 minutes from initial power on, and right after Summary Status screen reappears.

Do you see summary screen appeared at all?

You can post console log from power on here.

You have WEP enabled but do not have a WEP key. Enter a WEP key and this message will go away.
