i am having trouble saving the configuration of the embedded wireless AP on a 1941w router. i can get both the router and AP configured, and i test it with a laptop using the LAN and Wireless. Everything works. I issue the copy run start command to save the AP config, and i verify that it is saved by doing show startup config. i then save the router config the same way. Laptops continues to prove that everything is working.
I issue the reload command, and it asks me if i want to reload the AP as well. i say yes.
it then askes me if i want to save the AP configuration. i am not sure why it is asking because usually (at least on the 1801w and 861w routers), it only asks this if there are unsaved changes for the AP config. regardless of what i say (yes or no), the final outcome is the same. after the router reboots, the router's configuration is there, but the laptop cannot connect wirelessly (because the AP config is gone).
i try to console to the AP, and here is what i get
test1941w#service-module wlan-ap 0 status Service Module is Cisco wlan-ap0 Service Module supports session via TTY line 67 Service Module is trying to recover from error Service Module reset on error is disabled Service Module heartbeat-reset is enabled Service Module is in fail open Service Module status is not available
test1941w#service-module wlan-ap 0 session
Trying 172.16.99.1, 2067 ... Open
Connecting to AP console, enter Ctrl-^ followed by x, then "disconnect" to return to router prompt

after the reset, i get to reconfig my AP, and the cycle repeats.
