WLC 2106

I just recived a WLC2106 and 6 ap1142. I seem to need to upgrade the ios on the wlc to 5.0, it came with 4.0.2. I cannot download the ios because I do not have a support contarct or cco. Why sell a WLC without the right IOS.

Please help.

Re: WLC 2106

Please contact your authorized Cisco dealer for the firmwares and bootstrap files.

The dealer can either arrange for you to have access to the Cisco download page or they can download the firmwares themselves and forward you the files needed.

Just want to let you know that you need to follow the upgrade matrix.

Firmwares with the "M" in the end means that it's Mesh AP firmwares (example:

It is recommended that you upgrade the bootstrap first, reboot, upgrade the firmware and reboot.

Hope this helps.

Re: WLC 2106

when you mean follow the upgrade matrix, I have to upgrade each version, so lets say i am at 4.0 and what to go to 6 i would have to upgrade from 4 to 5 than 5 to 6 and cannot jump 2-3 versions in one shot ?

You can upgrade to 4.2.176 then go to 6.0.182
