Upgrading Lightweight AP to Autonomous

I have been trying for days to properly load firmware "ap3g2-k9w7-tar.153-3.JAB.tar" in order to make two 3602 AP's I purchased autonomous. I need these AP's for site surveys and need to figure it out this week. I am able to get the firmware loaded but I can't seem to figure out the right order of commands in the boot process.

 

I need/want to be able to log into a GUI interface using a statically assigned IP to configure. Any assistance is appreciated.

Did you try the mode button

Did you try the mode button method explained here. You have to rename your image to "ap3g2-k9w7-tar.default" to use in this method.

Otherwise follow this & see

http://mrncciew.com/2012/10/20/lightweight-to-autonomous-conversion/

Once converted to autonomous you can assign a static IP & default gateway like this. Then if needed you can access GUI

interface bvi 1

ip address x.x.x.x <subnet_mask>

!

ip default gateway x.x.x.y

Hi,

 

If you think you have loaded the Autonomous firmware perfectly the use "sh flash" to see if it is there.

You should see both K9w8 and the other k9w7.

Then using "sh boot" ..check where boot variable is pointing ? If it is pointing to k9w8 image then change it to point it to k9w7 image and then reload the AP.Next time it should come up with Autonomous image. "(config)#boot boothlpr ?".

After that you can do ip related configuration and open GUI.
