21 Apr 12 Cisco LWAP to Autonomous Conversion

Convert Cisco LWAP to Autnomous (Stand Alone)

It is a pretty straight forward process just like converting Autonomous to LWAP. Main difference is the IOS Image for Autonomous vs LWAP. Usually you’ll see k9w7 in the Cisco autonomous AP images and in case of Cisco LWAP you will see rcvk9w8. Note: Always confirm and make sure that you download the correct IOS image from the Cisco’s website regardless what you find on the web, just in case they decide to change their naming convention/scheme etc.

Ok now to accomplish this task enable command line access on the LWAP. Log into it and run the following command:

“archive download-sw /override /reload tftp://x.x.x.x/filename”

x.x.x.x is the IP of your TFTP server. This command will load the new software on the LWAP and then reload the AP with the Autonomous image
