Cisco IOS download for Cisco 2000 series WLC

Does anyone know where to find a download of the Cisco Software version 4.1.x for a 2000 series Wireless LAN Controller? We are currently at 4.0.219.0, and we have a huge number of WPA MIC errors for legitimate machines. I have read many places that version 4.1.x will fix those errors, but for some reason I cannot download them from Cisco's support site.

You need a service contract in order to download that kind of software. Contact your local Cisco reseller/partner and they will be able to help you.

The odd thing was that we were able to download updates just a couple of months ago. The same software version was available, but we weren't having the same issue so we didn't download. There is no other way to get the software other than getting a new Smartnet?

No there is no legal way of getting software updates without paying.

Thanks for the info. I didn't want an illegal way to get software updates, but HP and many other companies provide updates for free, I just thought perhaps there were free versions of the software Cisco would give out.

After all, version 4.1 is not the newest version and we paid a good price for the equipment we purchased from Cisco. Anyway, I guess it is good information for someone considering getting Cisco equipment in the future. Thanks.
