configure aironet 1140

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I just configured a cisco wireless controller 2100 and connected 2 aironet 1140 to it.

I can see the 2 AP on the controller but I don't see any wireless signal.

It shows on the AP box that the radios are turned off. I then tried connecting to the AP via the IP I found on the controller but that doesn't work. I then access it via CLI but I can't enter privilege mode.
I can enter the exec mode but conf t doesn't work.
on the AP it keeps reloading this:
*Jun 11 17:54:10.604: %LWAPP-3-CLIENTERRORLOG: Set Transport Address: no more AP
 manager IP addresses remain
examining image...
Loading file /c1140...

*Jun 11 17:57:26.612: lwapp_image_proc: unable to open tar file

I tried resetting the AP by pressing the mode button and power the AP but that doesn't seems to be working either.

I am stuck here and any help will be greatly appreciated
