Hi

Looking to upgrade Cisco access points model 1130AG with no LAN Controller.

Cisco website appears to be a real long and cumbersome search trying to locate firmware for products. Current version of access point software is 12.3(8)JA2.

I believe upgrade version is 12.4(21A)JA

There must be an easier way to obtain these firmware upgrades.

Hoping to the upgrade through the access point, not TFTP.

Thanks

Hi

The Cisco website shows the latest version as 12.4(25d)JA1, there may not be anything different or bug fixed between this and the firmware that you have. For upgrading if it's anything like the 1200 series that I've used lots there's an option on the browser interface to upgrade the firmware. You'll need to allow popups on the browser but it works really well and is quite straight forward.

But I'd need to download the file in order to browse for the update through the access point, which isn't always easy to locate on Cisco
