Hello Guys,
On a Cisco 800W, is there a way to load a configuration from the USB port to the AccessPoint. The Router is very straight forward, Copy USB Startup........  Since the AP is a service mod of the router it doesn't have a direct connection to the USB port.

How, or can you map the AP to the USB port?

You can try enabling the TFTP server on the router and then copy to the AP from the tftp.

I would, but unfortunately. Some bone head installed the Lightweight IOS on the AP, and I don't have a controller to connect it to. So, I really don't have many options, I was hoping to either TFTP the file to the Routers flash, or use the USB.

However I do not think I can access the routers flash, or usb from the AP.

When the Integrated AP is running the LWAPP image.. that is.. "(AP801-RCVK9W8-M)" that is..

 

"(AP801-RCVK9 "W8" -M)" indicates its LWAPP

 

W7 >> In the image indicates Autonomous Image

 

Config t command will not work on the LWAPP image..  so the AP should use the Autonomous image to run those  commands... the below commands will help you out to overcome this  issue..

 
Configuration Example

 

From the router config mode issue the command..

 

 

Router>en

Router#config t

Router(config t)#service-module wlan-ap0 bootimage autonomous

Router(config t)#service-module wlan-ap 0 reload

 

This will bring back the AP to autonomous..

 

99% the above will work.. if not.. use the below manual process..

 

That is..

 

Download TFTP d32 on your laptop and install it..

 

-    Download the latest IOS image: www.cisco.com downloads for AP801 series.

 

Cisco.com   --- Click on the Support tab in top--- Then click   Download   software------ Choose Wireless --- Then select "Integrated  routers and   switches section" from product list-Then choose the router  model -   choose IOS image.. (12.4(21a)JY)

 

>> Now log into the AP module from the router and issue the command..

 

AP>en

 

AP#debug capwap console cli OR debug lwapp console cli

 

AP#config t <now the config command will work>

 

AP(config-t)#int GIG 0 or int FA 0 <which ever is the physical interface i think its the GIG>

 

AP(config  - int)#ip addresss <address > <mask> (make sure you have  the connectivity to your laptop ip address, that is the interface ip  should be able to ping the laptop ip address, that is.. both in the same  subnet)

 

AP(config - int)#no shut

 

AP(config - int)#end


Now use the archive download command to upgrade the AP to Autonomous..

 

AP#archieve download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://<TFTP ip address (laptops IP)>/<Autonomous image.tar>

 

EX -

 

AP# archive download-sw /overwrite /force-reload tftp://10.0.0.4/ap801-k9w7-tar.124-21a.JY.tar

 

This will do it.. But the first step will resolve the issue 99% if that doesnt work, then proceed with manual.

If you are not be able to access the AP GUI if the AP module is running the code 12.4(21a)JA1... then i request you to follow  the document posted by me to overcome that as well. that is..
