i have a cisco AIR-CAP1602E with ap1g2-rcvk9w8-mx loaded. I want to connect it to a AIR-WLC2106-K9 running software 7.0.240.0. They do not appear to want to talk to each other

*Mar  1 00:05:40.164: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Failed to decode discovery response.
*Mar  1 00:05:40.164: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: CAPWAP SM handler: Failed to process message type 2 state

Any ideas ?

I have seen some info stating they may not be compatiable.

The 1602 AP is only supported with v7.4> WLC code.  The 2106 only supports code up-to v7.0.240.0 so unfortunately the two are not compatible.

So can I put a different OS on the 1602 so I can use it without the controller ?

Yes, you need an Autonomous image.

To help you identify the autonomous or lightweight images...

Autonomous filename contains: k9w7
Lightweight filename contains: k9w8

You need to obtain a service contract to allow you to download code for the AP.

A 5508 or 2504 will do fine, as long as you have at least v7.4 code on the WLC.
