We have an environment with Cisco 1310 bridges in a point to multi-point configuration.  I have been give a 1530 Mesh access point to use as a 1310 replacement in our existing configuration.  Is this possible?  I keep getting "Mesh Capwap re-started" and it cycles through this.  There is no "config t" options.  Do I need a wireless controller for this?

yes, sounds like you have a lightweight (controller based) AP.  The datasheet does say its capable of autonomous (standalone) operation - you might have to reflash it though with the autonomous image.

unfragmented is spot-on.  The 1532 can run Autonomous code which will let it connect to a 1300 bridge.

You should be able to put the 1300's configuration straight onto the 1532 after changing FastEthernet0 to GigabitEthernet0.
