Cisco 1850 Series CLI

Trying to convert a cisco 1852i to mobility express.  I'm connected via the console and logged in, but I can't stop the constant scrolling and, after 15 attempts to find a controller, rebooting.  I feel stupid, but I'm frustrated as hell trying to the commands entered between debug information and reboots.  Ctrl c doesn't work and neither does undebug all.  

OK, I got past my original problem.  Downloaded the .tar file which loads much quicker, before the access point reboots.  However, having a new problem.

The mobility express primary controller is now up and I'm able to login to the management interface, and the wlan is working properly on it.  However, when I try to join the additional 2 ap's, they find the controller and get as far as Starting image download....  But then I start getting Discarding msg type 9 in CAPWAP state:10.  Invalid event 50 & state 10 combination.  And SM handler: Failed to process timer message.  Even 50, state 10.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the replies.

The answer was actually the .tar file itself.

When using one of the ap's as the controller, it doesn't actually hold the image file like a hardware controller does.  It just points to a tftp server.  Using a little syslogging on the tftp server, I found that the file the ap was looking for was not in the .tar file that Cisco published for me.  It's only in the .zip.  They published that and everything worked first try.

Try to  make sure there are to Access Point policies already configured that would interfere with
the APs you are trying to add.

" clear capwap private-config" on your AP.

If that doesn't work your AP may be in the wrong Regulatory Domain.
