Cisco access point rescue installation

You can freshly install a software image for the cisco access points from boot CLI (like rmon on routers). If there is no image on the flash device, the device will automatically boot to the CLI otherwise you can press Esc while booting up.

First you need to configure an IP address:

set IP_ADDR 192.168.1.88
set NETMASK 255.255.255.0
set DEFAULT_ROUTER 192.168.1.1

you can also directly configure the ip address for the OS system:

set IOS_STATIC_IP_ADDR 10.192.224.58
set IOS_STATIC_NETMASK 255.255.255.0
set IOS_STATIC_DEFAULT_GATEWAY 10.192.224.1

prepare the access point for TFTP transfer

tftp_init
ether_init
flash_init

copy the flash image and set the boot file

tar -xtract tftp://192.168.1.1/ap3g2-k9w8-tar.152-4.JB6.tar flash:
set BOOT flash:/ap3g2-k9w8-mx.152-4.JB6/ap3g2-k9w8-xx.152-4.JB6

boot
