I have a problem with an Aironet 1142 LAP, basically I am trying to convert it back to autonomous mode but I cannot get it to reconfigure its IP.
I'm using the method whereby you hold the mode button down on boot until the LED goes red, then use a series of SET commands to change the IP before trying to pull IOS image down from my TFTP server.
The set commands are
set IP_ADDR 172.16.1.10
set NETMASK 255.255.255.0
set DEFAULT_ROUTER 172.16.1.1
The address above does not respond to pings at all, it doesnt matter if I:
use cross over cable direct to laptop
use straight through cable direct to laptop
plug into a factory default switch (L2 2950) with laptop in a seperate port on same switch
it does not respond to pings, what am I doing wrong? is it a gateway issue? I've tried to set the gateway as the LAP itself.
I can't let it boot up to the IOS image because I removed the image ready to flash the new one (in hindsight I should have just overwritten it!), I had this same problem with a 1141 also and the only way I got around that was to let it boot to the LAP IOS image and then use archive-download with overwrite which converted it to autonomous mode perfectly, so it must be something I am doing wrong with the set commands etc.
