I need help from someone who already tried to convert a lightweight Cisco Aironet 1700 AP to an autonomous AP. I tried to do that, but I couldn't access it, even with the console port

I have tried to telnet to it, but Cisco requires a password to be reset before we can telnet to the device. I tried the console cable, but it kept giving me a blank page.


Did you download the autonomous IOS to the AP via TFTP? This will have to be done first to get the correct software onto the AP. Look for the "w8" think "light'w8'" in the file name.

Use the mode button to reset it to factory defaults
