Upgrading Cisco Wireless Firmware

Published on Monday, November 3, 2008

I'm always forgetting the exact string to enter at the CLI for updating the IOS on a wireless Cisco AP, so I'll just put it here to end my future searches:

Chimp# archive download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp:// obviously being your tftp server, and the .tar file sitting in the root of the tftp server.

I suppose if you wanted to backup your IOS you could do something along the lines of:

Chimp# archive upload-sw tftp://

But I haven't tried it...
