Wireless AP 1142 - Convert to controller based or standalone mode

If you are faced with the task of installing 1100 series APs into a controller environment but somehow "standalone" APs were procured, don't panic! Here is the fix:

1. Note the AP's IP address by "show cdp neigh detail"
2. http:// to the address to manage (Cisco/Cisco... case sensitive ID and pass!)
3. Go to the software tab and update to the correct image

If your controller is a hop or two or more away, don't forget to adjust DHCP option 43 and option 60 values!
