    Hi,

    I just purchased a second hand 350 with the hope of using it on Dolby Lake Processors and Lake Contour speaker controllers. (They use UDP broadcast which often has problems with consumer Linksys AP's and the like.)

    I'm at my wits end trying to reset the AP. None of the information on the cisco website seems to work the way they suggest. I can get access via telnet and serial cable but the AP refuses to do anything except ask for a username and password.

    Here is a dump of what I see at boot up... Any help would be most appreciated. If you like nearby... I'll drop around some beer.

    Solved.

    Looking at the steps under:

    Resetting for Boot-Block Versions 1.02 or Later

    on the page

    http://www-tss.cisco.com/eservice/compass/common/activities/password_aironet.htm

    the problem was that when rebooting the AP, HyperTerminal was loosing the ability to send keystroles to the AP. I found that I had to close and reopen the HyperTerminal immediately after I triggered the reboot. When HyperTerminal reconnected to the AP, I could watch the loading and successfully press ctrl-w when the Memory:File information appeared. This took over 2 hours to figure out!!!

    Hope this helps someone else!!
