I try to configure a Cisco Aironet 1042N Series Access Point for Office Use. Web-browser interface is disabled by default. I must enable it for configuring but when I try to configure it from CLI I get this error.

APc471.fe8f.f47d#configure terminal
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Also I don't have any WLC device in my network I just want to use it for Office Network Extend but it gives this error frequently.

It looks like the AP is currently configured as "Lightwieght"

This means it must work with a Wireless controller to function correctly, see the below link for the procedure to convert it back to autonomous:

thank you for the answer. When I talked to cisco support they told me this. And they will send me autonomous rom files. – barisinanc Feb 22 '12 at 22:53
