How to: downgrade IAP firmware

We are facing trouble latest (early availability) firmware on our IAP103's can not work with Airwave. They are on customers site. We want to downgrade IAP's to a firmware version that is supported byAirwave. How can we do that?

It seems (using port forwarding) using Instant Webgui access - maintenance tab - brwose to pegasus file on pc and click on upgrade - nothing seems to change. It keeps on latest firmware after the reboot.

Any ideas?
