I have a 1200 series LWAPP. It has the default configuration which means it has configured the static IP address

How can I change the address or how can the AP discover the controller address?

Hi Ana,

WLC Discovery process. Have a look in this good doc;

Lightweight AP (LAP) Registration to a Wireless LAN Controller (WLC)

For the Static entry question;

If this AP was ever registered you can use this command from the LAP CLI to clear the LWAPP configuration on the LAP:

clear lwapp private-config

This allows you to use the AP LWAPP static configuration commands again.

Here is an example:

Enable (enter password)

AP1240#clear lwapp private-config

AP1240#lwapp ap hostname AP1240

AP1240#lwapp ap ip address

AP1240#lwapp ap ip default-gateway

AP1240#lwapp ap controller ip address

Note: You cannot use the clear lwapp private-config command when the LAP is registered with the controller.

Hope this helps!
