Hello, I have a UC500 with a few computers and phones connected. I also have a Cisco 871w which I would like to connect and use it as a wireless access point to add wireless connectivity to the network. I have been using Cisco Confiuration Professional and cannot really see a way to do this?

First I tried to get "switch only" activity, before playing with the wireless. I gave FA4 a fixed IP address, removed the VLAN ip address and set a DHCP helper address (the address of the UC500), but when plugging a device into the inside FA ports, I get no IP address. I do not want to set up the DHCP server on the 871, I instead want it to pass through DHCP from the UC500.

Many thanks.
