Cisco Aironet 1602i Standalone - Only works with controller?
I have a Cisco Aironet 1602i Standalone - wireless access point ( AIR-SAP1602I-A-K9 ). Not to be mistaken with the controller based AP (
I bought this one in particular so that I wouldn't need a "Controller."
So my question is: Do I need a controller to connect the AP to the network? All I want to do is connect the AP via it's Eithernet port into a switch. This switch will have the network/Internet running through it.
As far as I have gone is being able to access the Web GUI to give the SSID a name. But the SSID is not showing up on my wireless devices!! I have a feeling this controller in question has something to do with it.
BUT WHY DOES IT NEED A CONTROLLER WHEN I ASKED FOR STAND ALONE?
