Cisco Aironet 1602i Standalone - Only works with controller?

Hello everyone,

I have a Cisco Aironet 1602i Standalone - wireless access point ( AIR-SAP1602I-A-K9 ). Not to be mistaken with the controller based AP (

AIR-CAP1602I-A-K9)

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?

What am I missing here?

Thanks,

Dan

You need to look at various guides to understand the configuration.  It's not as simple as some home routers and can be confusing.  Here are some guides:

Yes,

you need a controller to connect the AP to the  network  even if you 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.
