Cisco Aironet 2600i Access Point

Hi, I bought 2 Aironet 2600i for my WiFi network in an industrial environment.

Today, I connected the first one on my switch and started to configure it.

I don't want to use the advanced functionnalities, just wanted a good wireless connection.

I managed to assign it an static IP and entered the configuation web interface. I don't like CLI, and I want simple configuration.

But I have a problem : I figured out how to create the WiFi network, but the client device "find" the AP, register, but don't get an IP from my DHCP server.

How do I do that ?

I used to configure a WiFi network on Access Points far less advanced than this Cisco, and it's so easy : you set the SSId, the encryption you want (WPA2), the key and voilà, the client devices see the ssid, a key is required and they obtain and IP from my DHCP pool...

Have I missed something ?

If someone can help me, thank you in advance.

You have an external DHCP? o

You have an external DHCP? o the AP will be the DHCP server?....

-For internal AP DHCP Server here is an example.

AP# configure terminal
 AP(config)# ip dhcp excluded-address
 AP(config)# ip dhcp pool wishbone
 AP(dhcp-config)# network
 AP(dhcp-config)# lease 10
 AP(dhcp-config)# end

-- AND if you have an external DHCP server just remember use the ip-helper addr with the ip of the server and a DefaultGw,


interface BVI1
ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
ip helper-address y.y.y.y

ip default-gateway z.z.z.z
