Cisco Aironet 600

Hi all,

I wan to use cisco 600 AP without wireless controller, just as a simple router or relay to get dhcp from dhcp server. I need help for how to configure it?

As per your query i can suggest you the following solution  -

Office Extend AP-600 Configuration Steps

The Cisco Aironet 600 Series OEAP will connect to the WLC as a Local Mode Access Point.

Note: Monitor, H-REAP, Sniffer, Rogue Detection, Bridge and SE-Connect modes are not supported on the 600 Series and are not configurable.

Note: Cisco Aironet 600 Series OEAP functionality in the 1040, 1130, 1140 and 3502i Series Access Points requires configuring the APs for Hybrid REAP (H-REAP) and setting the sub-mode for the AP to Cisco Aironet 600 Series OEAP. This is not done with the 600 Series beacuse it uses local mode and cannot be altered.

MAC filtering can be used in the AP authentication during the initial join process to prevent unauthorized Cisco Aironet 600 Series OEAP units from joining the controller. This image shows where you enable MAC filtering and configure AP security policies:

The Ethernet MAC (not the Radio MAC address) is entered here. Also, if entering the MAC address into a Radius server, lower case must be used. You can examine the AP Event log for information on how to discover the Ethernet MAC address (more on this later).

For more information please refer to the link-

Hope this will help you.

I do not think you can do this.

But anyway you can give it a try. Once you connect OEAP600 WAN port to a network where DHCP configured it should get an ip.

Try to access that IP via http (admin/admin) & see whether it allow you to do any configuration DHCP & SSID section configuration. Then connect a device to local port (1-3) & see whehter those devices can get an IP from the pool you defined.

I don't think you can use an OEAP600 as autonomous.  This model was designed specifically to have a controller.
