HI Zohaib,

Add the MAC address of the MAP to the MAC filter table. In order to do this, choose security > AAA > Mac Filtering > Mac Address

Here is the full CLI command syntax:

(WLC) >config macfilter add [interface name] [description] [Client IP address]

Once you do this your AP should  register to WLC in mesh mode. Then  you can convert it to local mode via  WLC GUI or CLI.

Here is the CLI way of doing it

(WLC) >config ap mode local submode none

Reagrds.

HI Zohaib,

Did you connected these APs to edge or core swicth or somewhere in your network??

A lightweight AP joins a controller via DHCP, DNS or broadcast. You don't add them or anything on the controller, you setup your systems to provide the IP address of the controllers and then the AP joins it. Best and easiest way is to use DHCP.

Check your DHCP scopes to see if there's a option 42 with the controller address.
