IP settings on Aironet AP without VLANs

Hi, I am looking to configure my Cisco Aironet AP without any VLANs and just one SSID.

The AP will connect directly in to the back of a router on an interface with an IP of

If I set BVI1 on the AP to have an IP of, will this be enough to allow communication between the router and the AP since they are on the same subnet?

Clients that connect to the AP will be getting DHCP from the router, and the AP will have a default gateway of I was planning on making an excluded address for the DHCP pool.

The router is running eigrp and I was going to use the commands:

router eigrp 1


Please let me know if this example setup makes sense or if there are any issues with it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I want to know the exact same thing, except I have a PIX 515 instead of a router, and I'm having truoble getting my AP to hand out DHCP leases.
