configure 881w wireless ap - first timer

I am running an 881W on 12.4(20)T3

I can't figure out how to configure the internal access point.  All the guides that I see out there say to log in via service-module wlan-ap but this is what I get:

tciao#service-module wlan-ap 0 session

IP address needs to be configured on interface wlan-ap0
tciao#

I cannot set an IP on wlan-ap0

tciao(config)#interface wlan-ap 0
The wlan-ap 0 interface is used for managing the embedded AP.
Please use the "service-module wlan-ap 0 session" command to console into the embedded AP

any help would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. I also tried to config it with CCP and I can get logged in but any attempt to setup a wireless network seems to have no affect and I cant get to the APs web interface.

tciao#service-module wlan-ap 0 status

Service Module is Cisco wlan-ap0

Service Module supports session via TTY line 2

Service Module is in Steady state

Service Module reset on error is disabled

Service Module heartbeat-reset is enabled

Getting status from the Service Module, please wait..

The message you get back above is normal when you go to configure an IP. When the router returns to the prompt what does the prompt look like ie.

tciao(config)#

or

tciao(config-if)#

it should be the second one ie. tciao(config-if)#

If so then you simply then configure an ip address eg.

tciao(config-if)# ip address 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0

Use this config guide to get started -

881 wireless config

Re: configure 881w wireless ap - first timer

I ended up setting the BVI1 interface address in CCP.  I then telnetted from my PC to that address.  I had to login with cisco/cisco even though I had already setup a different username.  I then had to enable the secure http server before I could connect to the web interface.  I still have not set the IP address of wlan-ap 0 and cannot use service-module wlan-ap 0 session to connect.

I am worried that by setting that I will break something.

Okay, not sure what else to say. The config guide clearly shows the message you are getting.
