Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my thread.
I've tried to answer your questions as shown below:
> What are you using to power the unit a PoE switch or a Power injector?
I am using a PoE switch. Specifically, a Cisco SG300-52P.
> When you access to the wizard, do you setup a static ip address or left the dynamic option?
At first I set it up statically, and when that failed, I tried to dynamically.
> If you left the dynamic option enable, after you completed the wizard have you tried to do any > Pings to the ip address on the access point? > Also if it is dynamic, after you made the changes does the ip address show in the dhcp server > leased addresses? do you see the mac address of the access point associated to the ip?
When I did it statically, the Cisco FindIt tool could see the device, but I could not ping it from my own PC even though I was in the same subnet. The error was "(My IP) could not reach host."
When I tried dynamically, the AP did not show up in the Cisco FindIt tool, so in the end I could not find the device's new address. The SSID appeared, and I could connect to it, but the AP would not connect to the internet.
What I am trying to do is replace a WAP371 with a new WAP571. I'm using the same LAN cable that was for the 371 for the 571. I downloaded the config file from the 371, and I was hoping I could upload it to the 571 for an easy replacement, but the 571 does not have a "Cancel" option when the wizard starts. I have no choice but to use the wizard. Is this a bug or something?
