Thank you for the help! I had heard in passing that the software on the WLC might be too old, but now it's confirmed. We can either try upgrading the software (anyone ever done that before?) or see if we can scoop up some leftover 1252s somewhere.

Hello: We currently have about 50 Cisco 1252 wireless access points running from a 4404 Wireless LAN controller. We need to order more APs, but of course the 1252s have been discontinued. Was assured by Cisco that the 1262 would work just fine with our WLC. I'm messing around with a trial 1262 and am running into problems. We hard-code the IP address, hostname, default gateway, and controller IP address in each of our access points. I did that with the new 1262 the same way I did with the 1252s: lwapp ap ip address lwapp ap ip default-gateway etc., etc. That didn't work. Then I tried doing the same thing using (not sure if this is the correct terminology...) the capwap commands. The AP still doesn't show up on the WLC's GUI, though I can ping the AP from the WLC and I can ping the WLC from the AP. I also can't use a web browser to get into the access point's configuration tool. Do I understand correctly that the lightweight APs don't have the GUI? I'm sure it's just one little step that I'm stupidly missing but I can't figure out what it might be. Cisco docs aren't helping much. FWIW, we have software version 22.214.171.124 on our WLC. Any help you could provice would be appreciated!
