Joining AIR-CAP-2602-E2-K9 to WLC 2504



I just received a 2504 WLC and a few AIR-CAP2602-E2-K9 APs. I resetted the WLC and have that up now, reachable using the first network port.

In port 3, the first PoE, I have one of the access points. I can't see it in the WLC admin gui, Im guessing I must config the network port of the wlc and on the AP manually choose to join the WLC or such. The AP also has some old password so that need to be resetted.


Can anyone direct me to documentation for resetting an AP & joining an AP in a WLC?


Thanks in advance

Hi ,

Best is to have AP connedcted tos wicth port not directly to WLC.

1. Connect AP to switch port.

2. Create a DHCP pool for AP to get IP on switch(Try to keep in same subnet as WLC)

I have one AP joined now - thanks. It gets an address from the dhcp server in the management network. I setup one WLAN using wpa2 PSK method. When a client connects, it doesn't get any ip. Im guessing the SSID/WLAN in question must be tied to either some tagged vlan, or simply to the untagged mgmt vlan that the APs sit on. Please advise!


The ap:

ap#show ip interface 

BVI1 is up, line protocol is up

  Internet address is

 Broadcast address is



My workstation can reach it:

$ ping

PING ( 56 data bytes

64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=2.941 ms

I setup one WLAN using wpa2 PSK method. When a client connects, it doesn't get any ip.

This WLAN is mapped to whcih interface ??(Management or on any other dynamic interface ?)

Try to create a another dynamic interface in sepearte vlan then map this dynamic interafce to wyour WLAN.

Make sure you allow this wlan to wlc connected port on switch.
