Hi,

I am afraid that you have a nice piece of useless hardware if you do not connect it to a wireless switch.
Without switch, the 3500AP is just a radio without intelligence. You need a DWS (3024 or 3026)

Not sure I understand, but simply configure the Wireless settings, and plug into a switch, should be all you need to do....
