Cisco 521 Wireless Access Point - Standalone configuration

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I am trying to configure a Cisco 521 Wireless Express Access Point as a simple wireless access point.  I am not having any luck getting started.  The quick start guide is useless.  I've tried downloading Cisco's CCA program, and tried discovery mode, but that does not appear to work.  I don't have a DHCP server on the network, nor do I have any other Cisco devices, so I am unsure how to connect to this thing for the first time.  The documentation I have found on Cisco's site is all about using it in conjunction with other devices and I find it very confusing.  Help!
