Adding Cisco Wireless Access Point to SonicWall NSA240

I am trying to add a Cisco WAP4410N Wireless Access Point to a SonicWall NSA240 and am having difficulties.

Note that the Sonicwall is not acting as a DHCP server, we have a Windows server doing this task. I have tried plugging the Cisco WAP into one of the Sonicwall LAN ports as well as leaving it in a switch connected to the Sonicwall with no luck - the WAP does not assign IP addresses.

I am not sure if it is possible to create a separate subnet on the Sonicwall for the LAN port which I've plugged the Cisco WAP into, and can this port have it's own DHCP server running off the Sonicwall? Or can I use IP Helper to point the Cisco WAP to the Windows server?

Any thoughts? Your help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Have you connected to the WAP to configure it?
"By default, the WAP4410N Access Point has an IP address of 192.168.1.245 and a default mask of 255.255.255.0."

The access point cannot act as a DHCP server, but can support VLANs.

I have figured out the solution by creating a WLAN zone on the sonicwall and creating a DHCP range for the zone. Thanks for your help
