Cisco 2106 WLAN controller and AIR-LAP1242AG configuration

Just bought a Cisco 2106 WLAN controller w/ two AIR-LAP1242AG access points.  I have gone through the basic CLI configuration on the controller.  I am now able to connect to the controller via the Management Interface IP Address.  That brings me to the web GUI for the controller.  However, I cannot connect to the AP Manager Interface IP  Address web GUI, or the access point's DHCP-assigned IP web GUI.

I can ping the Management Interface, but no web server responds.  I cannot even ping the Access Point, even though I have verified the IP address via CLI.

Any thoughts?

you last sentence says "I can ping...." then it says "i cannot even ping...". What do you mean by management interface (the hard ethernet wire)? Did you read the manual? Is there a console port where you can use the CLI to enable the web access?

"Did you read the manual?" Uh, ya. For three days.  

Anyway, finally figured it out with brute force.  The real problem was that these devices do not ship with documentation.  I had to look them up online and what I found was very vague, applying to a software (OS) version rather than a specific hardware model.  The instructions I was following didn't apply to my specific configuration.  Thanks anyway.
