Hello experts,

I recently got my cisco 861 router working as i wanted.
Now i'm trying to hook-up a Cisco accespoint 1041 to it. (AIR-LAP1041N-E-K9)

Now i'm not sure if these 2 can work together.
the router is connected directly to the ISP modem, and works fine.
After some reading the pdf's and other sheets about the 1040 AP series i can't get my head around how to get it configured.
the LED keeps Cycling through green, red, and amber meaning Discovery/join process in progress

Is it even possible to use these 2 together ?
If so, can i connect it with ccp so i can get it configured ?

Okay i'm done with it.

They do work together, and ccp is not compatible with the accespoint.
I needed to use the web interface.

But before i could use the web interface i had to change it from lightweight mode to autonomous mode
following these instructions:

I had to change the mode because i have no wireless controller setup in the network.
