AP will not connect to internet

I installed an access point on a domain:  i gave it an available static address, pointed to the server which is DNS, and set the def gateway.  All the same settings as other workstations.  I checked cables and connections and they all work.  
The clients can connect to the AP, but cannot connect to the internet.  I flushed dns on the clients.  I also plugged in a new AP which gets its address from DHCP, and it has the exact same issue.
Am i missing something?

Is DHCP enabled on your AP?  Turn it off and/or set it to pass thru and point it to your DC.

See if you can remove NAT off the AP and/or set it to bridge.

Is your firewall blocking access to the internet for the IP your AP is using?  Are you able to run any sort of network diagnostics on the AP?

I re ran the set up and re entered the settings for the access point.  This solved several of the connection issues.  There is a new issue, but I will address that separately.
