I'm trying to setup snmp on a cisco wireless access point. It's an aironet 1140 series, I think. when I do a show version it returns this in the lines:
cisco AIR-LAP1141N-A-K9
I'm not able to enter configure terminal. It gives an error like it doesn't recongnize the command. When I tried to google how to configure snmp the documentation I found shows entering configure terminal. When I hit the question mark it doesn't say anything about snmp and I've tried entering enable. When I try to login through the access points web page I get an error that says this ap is not in flexconnect mode. I don't see any snmp settings in the controllers web interface for the APs. How do I configure SNMP on this cisco wireless access point?

Cisco's idea about management of access points in your case is that the Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) is the management platform. Your access point (AIR-LAP1141N-A-K9) is using the OS for the controller based approach, so you can only configure the controller for SNMP but not a single access point.

If you want to be able to SNMP monitor a single access point you have to switch the OS of the AP to standalone mode. But that disables the possibility to deploy and manage it by WLC.

As mat1458 said, you can't manage this AP at the moment.  It is in Lightweight mode and therefore it needs a controller.

If you want to use this AP without a controller, you need to put an Autonomous version of code on it.
