Cisco Aironet 1142

How do you get a brand new Cisco AP to connect to the controller and download its config?  I plugged the AP into the network, but I'm not seeing the AP show up in the controller as a Rogue.  The AP is flashing greeen, read, and amber.  Any ideals?

If you put the AP on the same subnet as the controller, as long as it gets an IP address via DHCP (or statically assigned) it will find the controller using a broadcast.

Can you confirm the model of AP, and the software on the AP and the controller?
