Need help configuring Motorola Wireless Access Point AP 6532

A customer was very specific in requesting expensive Motorola wireless access points - the AP 6532 model, to be exact. It seems that despite the instructions that indicate an HTML interface, there is only SSH access and I've not been successful locating any documentation on the command line interface commands. I've also come across some posts indicating a separate "controller" might be necessary to use these things.

Thanks in advance for lending your help and experience!

These AP's are be configurable with or without a controller.  See page 21 http://www.slideshare.net/advantec_italia/motorola-solutions-ap6532-access-point-installation-guide-part-no-72-e-14936801-rev-b-13903856# 

Has the initial setup wizard been run before?  I suggest resetting the AP to factory default   http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/197831-how-do-you-reset-a-motorola-ap-6521-to-factory-defaults 
 
What version of browser are you using?    What version of firmware (WiNG) on the AP?

Attached are screenshots of one of my ap6532 GUI interfaces and we can control it either through the controller or AP.

Thanks, getzjd.

I had not previously been able to find instructions for resetting the AP to factory default. So thanks for those. I will try Reset and FactoryDefault for user name and password. Hopefully that enables the html GUI.
