Cisco AIR SAP1602I A K9

Last Modified: 2015-11-01
I purchased 2 Cisco 1602 standalone WAPs to replace the existing equipment in our office.

I am using the power over Ethernet injectors for both devices.  It appears DHCP is turned on both devices, but it never gets an address.  I have checked the DHCP server log vs MAC addresses but nothing.

I have also utilized the instructions for configuring on a laptop to try and access the IP that they are supposed to get when DHCP doesn't work.  But that still doesn't work.

I don't know if the POE injectors are causing an issue. I can't find/remember the command to hard code a new static on the correct interface to get it on the right subnet and see what happens from there.

It has been several years since I've had to do CLI in IOS.

But I can successfully connect via the console port.

I am using the CISCO IOS Software Configuration Guide for CISCO Aironet Access Points, but the majority of the configuration is set using the web interface, which I can't get to since the AP's don't get an IP.

I have tried both devices and its identical.

Any thoughts?
