I have two Cisco WAP 551 Access points. replacing two ingenuous AP's.
I connect the AP's over POE and did the set up wizard locally from my laptop straight to AP.
once i connect to the network it turns on and broadcasts its SSID but does not hand out IP's to anyone who connects.
Also the LAN port does not light up.

What am I missing. it has an IP and it will even get on if I tell it to pick it up via DHCP but it doesn't go past there. I need this up ASAP please

Are you using the same cable to connect the AP to your laptop and to the switch?
Have you tried manually setting speed/duplex on the switch?

I fixed it before i saw this but I appreciate your response, it was in fact the speed on the duplex that caused the issue. i had to turn off auto negotiation .
