How do i access Cisco Autonomous SAP-702i access points to setup

Hi All

I have 5 Cisco Aironet SAP-702i Wireless Access Points plugged into a low end Netgear ProSafe 8x10/100/1000 - GS110TP POE switch. I have never used Cisco before and thought that they would come with a default IP and i could just use a browser to configure as these are standalone units. When i un-boxed them there was no documentation and so i do not know how to access these AP's to configure.

IS there a default IP for the Cisco Aironet SAP-702i or are they DHCP enabled?
There are 2x RJ45 ports on the units Console/Ethernet, what is the difference?
Do they need a certain type of POE switch to function rather than the low end Netgear in place?

Thanks in advance

That's the wrong config guide.  The correct one is here...

The APs will DHCP so you will be able to check the DHCP server to find their address.  If you're not too hot with Cisco IOS APs you can use the CNA tool...

Hi thanks for your response (Predrag) but i got so far and realised your link appeared to only be relevant to the control models (CAP's)

Thanks for the point about the router (Craig). I am onsite tomorrow to finally try and resolve this issues so i shall read up this new link.

is there any issue with the POE switch or is that ok?

The APs just need standard PoE so the switch is fine.
