This is using the new Cisco Aironet 2700 series (2702) 802.11ac dual-band access point. It is using POE power supply. However, after power up the AP, I can't access via the console cable. And on the console, it shows "Password required but not set". How to set it up in Lightweight mode?

Thanks in advance.

Lightweight APs require a controller.  You don't configure them at the AP's console.

Then, that should be in autonomous mode, as it has to be work alone.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You need to download the Autonomous version of code from Cisco, then perform the recovery procedure, which can be found here...

The image should be renamed to ap3g2-k9w7-tar.default before you begin.
