How to setup Cisco AP?

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.

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.

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.
