Using SonicPoint N Dual-Band with non Sonicwall router

I Have a couple of SonicPoint N Dual-Band (Model/Type: APL21-069) that I want to use with non Sonicwall router such as Dlink or Cisco routers. Can this be done and how?
Please help.
Thanks

No you can't set up these access points without a SonicWALL branded UTM appliance. The What You Need to Begin section of the Getting Started Guide for this product states the following:

• A SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Dual-Band appliance
SonicOS Enhanced 5.2 or higher, installed on one of the following SonicWALL UTM appliances:
TZ 210 series
NSA series
E-Class NSA series
• An 802.3af compliant PoE injector or PoE-capable switch
• An active Internet connection
• A configured interface on the SonicWALL security appliance set to a zone type of “wireless”
• A location selected for placement of your SonicPoint such as a wall or ceiling
• Clients capable of 802.11n wireless communications

The Configuring Wireless Access section of the guide also states the following:
This section describes how to configure SonicPoints with a SonicWALL UTM appliance. SonicWALL SonicPoints are wireless access points specially engineered to work with SonicWALL UTM appliances.
