How to configure and add AIR-CAP26021-E-K9(Cisco wireless access point) to associate with Cisco 4400 Wireless LAN controller


We have Cisco 4400 Wireless LAN controller in our network. We are using  10 Cisco Aironet  AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9  connected at different locations in  our organisation and my predecessor had configured and set up this.

I wanted to add more wireless access point , so I asked my supplier to supply me with 3 numbers of same model access point (AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9 ), but they have sent me  AIR-CAP26021-E-K9.I thought if I connect this access point to the controller it will  take the IP from the DHCP and configure itself.

When I connected to the network ,  it boots and the orange light keeps flashing continuously.. Normally with (AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9)  when I disconnect and connect it back it boots and after few minutes the led goes blue( confirms the Wireless Access point has successfully associated  with the controller).

I have not set up this type of WAP in the past, please post me some tutorials as how to associate the new wireless access points (AIR-CAP26021-E-K9) with the controller.

Any help much appreciated

The 2602 isn't supported by the 4400 WLC.

You can put autonomous code on them and install in standalone mode.
