Setting up a vlan on a hp switch

Last Modified: 2015-10-08

I have a AP to configure, the AP is POE so i am unable to connect to it with an Ethernet cable directly to my laptop. What I have to do is create a VLAN on the POE Switch untag 2 ports one for my laptop and one for the AP.

When connecting to the HP switch web interface I can setup a VLAN but I am a little unsure on how to configure the IP for the VLAN. It obviously has to be on the same network as the default IP of the AP but when I go to IP configuration shall i set it to DHCP or manual? I think its DHCP but need advise.
