Can't see AP on network map

I've just installed a new NETGEAR WAC104-100UKS AP but I can't find it in my network map when I run a scan. Is that normal? Does it have an IP address? Thanks

It is an access point, so it should be using the main gateway address and then hand out addresses to clients

So does that mean that I can't open up the config via wifi, solely if I connect to it via a cable? Thanks.
You can connect a computer to the Ethernet port and do an initial config that way. This is how we set up pure Access Points.  I do not configure using Wi-Fi.

We have switched to Wi-Fi routers for more flexibility

So in effect it's impossible to run the config via wifi? Thanks.

Thanks. I think you can't enter the config via wifi.
Thanks. You can always connect via Ethernet.

In the end I installed a firmware update and this added the option to switch it over to DHCP lookup from the default fixed IP address. Now it appears on the Wi-Fi network and I can open the browser interface through Wi-Fi. Thank you again.
Thank you for the update. Sometimes firmware is a good idea (I have done this myself).
