Adding WS-AP3805I to C25 Controller


Hi I'm adding 6 new AP WS-ap3805I to a C25 controller.
- how I set an ip to the AP
- If I try to add an AP in the controlle first I don't have the selected model in the dropdown list, and then it told me that the serial is incorrect.
Can somebody help me?
thank you

What software version is running on the controller.

You need to provide a IP via DHCP to the AP, you could only configure the AP if the AP is connected to the controller.
If the AP has an IP in the same subnet as the controller he should be able to discover the controller.

As per Gareth's post above ....
  • The minimum firmware version needed to support the WS-AP3805i is 9.15.01.0121
So you need to upgrade the controller and also enable a DHCP server so that the AP could get a IP.
I'm searching bu here's simple .. where I download the firmware?
The configuration will not be touched with the upgrade (so I will not lost anything)?
