Option 1:
Deploying Your Access Point with Dynamic IP Addressing
If your network automatically assigns IP addresses ( DHCP service ), connect
the Access Point directly to the network by plugging an Ethernet cable into
the LAN port on its rear panel. Insert the cable’s other end into your existing
switch or router with Internet connectivity.
No additional configuration is required. Within a few minutes the Access
Point will self configure and become ready to use. You have the option
of later reconfiguring your Access Point to a static IP address using the
CloudCommand™ interface .
The DAP-2565 is PoE ( Power over Ethernet ) compliant. You can power it either
by using a PoE switch or the included power adapter. Once powered, the
green power LED will turn ON to indicate proper operation.
