USG1100 APC + NWA1121-NI access point. Can't add the AP

I have a wireless LAN (15 AP's) controlled by the APC onboard on the USG1100 firewall. I need to add a new AP (NWA1121). I have assigned to the AP the right local IP, configured the switch port (I have a VLAN) but when I connect the AP to the port nothing happens. Am I wrong or the controller must recognize automatically the new AP? Why it doesn't appear on the AP list?

    Hi @Matt10669


    NWA1K series cannot be managed by APC, you have to run NWA1121-NI in standalone mode.

    Don’t worry about the seamless wireless coverage, the AP supports roaming with same SSID and security.

    For APC manageable APs, you could consider WAC500 or WAX510D for newer WiFi standard and better performance.

    Thank you
