CLI Setup Wizard
To use the Setup Wizard from CLI, you must connect to the console port of the Access Point. The default parameters for the console ports are 9600 baud, eight data bits, one stop bit, and no parity. The console ports do not support hardware flow control.
After connecting to the console port on the Access Point, power up the Access Point. After a few minutes, Access Point will start the Controller.
