    Step 9: Once you have the wireless portion enabled and configured, you can connect your Access Point to the switch and turn on the power.

    If this is new AP it may take a few minutes to show up

    Run the following command, in the CLI, and press Enter. The results will show all the discovered Access Points.

    DES-32xx # show wlan aps

    In GUI mode it will show as Not Active.
