Installation Guide
The Dell PowerConnect W-IAP104 and W-IAP105 wireless access points support
the IEEE 802.11n standard for high-performance WLAN. This access point uses
MIMO (Multiple-in, Multiple-out) technology and other high-throughput mode
techniques to deliver high-performance, 802.11n 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz functionality
while simultaneously supporting existing 802.11a/b/g wireless services.
The Dell PowerConnect W-IAP100 Series access points provide the following
capabilities:
 Wireless transceiver
 Protocol-independent networking functionality
 IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n operation as a wireless access point
 IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n operation as a wireless air monitor
 Compatibility with IEEE 802.3af PoE
 Central management configuration and upgrades through a Dell PowerConnect
W-Instant Virtual Controller

W-IAP100 Series Hardware Overview
Figure 1 W-IAP100 Series Front (W-IAP104 shown)
LEDs
The W-IAP100 Series is equipped with four LEDs that indicate the status of the
various components of the IAP.
 PWR: Indicates whether or not the W-IAP100 Series is powered-on
 ENET: Indicates the status of the W-IAP100 Series’ Ethernet port
 11A/N: Indicates the status of the 802.11a/n radio
 11B/G/N: Indicates the status of the 802.11b/g/n radio
For information about the W-IAP100 Series’ LED behavior, see Table 1 on page 2.
External Antenna Connectors
The W-IAP104 is designed for use with external antennas and equipped with four
external antenna connectors. The W-IAP105 is equipped with internal antennas.

Console Port
Use the console port to connect to a terminal for direct local management.
Ethernet Port
W-IAP100 Series is equipped with a single 10/100/1000Base-T (RJ-45) auto-sensing,
MDI/MDX wired-network connectivity port. Supporting IEEE 802.3af Power over
Ethernet (PoE). This port accepts 48VDC as a standard defined Powered Device
(PD) from Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) such as a PoE midspan injector, or
network infrastructure that supports PoE.
DC Power Socket
If PoE is not available, an optional Dell power adapter kit (sold separately) can be
used to power the W-IAP100 Series.
Reset Button
The reset button can be used to return the IAP to factory default settings. To reset
the IAP:
1. Power off the IAP.
2. Press and hold the reset button using a small, narrow object, such as a paperclip.
3. Power-on the IAP without releasing the reset button. The power LED will flash
within 5 seconds.
4. Release the reset button.
The power LED will flash again within 15 seconds indicating that the reset is
completed. The IAP will now continue to boot with the factory default settings.
Before You Begin
IAP Pre-Installation Checklist
Before installing your W-IAP100 Series IAP, ensure that you have the following:
 CAT5 UTP cable of required length
 One of the following power sources:
 IEEE 802.3af-compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) source
 The POE source can be any Power Source Equipment (PSE) controller or
midspan PSE device
 Dell power adapter kit (sold separately)
Summary of the Setup Process
Setup an W-IAP100 Series access point by following the five tasks listed below:
1. Verify pre-installation connectivity.
2. Identify the specific installation location for each IAP.
3. Install each IAP.
4. Verify post-installation connectivity.
5. Configure each IAP.
Identifying Specific Installation Locations
You can mount the W-IAP100 Series access point on a wall or on the ceiling. Use the
IAP placement map generated by Dell’s RF Plan software application to determine
the proper installation location(s). Each location should be as close as possible to the
center of the intended coverage area and should be free from obstructions or obvious
sources of interference. These RF absorbers/reflectors/interference sources will
impact RF propagation and should have been accounted for during the planning
phase and adjusted for in RF plan.
Identifying Known RF Absorbers/Reflectors/Interference Sources
Identifying known RF absorbers, reflectors, and interference sources while in the
field during the installation phase is critical. Make sure that these sources are taken
into consideration when you attach an IAP to its fixed location. Examples of sources
that degrade RF performance include:
 Cement and brick
 Objects that contain water
 Metal
 Microwave ovens
 Wireless phones and headsets
Installing the IAP
Using the Integrated Wall-Mounting Slots
The keyhole-shaped slots on the back of the IAP can be used to attach the device
upright to an indoor wall or shelf. When you choose the mounting location, allow
additional space at the right of the unit for cables.
1. Since the ports are on the back of the device, make sure that you mount the IAP
in such a way that there is a clear path to the Ethernet port, such as a pre-drilled
hole in the mounting surface.
2. At the mounting location, install two screws on the wall or shelf, 1 7/8 inches
(4.7 cm) apart. If you are attaching the device to drywall, it is recommended that
using appropriate wall anchors (not included).
3. Align the mounting slots on the rear of the IAP over the screws and slide the unit
into place (see Figure 3).
Figure 3 Installing the W-IAP100 Series Access Point on a Wall
Using the Integrated Ceiling Tile Rail Slots
The snap-in tile rail slots on the rear of the IAP can be used to securely attach the
device directly to a 15/16" wide, standard ceiling tile rail.
1. Pull the necessary cables through a prepared hole in the ceiling tile where the IAP
will be placed.
2. If necessary, connect the console cable to the console port on the back of the IAP.
Hold the IAP next to the ceiling tile rail with the mounting slots at approximately a
30-degree angle to the ceiling tile rail (see Figure 4). Make sure that any cable slack is
above the ceiling tile.
Figure 4 Orienting the Ceiling Tile Rail Mounting Slots
3. Pushing toward the ceiling tile, rotate the IAP clockwise until the device clicks
into place on the ceiling tile rail.
Connecting Required Cables
Install cables in accordance with all applicable local and national regulations and
practices.
Ethernet Ports
The RJ45 Ethernet port (ENET) supports 10/100/1000Base-T auto-sensing MDI/
MDX connections. Use a 4- or 8-conductor, Category 5 UTP cable up to 100 m (325
feet) long.
The 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet port is on the back of the IAP. The port has an RJ-
45 female connector with the pin-outs shown in Figure 5.
Note: Inform your supplier if there are incorrect, missing, or damaged parts. If
possible, retain the carton, including the original packing materials. Use these
materials to repack and return the unit to the supplier if needed.

Caution: FCC Statement: Improper termination of access points installed in the
United States configured to non-US model controllers will be in violation of the
FCC grant of equipment authorization. Any such willful or intentional violation may
result in a requirement by the FCC for immediate termination of operation and may
be subject to forfeiture (47 CFR 1.80).

Note: Dell, in compliance with governmental requirements, has designed the W-
IAP100 Series access points so that only authorized network administrators can
change the settings. For more information about IAP configuration, refer to the Dell
PowerConnect W-Instant Quick Start Guide and the Dell PowerConnect W-Instant
User Guide.
Caution: Access points are radio transmission devices and as such are subject to
governmental regulation. Network administrators responsible for the
configuration and operation of access points must comply with local broadcast
regulations. Specifically, access points must use channel assignments
appropriate to the location in which the access point will be used.
Caution: RF Radiation Exposure Statement: This equipment complies with FCC RF
radiation exposure limits. This equipment should be installed and operated with a
minimum distance of 13.78 inches (35 cm) between the radiator and your body for
2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operations. This transmitter must not be co-located or
operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. When operated in
the 5.15 to 5.25 GHz frequency range, this device is restricted to indoor use to
reduce the potential for harmful interference with co-channel Mobile Satellite
Systems.
Caution: Installation and service of Dell PowerConnect W-Series products should
be performed by trained service personnel only.
Caution: Make sure the IAP fits securely on the ceiling tile rail when hanging the
device from the ceiling.
