Sorry for the noob question but I received a surplus NIB AP-215 that I was hoping to use it at home for my WiFi by plugging it into a router (via POE obviously).
However after reading here i gather that I need a controller to make this work. Is there a way to do this with software e.g a VM on a computer or reflash the AP with new firmware? or am I better off putting it in the too hard basket and getting something that doesn't require a controller.

If it is an IAP-215 it can work without a controller. If it is not, it requires a controller.

There are FCC regulatory restrictions, requiring that anything running IAP software be set from the factory that way. IAP can go to controller, but not the other way around.
