    hello, i have 2 x IAP205's which im looking to install in my house. at moment i working off a BT Home Hub 6.
    what i would like to do is install one upstairs as wifi signal is weak in the room that i work in. my plan was to plug on into the home hub and then connect the other one to it but not sure how about setting this up and if its possible. looking for an idiots guide to set up a set up with Aruba AP's.

    maku sure both AP getting ip address from your home router, and if both APs are in factory default state, it will automatically create virtual cluster. try to login any AP ip and you will redirect to controller login page.

    then you can continue with SSID configuration, SSID VLAN should be network assigned default to connect with same home subnet.

    These short videos may help to get you started. Note that this is an older version of the Web interface, but basics are similar.

    Also, when the video was created the default login was admin/admin, in newer versions, the username is still admin, the password is the serial number of your AP.
