    I accessed the AP-635 model from the console.

    How do I check if this is an Instance AP?

    The AP does not emit a SetMeUp SSID, so verification is required.

    What version of OS is it running?

    I’m sure there are better ways of doing it but the following should work

    1).if the AP is authenticating when connecting to the net via ClearPass, ClearPass should tell you its an instant AP from its fingerprint
    2) if connected to a 2930 and you have device fingerprinting enable, the lldp collector will tell you exactly what it is

    Log in to the AP and check its working mode on the web platform. Connect a PC to the AP using an Ethernet cable. Enter the AP's IP address in the browser. The AP's working mode is automatically displayed on the login page.
