Maybe you could focus on one topic ?

If you unplug the Ethernet cable, you will not be able to reach its management interface. Isn't it logic ?

You need the AP to be powered. AP250 use PoE (Power over Ethernet) so you need the Ethernet cable to be connected. You can use PoE injector to inject power using a standard power input.

You don't need the AP to be reachable by the CAPWAP server once it has been configured, but you will not be able to manage it.

I'm really not sure you're serious or a scam =)

Unless you want 100% network security, then it's best to disconnect all your Access Points from any power source.

Do I need power for all my electronic devices, e.g. tv, radio, dishwasher, toaster; or can I unplug them and still expect them to work?
