I can't find any information on what this situation might be -- the only red ENET LED situation on the AP105 information sheet is a solid red when it fails to boot.
Could it be something like a duplex mismatch, or collisions, etc.? i.e. some sort of ethernet interface problem?
Is there a command I can use to query the status of the AP in this area? I've tried various things like 'show ap detail advanced ...' -- but that yields a lot of information and no obvious errors. The ap debug log doesn't show anything other than a boot and a rogue AP detected.

Are you sure it's red and not amber? An amber ethernet light means the AP-105 is running 100Mb instead of Gigabit.
To check, you can run "show ap debug system-status ip-addr x.x.x.x". The speed/duplex info is toward the end of the output and will look like:
Ethernet Duplex/Speed Settings
Autoneg Speed (Mbps) Duplex Iface

I've not seen the AP myself as it's out in a college. However, testing one here, I would say the light was more red than amber! (The local IT officer did send a photo but it was off a phone and the lighting could have been weird!)

Then again, some people's eyes have a hard time telling amber and red apart anyway...
Regardless, in this case, you're fine. It's just telling you the AP is connected to 100Mb/s vs gig.
