AP105 radio lights

I have recently taken over as the wireless administrator at our place. I have a location that has complained about performance. I got to the facility and noticed that all the AP's have both radio lights as amber. I can see the SSID so the radio is working but I'm obviously expecting both lights to be green. I've changed the VAP to a known working and the lights turn green. I've looked through the configuration and compared to others and can't find the problem. I feel I'm obviously not looking in the right spot.

Any hints?

The WLAN would be Amber if any WLAN is broadcasting a non-802.11n SSID.

checked

I have checked the Advanced Services > All Profile Management > Wireless LAN > SSID Profile for both a working and a non-working SSID and the High-throughput SSID Profile for both is set to default.

Did I miss a setting somewhere else?

Re: AP105 radio lights

All profiles just shows a list of profiles. You need to see profiles structured as they are configured:

configuration> wireless> AP configuration. Edit the AP-group that your access points are in and look in Wireless LAN> Virtual AP> SSID profile> HT SSID profile.

I've been through that also and it's the same.

Re: AP105 radio lights

Right. The only supported ciphers for 802.11n is open and aes. If any other encryption types are broadcast on a radio, the radio will be amber to indicate that. 802.11n is still in use and working on the other SSIDs.
