Red 11A/N and 11B/G/N LEDs

11A/N and 11B/G/N LEDs are both solid red. The power and the ENET are both green. What is the problem? The IAP is a 105-US.

 

Thanks,

Bill

I believe Aruba calls that color "amber" and that means that the associated radio is enabled and working.

 

I'm reading from the iAP100 Serias installation guide.

Two scenarios:

 

- Initially  the IAPs fresh out the box it is amber when it doesnt have a valid IP address 

- But If it has an IP address then it means that HT (.11n) is not enabled.

As Victor and msabin state, the solid amber (red) color for the 11A/N or 11B/G/N LEDs means the radio is enabled, however HT is not enabled.  

 

To enable on the IAP make sure you have not enabled Legacy Only for 2.4 and 5.GHz radios (Under RF --> Advanced Options --> Radio Tab.   When this is Disabled you enable 802.11n support for the particular radio (this is the default).
