Aruba 225 LED Status

[ Edited ]

Morning,

 

I was looking for some information on the meaning of the LED's on a 225 AC Access Point.

 

I have seen some that are flashing green and some that go orange. Curious as to exactly what they all mean. Also can you let me know how I can check if an Access Point is broadcasting at AC or not.

 

Thanks.

Here are the different LED status meanings:

You can run show ap bss-table ap-name <ap-name> and look for a-VHT for the phy.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Thank you to both of you.

 

I understand that VHT (Very High Throughput) means AC, unless I am mistaken. Meaning since my APs are reporting that in their status section they are pushing out AC Wireless.

 

I was not sure as despite having PWR, ETH, 2.4GHz & 5.0GHz all green an Engineer told me that without a POE+ Injector I would not get full AC Wireless.

 

I believe I figure it out that a POE switch can't power multiple AC AP's, however a single POE Injector can power just 1 AP.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

If you are on the latest code, 6.3.1.x., af power can be used for VHT on the 225.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

is there a command in the controller cli that will allow us to see the power status of these APs? if they are full or in power save mode?

 

Thanks!

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Lots of info here, thank you all.

We recently changed all APs to 225 and ran to the same "issue".

However we were wondering if somehow we can force all AP to be in full mode (not POE power saving)

This is just an estetic issue on our case because the red light is disturbing the clients.

 

Thank you.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

I'm actually having the same problem with the new 325.  I can't seem to force it to use AT power.  Wondering if it is on the Cisco side as well.  I know this is old, but any solution?

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

What switch is this and what is your configuration on the switch side?
