Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

Hi everyone,

I have an 228 AP is provisioned with 7210 Controller running 6.5.1.4 OS.

My Ap only working as Air Monitors mode and i I couldn't find the way to change it from Air Monitor mode to AP mode.

Any one can show me step by step to fix this issue ?

Is AP license install?


Thank you,

Re: Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

The AP appears to have been provisioned in the "default" ap-group, which I suspect is using AM-Mode in the Radio profiles. You will need to either change the AP mode within Radio Profiles or re-provision the AP to a different ap-group where the AP's are configured to use AP mode.

Re: Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

Hi zalion,

You're right. My 228 AP have been provisioned in the "default" ap-group, but i have a  question that why after provision, only 228 model have been changed to Air Monitor while 325 model still is AP mode

 

Thanks for help.

Re: Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

Are they both in the default ap-group? What is the regulatory domain of of the AP228 set on the default group? Are you able to provide the output of the below?

 

#show ap database
#show log all | include XXXX (wired MAC of AP)

Use this command for check compatible of AP model "show ap allowed-channels country-code <country-code> ap-type 228"

Hi Zalion,

Sorry for lately reply,

They both in the default group. I  don't clear about "regulatory domain" but hence is output:

Re: Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

Thanks, if you don’t know the regulatory domain of the AP (you’ll be able to find this under the sap-group) could you let us know the country where the AP is installed?

Please also run the following command

show ap allowed-channels country-code ap-type 325

==> Refer the output, Does my 228 ap not allowed with any channel and can't use ?

Many thanks

Re: Change Air Monitor mode to AP mode

Can you confirm which DRT you are running? It seems that the 228 in Vietnam is supported from DRT 1.0_61955 onwards.
