    I am using 2 AP-535 under Unifi xg 6POE swicth.

    This switch supports bt power but the ap showing amber status light. No flag showing in virtual controller.

    The screen shot showing that Eth0 does have POE-bt, but the ap is not using that.

    Is the Amber flashing, or solid on the system LED? Is it amber on the Radio LED?
    The AP can negotiate the power being used over LLDP, is this enables on the switch side? It looks like it may already be on.

    Thank you for replying. 

    The amber light is solid on the system LED. The radio LED is solid Green. I have already enable the LLDP on the switch side.

    Yea it looks like its only receiving 802.3at power from the switch then. The solid amber means that it is running on limited PoE. IPM would be kicking in and turning off the USB and second ethernet port on the AP by default.

    If you log into the controller that it is terminating on and run a "show ap database" command, see if they have an "r" in the flag column. That would show that it is in restricted power mode.

    Also have you tried with disabling LLDP?

    Yes, I have tried turn off the LLDP, and still the same

    I cannot run the ap show database command when I ssh into the Virtual Controller, it says parse error. 

    My question is that AP eth0 power status can read that has BT power poe, why the ap is not using it.

    Do you have a console adapter cable and can you share the console output while the AP is booting up?

    Hi,

    As far as I know that LLDP should work both on the AP and controller. Otherwise it is not working.

    You may also look

    show ap debug system-status ap-name <AP NAME>  | begin "Power Status"

    how it is working.

    One of the switches we disabled "dot3TlvEnable" and it solved the problem.

    Look for a LLD options for your switch vendor.

    I updated from 8.6 to 8.9, seems it working fine right now. Both LEDs are green. 

    I upgrade the firmware for 160mhz support, but still no 160mhz option in 8.9.0.1

    Are you attempting to set the 160MHz channel manually (36S, 100S)?
