WLAN mode (amber) vs N Mode (green)

  • 1.  WLAN mode (amber) vs N Mode (green)

    Posted Aug 09, 2012 03:50 PM

    Hello - we have several APs at a remote location that have both 11A/N and 11B/G/N LEDs showing Amber. 

    Aside from this in the install guide I see no references as to what the differnence is; what they should be. I assume Green.

    Can anyone link me to what the difference is between WLAN mode and N Mode?

    Is there anyway to force N Mode / Green lights?

     

    Thanks.

    You need to enable "high-throughput" under "rf dot11a/g" radio profiles to make them green

    When I check ".bg HT Mode" it shows: 

    HT-20mhz

     

    But the lights are still red? Any thoughts?

    Please check your settings on the following screen 

     

    Configuration/all-profiles/wireless lan/virtual-AP/SSID-profile/high throughput SSID profile

     

    "Highthroughput Enable (SSID) == checked"

     

    The setting you indicate above would only affect one of the radios in the AP, not both... so even if that was the setting it would not change both LEDs ;)


    Please try verifiying the settings I have here and see if the highlighted setting is 'enabled' at this time.


    Tks!
